Here at Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre, we are proud to have such great opportunities that allow us to learn and share from our own success stories here at our agency. With our transitional program, we have been inspired by two great men; Angelo & William.
Angelo came to Canada from South Sudan in 2002 with nothing but the clothes on his back and had to quickly adjust to our cold, harsh Canadian winters. With help from our staff at CONC, Angelo is focused on completing his high school diploma and working towards a welders apprenticeship.
William, recently arrived from Kenya, is completing his studies in nursing while also continuing his previous talent and passion for long distance running. Perhaps you might have spotted William from the many recent marathons?
We always love to learn about the amazing motivation and focus from our very own community and participants with achieving their personal goals! Successes like this these, remind us of the great work we inspire to do at CONC. For more information and to learn about other successes, please follow our social media pages or contact us.
