Can you tell me about Kinbridge?

What I love about Kinbridge is that when I first got hired on here everyone was so friendly and so inviting. I felt like I was immersed or love or something. Because everyone was just so kind and I was not expecting that because whenever it may be that’s something completely foreign and you are new to it, you always have assumptions and stuff like that and you don’t know how it’s going to be. But Kinbridge like exceeded all my expectations, It was wonderful, I had the most heartfelt like warm welcome onto the team.

When did you first get involved?

I got involved with Kinbridge in 2014.

Why do you keep being connected?

I think because I made so many new friends like co-workers. I don’t even consider them as co-workers anymore because we’re like literally friends and we do things outside of program. And I’ve met so many cool people and unique people in the community as well so whether it’s the kids that we work with or the parents we work with whatever it may be. Whoever we have come in contact with have been like wonderful. They have given us a lot of good feedback about Kinbridge too which is just kind of shows you that it’s a good sign that you’re in a good spot right now.

Can you tell me about Kinbridge?

I don’t even know what to say, somebody has to be here to know what it is to know exactly what it is to get the gist of it. It’s like it’s community built, they’re there to help, not away from you, they are there to give to you. They do afterschool programs, bike rodeos, drop ins, family outreach, inREACH, all that.

A lot of programs I have to think about it. All the afterschools, the foodbank downstairs, help with clothes, grocery cards and stuff.

When did you first get involved?

Kinbridge sent me to summer camp when I was ten, sent me to Timmies camp and then I was an LIT. Then I’m here afterschool, summer camp, bike rodeo. Get paid now as a leader.

Why do you keep being connected?

Everyone smiles. Nobody’s grouchy. Get involved.
