Description:We have a variety of programs ranging from child care, youth services, seniors programming to community events. The students placed in a three-week field experience at Parkgate will have opportunities to work with a variety of our programs and we can - to a certain extent - arrange for them to work in areas that are of particular interest to them. In April and May, the students could help organize our volunteer appreciation week and our child care appreciation week. In June, we have our seniors appreciation week. Also, starting in May, we begin the organizing work for our big Community Day that is held each year in early September. This involves a lot of planning and reaching out to the community to get local sponsors and finding local groups that would like to perform, as well as planning the various events and activities that will be happening on the day. In May and June we can also involve the students with our summer volunteer recruitment, orientation and training activities.
