SUMMER JOB AND EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS

Ongwanada provides summer job and educational opportunities for students in the following areas:

SUMMER POSITIONS
Ongwanada recruits a limited number of students during the summer months. The majority of placements occur within the Community Residences.

Applicants must be enrolled in a post-secondary program, preferably in Health Services, who will be continuing studies in the fall. Experience working with the developmentally disabled would be an asset.

Students will be paid the current minimum wage, plus 4% vacation entitlement.

Please submit your resume to Matt Fodey, Human Resources, Ongwanada, 191 Portsmouth Ave. Kingston, Ont. K7M 8A6 or email mfodey@ongwanada.com. Applications are accepted between January 1 and February 28 each year.

TEACHING AGREEMENT PLACEMENTS
Ongwanada became a teaching site for student placements in the 1980's, at which time the Board of Governors indicated that in order to safeguard the dignity and rights of clients, placements would proceed only if a teaching agreement is in place.

Ongwanada is involved with programs at Queen's Univeristy, St. Lawrence College, Loyola Community Learning, as well as six co-op opportunities with area high schools.

A current signed agreement between Ongwanada and your learning institute must be on file in order for a placement to occur. Please contact your program coordinator concerning student placement opportunities at Ongwanada.
