Meet our co-op student: Leah!
From the very first day of my co-op at United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes I felt welcomed and respected. Throughout my placement I have learned many things such as, communications, event planning, and social media.
Edwin Binney’s Community Garden was the main focus of my co-op placement, which I loved. Seeing the project come together from start to finish was so rewarding to watch.
I plan to take all the things I have learned from this placement and use them in the future.
My future goal is to go to Durham College and do the 4 year program for Public Relations.
I am so glad I got to take my schoolwork and turn it into practical work experience.
