We are starting off the new year with two new members of the team. We are pleased to welcome two placement students from Algonquin College and Brock University, Emily and Curtis.
Emily is the new Community Relations and Program Coordinator here at Kids Up Front Ottawa. She is a graduate of the Media and Communications program at Algonquin College and a soon-to-be graduate from the Public Relations program. Emily has worked with kids her whole life and will continue to do so here at Kids Up Front. She says “I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to help kids all over Ottawa. Kids Up Front is an amazing charity. I love seeing pictures of the kids at different events, it warms my heart.”
Curtis is the new Student Program Coordinator. He is a graduate from the Social Service program at Algonquin College and now in his final year at Brock University taking Recreation and Leisure Studies. Curtis is passionate about athletics, mentoring, coaching and giving back to the community. Curtis says, “I am very excited to have the chance to be a part of the Kids Up Front foundation. I am looking forward to this opportunity and putting a smile on the kids’ faces.”
We are extremely excited to work with both these students in the upcoming months.
