TIRF Rugby Testimonial

12/12/2017 11:38:25 AM
Organization Name: TIRF Rugby

This summer, TIRF partnered with Moving Towards Opportunity (MTO) – an initiative by Toronto Employment and Social Services and a range of community partners, to give young people in Regent Park opportunity to have meaningful summer work experience. Regent Park resident and high school student Christiana underwent 12 weeks of job readiness training before starting her summer job placement with TIRF. Christiana worked in office on program coordination and also facilitated the Thursday night house leagues. Summing up her experience, Christiana writes:

“Working at Toronto Inner-City Rugby Foundation (TIRF) has been an amazing experience! The last two months have taught me a lot that I know I will be able to use in school, future jobs, and in life. Working at TIRF teaches you how to be a team player - its a great to teach others and learn from them as well. TIRF is not only affecting the lives of kids learning rugby for the first time but also us – the summer staff.”

TIRF is currently planning their winter calendar. Stay tuned!
