VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

CAMILA FRANCO

Camila was a volunteer for the Scribbles & Giggles and Dance Without Limits programs and is now volunteering for the Art Expressions program. Not only did she help with the program, she was also the amazing face painter at New Year’s Party and will be our face painter at the Spring Family Celebration.

“I started with CPAA in 2017 with the Scribbles & Giggles program and have since helped at the Dance program and Adult art program. I am not really sure now why I stumbled onto CPAA but I know why I have stayed – the people. Having the privilege to interact and create memories with the clients, who have ranged widely in age and personality, continues to be an enriching experience for me. It is a constant reminder that we always have something to learn from others, and something to offer. I hope I can make them feel as happy as they make me!”

“I work at a youth justice committee, the Youth Restorative Action Project, helping to elevate the voices of those often not heard. I graduated with a BA from the University of Alberta and will be starting BCL/LLB program at McGill University in the fall. Regardless of where I am, I will continue to support and stay connected with CPAA!”  Thank you Camila!
