Reflecting on the LIST Program

During our 7 weeks of the LIST program, not only did we learn valuable lessons for our future, but we got the chance to meet diverse people of different walks of life. On the first day, nobody knew each other and an awkward silence filled the room. However, as time passed we all became friends. We bonded together and shared various ideas with each other during the workshops.

We also had the opportunity to listen to guest speakers who provided us with information that could only come with experience. They taught us things we didn’t know about the workforce and we really appreciated all the effort they put into their presentations.

Our GLOW placement was one of the best parts of the program because of the experience we gained - and being able to help people find the perfect outfit. Overall, LIST was a great opportunity that we are sure will help us greatly in the years to come.

New Circles' GLOW clothing service is the largest clothing bank in Toronto. We help 12,000 people of all ages annually.
