This Weeks Spotlight features Trevor Weaver, who graced us with a great writeup:

I am Trevor “Sir Trevor of Brooklyn” Weaver. I was looking for a change of pace and was thankful to begin working at Aviator in January 2017 after 5 years of working for a non-profit organization focused on changing the lives of the children in Harlem, NY. As part of the Aviator Youth Programs department, I have the position of Manager on the Afterschool and Summer Camp team. I support our director Jason Vasquez with creating a quality Afterschool and Summer Camp program for our Aviator families in hopes that they will come back year after year for the Aviator experience.

It took me a while to adjust to the vibe of Aviator’s staff. I was not entirely used to having everyone know and greet you warmly throughout the day. It’s personally an aspect of working here that I truly appreciate. Also as a sports enthusiast the concept of working in a facility where you are within walking distance of an ice rink, basketball courts, and football fields is a treat for me.

I have been working with children in some capacity since 1999. As a child my mother, a registered nurse in Labor & Delivery would sneak me into the ward where I would dress in doctor’s scrubs and I would burp the newborns after I fed them their formula. New mothers weren’t sure if they saw a child feeding their baby or if the meds from giving birth had not worn off yet.

Now I get to impart my experience on others and get to be silly with the children and get paid for it. I find that the best of both worlds. Through the years my interest change but they always revolve around the betterment of youth. My inspirations vary from a cool kid in the 4th grade to a father and his daughter on Instagram. My biggest inspirations are my wife, Melissa, of 6 yrs and our 3 yr old Savannah. They are everything I need as for as comedians, best friends, debaters and overall focus for me to best person I can.
