To the Editor:
This summer, we will hire a student recreation assistant at Let Abilities Work to help with our summer program thanks to a Canada Summer Jobs grant from Service Canada.
Most folks know that Let Abilities Work is setup to promote full inclusion in Pictou County life. The student recreation assistant will help us in promoting and providing social and recreational activities for our residents who have some sort of physical problem, limitation or disability. Some of the activities our group promotes and supports include adaptive recreation like bowling, archery, gardening, fishing, curling and social activities like meetings and get together, barbecues, bus trips and picnics.
While we will welcome applications from university or community college students, our CSJ Grant will only fund eight weeks of employment at minimum wage so this position is perhaps best suited to a high school student. We’ll be seeking a student who is a self starter and can take initiative and be responsible as we need someone who can work without constant supervision.
If you know a student who you think might be suitable for and interested in working in this summer position, feel free to suggest that he or she apply by sending a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. The student can find full details on this position in the Job Bank or by checking the Let Abilities Work Facebook page.
