KEYS’ new Program Co-ordinator Kristina and new staff support and Job Coach Rob joined us in April. Kristina partners her passion for holistic nutrition with helping our young adults grow and learn in our community. Rob brings his field experience and love of fitness and technology to work with KEYS. Welcome both to our KEYS’ team!
KEYS’ Community Contributors celebrated three new placements started at Pollock’s Home Hardware, Wise Daughter’s Workshop and at Smock Café and Wonder Workshop. THANKS to Victoria, our Community Contributor Co-ordinator for helping with these!
KEYS’ Volunteer Appreciation Lunch was held on April 26 to honour the wonderfully generous people who regularly give so many hours of their time to help support our daily activities. Their help is so appreciated on a weekly basis by all staff and participants! KEYS served them a delicious pasta primavera lunch and then KEYS was treated to a Button Beading workshop by our volunteer Jan.
Earth Day at High Park meant that KEYS put on their gloves and grabbed garbage bags to leave High Park a cleaner and greener site! We thank our friend Larissa for leading several walks, Lunch ‘n Learn days and FUNction@the Junction nights. Happy trails to Larissa as she settles in Calgary with the Alberta Association for Community Living.
Community Spirit Award from CEC presented to Lauren! KEYS was so proud of Lauren for winning this award. Her generous and kind spirit makes her very deserving of this recognition. BRAVO!
KEYS now looks forward to the next few weeks with enthusiasm as we welcome our community friends and partners to share new opportunities for growth and personal development. We strive for a positive, upbeat learning environment where Safety, Inclusion and Respect (SIR) are always our priorities.
