Jobs West Success: Lily

In 2016, Lily joined Jobs West Employment Services after participating in DDA’s Youth Transition Program, funded through the MCFD.  Throughout her time with Jobs West, she participated in many volunteer and work experiences.  While gaining new skills and committing to her vocational goals, Lily obtained 2 paid part-time positions.

We would like to congratulate Lily on making a positive impact in her new paid position at This World’s Ours Centre, an inclusive centre in the heart of Vancouver that offers a variety of programs for neurodiverse children and families. Lily first attended regular programming at the center prior to her coming on as staff. Through Lily’s own connections, a paid position was created and customized based on Lily’s skillset and the center’s needs. Lily started at This World’s Ours Centre in October and has quickly become an invaluable member of the staff. Her duties include cleaning the center, assisting with after-school programming, and greeting members.

It has been a pleasure having Lily work at This World’s Ours Centre as she is a hard worker, a calm presence, and always willing to jump in and help where needed. We hope to continue having Lily be a part of our team for a long time to come as the staff and participants really enjoy having her at the center.” – Koryn Heisler, Owner, This World’s Ours Centre. 

Lily has worked very hard over the past 4 months to maintain the position and bring a great attitude to her shifts. Lily has done this while maintaining her other job at Winners were she has worked since 2019. Way to go Lily!
