August 2016 Newsletter
Summer is almost over so please make sure to get your youth involved with a summer camp. Registrations for the majority of camps are still taking place. This is a fantastic way for your youth to meet new friends and get lots of exercise.
Kids Up Front
We would like to thank Kids Up Front for continuing to provide our youth with tickets to different events within the GTA. Within the last month our youth have been able to attend Blue Jays games, Argos games along with getting tickets for TFC II and ROM. These tickets are oftentimes very hard to come by. Please make sure you respond to your emails when these tickets are being offered! It is a great way to get your youth involved along with giving them great experiences.
A friendly reminder: please make sure that if you request tickets you use them. These tickets are given to us by numerous donors and we want to make sure er put them to good use. If for some reason you can no longer attend an event let Leanne at the Head Office know so she can offer the tickets to another home.
All staff should make sure they speak with their managers if they need First Aid/CPR training. HYS expects all their staff to be fully trained and qualified in order to provide the upmost care to our clients. Also, if any staff needs UMAB training, the managers must contact Gamin to schedule a training date.
HYS would like to acknowledge our new Program Supervisor at our Budworth Group Home Residence. Kirsten Rakacky has 5 years of experience working with youth in a residential setting and we are pleased to have her as a part of our agency.
