Wally’s summer in Chiliwack, BC

October 12th, 2017

Hi, my name is Wally Issigaitok, and I am from Hall Beach, Nunavut.

I was placed in Chilliwack, British Columbia, and I worked at the Salvation Army for three weeks and then moved to the YMCA for the rest of my placement.

At first I was working with adults at the food bank where those who needed it could get free food and at the YMCA I was working with kids who were very fun to be around. The YMCA was the best thing I have ever done! At first it was hard, but then I got used to it and planned some great activities which helped me not feel homesick.

During NYA, I learned that I could be away from home for a long time.
