Late last week CFN Productions once again had a chance to stop by for a visit with CFN's Totally Awesome Summer Camp's (TASC) counsellors and kids. Totally Awesome Summer Camp is a school-aged care program for kids ages 6 – 12; it supports parents to continue their LINC English classes over the summer. Participants enjoy fun crafts, games, and outings designed to develop their creative, communication and leadership skills. The program is led by two post-secondary students through the Service Canada Summer Student grant program.
During our visit we had the chance to talk with Raina Kim, one of our TASC Counsellors and summer students who is currently enrolled at the University of Saskatchewan. And was the case with her fellow counsellor Joy, there is some serendipity to her being here. Raina's mother attended the Centre for Newcomers as a LINC student. not long after the family of five immigrated to Canada from Seoul, South Korea. After arriving here at just 7 years old, Raina has now has completed that serendipitous circle in her position as a TASC counsellor at CFN. For a peek inside TASC, (during Science week no less!) and to hear Raina talk about her experiences simply watch below and for a few pics of our visit CLICK HERE.
