Experience with Children:
Luc brings 9 years of experience working with children and youth of all ages. Luc began his career at the University of Manitoba as a student in the Faculty of Science and shortly thereafter became a Leader for Mini U Programs.  His love for the programs lead him to switch both his educational and career paths as he became a strong member of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management’s Active Living team. Within the Mini U Programs, Luc thrived in various positions with increasingly levels responsibility. In his six years as a Program Supervisor, Luc has contributed in several capacities (Special Interest, Sports, Leadership and Community programming areas) and worked closely with Program Coordinators in the creation and implementation of leadership development learning outcomes, new programming and events, the redesigning of employee training strategies and restructuring of the summer programs.  Luc is also in his second year with Recreation Services as an Intramural Supervisor at the University of Manitoba.
