4th Year Child & Youth Care Program
Toronto Metropolitan University
My name is Cindy and I am a fourth year Child and Youth Care student at TMU. Through my placement with MCASS, I not only intend to apply my skills and what I’ve learned from my previous experiences, but also learn and experience new things.
Over the past year, I have been working with children and youth coming from low-income neighbourhoods in both online and in-person after-school programming and summer camp. It was through these experiences that I recognized the importance of empowering children and youth as well as establishing a sense of community. I believe that it is so important to create opportunities for children and youth to develop the skills they need to grow and succeed, as well as ensure that this is all happening in a safe inclusive environment.
I am so excited to be completing my internship with MCASS this year as I find that we have similar values and goals when it comes to empowering and supporting the children, youth, and families within this community.
