This past year, many Conrad Grebel University College students were drawn to care for others in congregate settings for summer jobs and coop work terms. Long-term care and L’Arche, a community that supports adults with intellectual disabilities, were two such organizations. Though COVID-19 has changed the way students performed in their roles and has posed some challenges, the pandemic did not diminish the amazing experiences, connections, and joy involved in these placements.
