Northridge Foursquare Church is a local organization that aside from Sunday Church service provides many programs to engage the community. They have programs for all ages such as youth groups and Sunday school.
This summer Alex and Matthew are two Canada Summer Jobs students working at Northridge Foursquare Church. Their job is to work with both the children and the youth in the Church and complete tasks such as preparing Sunday morning lessons, organize volunteers, host youth nights and teach Bible studies. Matthew is a student at the University of the Fraser Valley who is working towards his teaching degree. This work experience has allowed Matthew to strengthen his Faith, strengthen his people skills, and learn how to become more organized. He has also learned to meet kids where they are at and tailor his teachings to each individual kid because they all have different backgrounds and stories.
Alex also attends the University of the Fraser Valley studying French and sociology and her goal is to teach French immersion. Alex has strengthened her communication skills and has learned how to build a curriculum, which will help with her future career as a teacher. She expressed how much she enjoys being a role model for children and youth as it allows them to grow and learn.
It was great meeting you both Alex and Matthew. Keep up the inspiring work!
