CJ has been involved in our agency in a variety of ways, going above and beyond to assist the agency in our quest for additional funding to support our programs.
CJ was a member of our Ambassador Program. Launched in 2012, the Ambassador Program gave children and mentors in our programs the opportunity to tell their story at our Special Events, third party events and to our media partners to give members of the community a glimpse into the work that we do, and how rewarding it is to be a part of mentorship. CJ had been media trained by the CEO and PR Officer and has contributed her voice to local newspaper articles, television spots and radio interviews to spread the word about our programs. She has also presented at several service clubs to add impact to monetary asks for our programs.
In January 2013, CJ was a guest speaker at our Niagara Regional Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids Sake Media Launch. She was introduced by Niagara Chief of Police Jeff McGuire and spoke candidly about her experiences as a Little Sister. Many local media representatives and major sponsors were in attendance.
In October 2013, CJ was selected as a representative of our agency to take part in a “Take A Little to Legislature Day” at Queens Park, Toronto. She was paired with MPP Monique Taylor who is the NPD Child and Youth Critic. CJ spent the day with Ms. Taylor and was the MC for the “Little’s Panel” at the Queen’s Park Reception that evening. She was responsible for introducing the other Little’s from across the province in attendance and asking them questions about their experiences with their Big.
For everything you did for our agency, CJ, we say a BIG thank you! Thank you for going above and beyond, and being a model ambassador of our agency 🙂
