A Farewell to Summer (Associates)

Each summer Thorek/Scott & Partners has the pleasure of working with a collection of summer associates - students in a variety of stages in their university careers - who assist us on a wide range of projects.

In addition to bringing their productivity and smarts to the office, our students share their energy and enthusiasm with everyone around them, brightening our summer (especially those summers when the sun isn't so bright).

A few weeks ago we celebrated a successful summer, and wished our students all the best in the coming school year.

From everyone at Thorek/Scott & Partners, a big THANK YOU to Kali, Sarah, Jacquie, Zach, Carly, and Zack for a wonderful summer. Your hard work and spirit will be missed.

Two and a half hours outside Toronto, located on Kawartha Lakes near Dorset Ontario, are beaches and forests waiting to be explored by the children at Moorelands Wilderness Camp. Week long sessions run throughout the summer, offering campers the opportunity to canoe, kayak, learn archery, snorkeling, and test their bravery on high rope courses. For many children, camp is a right of passage - but for children from low income families and neighbourhoods in Toronto, camp is not always an option. Moorelands Community Services, located in Toronto, offers subsidized summer camp, reducing the fee for parents from $1000/week to as little as $25/week - providing children the opportunity to participate in the summer camp experience.

Moorelands Toronto community center offers after school programs that aim to develop positive, confident, and successful children. For over a hundred years, Moorelands have been encouraging physical activity, life skills development, character development, cultural competence, tolerance and appreciation for diversity, and fostering connections with peers, role models and community.
At Thorek/Scott & Partners we are proud to partner with Moorelands. As recruiters, we spend our days meeting people in a variety of stages in their career. We know how important it is to have experiences and opportunities that build confidence and skills. Economic circumstance should never keep a child or candidate from reaching their potential.
