DeAndre

One of our outstanding kitchen stars has been 15-year old volunteer, DeAndre. During summer, DeAndre was too old for day camp life and not old enough for paid employment, but found himself a home in the kitchen volunteering with us making and serving lunch to more than 1500 campers over the summer. 
 
The job wasn’t glamourous and certainly not a typical way for a 15-year old to spend his summer holiday. In his first week, DeAndre put in almost 30 hours at the dish pit, scrubbing away at pots and pans, rinsing and sanitizing dishes and filling water cups. His work ethic was inspiring. 
 
What stood out about DeAndre was not only his willingness to take on any chopping and cleaning tasks but also his leadership role showing new youth and corporate volunteers the ropes in the kitchen – one of the things he enjoyed most over the summer! DeAndre also had the opportunity to learn culinary skills under the expert guidance of our very own Chef Victoria Zielinski and Scotia Club’s Chef Jamie Robb. 

The Nutrition Hub is one of the many ways that MLSE LaunchPad provides youth like DeAndre opportunities to learn life skills like work ethic, commitment, time management, communication, team work and leadership. 
 
DeAndre dedicated over 100 hours of service to MLSE LaunchPad to support the local community – we feel lucky to have worked with him, witness his work ethic, and watch him take ownership of his role at MLSE LaunchPad!
