We are proud to present year 13 of the TCDSB’s Focus On Youth program. This year, our program will be running from July 6th to August 21st. Even though Focus On Youth has gone virtual, that doesn’t stop students from earning $14/hr and 2 credits! We have four positions, media team, organizational/administrative, custodial, and camp counsellor. This summer, we have over 150 staff employed. We started off our program with a one-week training session, where all of our staff were able to learn leadership skills in order to create a successful camp experience and act as leaders, advocates, mentors, and change agents. The journey never ends!
Training prepared our Camp staff to resolve conflicts, engage campers, and build meaningful relationships while completely running Camp sessions remotely online. It also prepared staff to run their own Camp programs and divide into one of the four Disciplines to encourage staff to explore their skill set and help them thrive in an environment that aligns with their interests. This year, our four Disciplines are; Leadership, Art, Sports, and S.T.E.A.M. to create a diverse and engaging program for campers during this time.
Recap video coming soon!
