Hammond Learning Program
I like coming here to learn how to read. It is a good place to come. The people are very good to you and they help you to learn. They will help you to learn how to spell and they will also help you get your grade 12. You can come every week. The hours are 5:00 to 8:30. I like to come for a long time because I can read very good. Sometimes I don’t come as much as I like because I got a lot of things on the go and I will be out of the city about 7 or 8 weeks of the year. I will be coming for a long time. I like to do more at home but I do not have the time because I work a boat 65 or 70 hours a week and when I am not working I am always doing something. You always learn something when you are here. And I am not very good in doing a story.

I have been with Winners for 10 years. I have been there the longest of all the staff.
They threw me a surprise party. Everybody gave me a card with Mickey Mouse on it. The managers gave me a cake with a sun and rainbows on it. There were different colours. It was white, blue and purple. There were balloons on the cake too.
I work at Winners through a special program at the Job Brokerage Centre.
I am a show processor. I take shoes out of the box and papers and plastics and gel and sort them out in different garbage cans.
I work three days a week. I hope I can stay for another ten years!
