Afterschool Program Manager

Melanie Smith 

Meet Melanie Smith

Melanie has seen it all from the beginning. She was there when MAX offered bowling and the after school program was merely a handful of kids. She has been instrumental in growing the program to what it is today, and recently grew a little one herself who is just as life loving as Mel.

Melanie, her partner and their kiddos live in Dildo, NL and love to spend time outdoors, by the BBQ, or with family close by.

Melanie is very passionate about sports and recreation.  She is involved in a wide variety of sports such as hockey, softball and wrestling and continues explore other sports that inspire and challenge her.

She holds a number of diplomas and certificates including Community Recreation Leadership focussing on program planning, special event management and organizational behaviour.  She has also earned her First Aid/CPR, Class 4 Driver’s Certification, and most recently, an entry level diploma in Early Childhood Education.

Melanie’s main passion, however, is working with children.  She is extremely dedicated to positively impacting the lives of each child in her care.  She began her career with the Recess After School Program and in 2011 was thrilled to become an employee of the MAX After School Program.
