Gertrude’s Co-Op Placement

Gertrude from Madonna Catholic Secondary School completed her co-op placement at DYS. We had a great time working with Gertrude and wish her all the best in her future.

Here’s a reflection from Gertrude in her own words:

Hi my name is Gertrude Fugah. I’m 17 years old and I attend Madonna Catholic Secondary School. I’m in the 12th grade and I did my coop placement at Delisle Youth Service. YAH!! Most people call it DYS for short. As I walked in Delisle I met great and amazing people such as Britney the reception, Katie the one who inspired me to be here, Rebecca who is always willing to help out with anything you ask her and never stops saying thank you to everyone that helps her. Delisle has such an amazing staff who welcomes everyone that comes in as one of their own. Delisle Youth Services was found in 1973, it’s located at 40 Orchard View Blvd, Suite 225, Toronto Ontario. When I first started it was incredible because the staff welcomed me as one of them even though I thought there was a vast age difference between us. We make lots of jokes and laughed every minute however when it is time to work, we concentrate on our works. I have gotten to know most of the staff at Delisle. I have learned so about the work field thanks to DYS. Thank you Delisle I really appreciate everything that they have done for me and I have learned so much. I have definitely enjoyed my placement at Delisle Youth Services. Delisle Rocks!!!
