From intern to employee
When I think about it, I realize that Welcome Hall Mission has been there at many stages of my life!
When I was in high school, I had the opportunity to visit Welcome Hall Mission. I learned about what the organization was doing in Montreal.
Following this experience, a friend told me they had been an employee of Welcome Hall Mission and strongly advised and encouraged me to work here.
As part of my studies, I had to do an internship in a community setting, so I had the chance to see Welcome Hall Mission in action. After seeing what goes on behind the scenes, I genuinely wanted to be part of the team. A job opportunity presented itself, and I evolved over the years from intern to maintenance worker to counsellor.
Many emergency sites had to deploy to help people experiencing homelessness with the health crisis. I was trusted and was allowed to perform in leadership roles as I continued to grow. I feel that I have learned so much and continue to learn day by day.
