This summer, Team Cornwall has the privilege of working with a local youth thanks to the “Summer Jobs For Youth” program offered through Cornwall’s Job Zone d’emploi. Justin Lalancette joins Team Cornwall this month as our first Summer Student Coordinator, and will work closely with both Team Cornwall and Teen Cornwall’s communications, events, and membership committees.
“The position I acquired at Team Cornwall has helped me with new skills such as public relations and communication plus leadership that will help me in the future to get a business-related job,” says Justin.
“Someday I hope to work in that domain and/or the marketing field. I believe it’s important to have a job you like. It improves your chances of acquiring new skills and becoming more successful.”
For six weeks, Justin will gain professional skills through the writing of articles and media releases, through social media and database management, and through public relations and community outreach. Justin is no stranger to involvement in the local community. An avid athlete, Justin now focuses his attention on race car driving at the local Cornwall Motor Speedway.
