Youth Leader Story: Amin from Toronto Youth Development

Organization Name: Toronto Youth Development
Program Name: Academic, Sports and Character Enrichment Summer Camp
Date: November 20, 2017

 
Toronto Youth Development is extremely proud of our youth leaders and their commitment and resolve to consistently attend programming, build friendships, and express loyalty and respect to others.
 
Amin A. has been with Toronto Youth Development for over 5 years, developing his character and talents through our Academic, Sports, and Character Enrichment Summer Camps.
 
This past summer, Amin was named ASE Camper of the Summer for exhibiting excellence in academics and sports, whilst demonstrating virtues and good character all throughout the summer. As one of the eldest campers, Amin displayed great leadership skills and was even able to bring his team to the ASE Sport Tournament Finals.
 
In the classroom, Amin enjoyed the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) program. In particular he enjoyed, “ … [everything] from the regular STEM things to cooking and baking.” He also appreciated the application to daily life, stating, “After those regular classes, we learned life lessons like cooking dishes like pasta, and baking things like snickerdoodles.”
 
Having graduated our summer camp programming, we hope to have Amin back as a high school volunteer, where he can share with the younger campers his experience and remain an amazing youth leader.
