Anthony Trinh shares his volunteer time with Kitchener Public Library and City of Kitchener, so together we nominated him for a youth community award of excellence. And…
He won the Kitchener Youth Action Council - Intergenerational Award! HURRAY!
John Quincy Adams said that “if your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader”.
Based on this definition, Anthony Trinh is an extraordinary leader!
At Tech Tutors, Anthony meets one-on-one with customers seeking computer help. He teaches adults how to use technology in an accessible way every week. At Stanley Park Community Centre, Anthony teaches small classes of children to play the guitar and discover a love of music. He is very patient and knowledgeable and able to create a positive learning environment when working with others
Last year, the City hosted a program for Syrian Refugee children. Anthony played games with the children and made them feel very welcome. Anthony’s leadership style created warm and lasting memories for the participants even when language was a barrier.
He has been part of Kidspark Festival’s leadership team for 2 years, working cooperatively with City staff to lead a discovery zone for children. He trained and supervised 30 teen volunteers and ensured the smooth running of his area. And he provided the type of support that empowered others to make the most of their volunteer experience.
Anthony truly believes that no matter how big or small an action is, it will always create a ripple effect that will benefit all. We are awe-inspired by Anthony’s volunteer efforts; he has made a positive impact and strengthen our community.
We thank him for sharing his time, leadership and passion for giving back!
