We’re happy to present you the coordinator of the Park Animators for CDN this summer : Jean-Claude.

For the past years, he was in charge of “Parc animé” for CDN, a community program a bit like Park Animators, but for kids between 5 and 11 years old instead of youth between 11 and 17 years old.

This year, Jean-Claude tought about a new challenge. Working in the same multicultural environment, but with teens: “Some of them have issues and they don’t know where to go to find some help. One of the mandates of Park Animator is to do so by referring them to different services in or outside the neighbourhood.”

For Jean-Claude, the Park Animators for CDN program is also allowing those kids to meet new people and just have fun doing activities outside: “During the winter, some of them are more pushed to stay inside their apartment, living in a really family focused atmosphere. With this project, the fact that they play outside with us contribute to offer them new constructive social experiences.”
