Vancouver Foundation - Youth Philanthropy Council
Civic engagement is important, especially for our youth.
Vancouver Foundation is nurturing the next generation of volunteers with our Youth Philanthropy Council. Young people on the council invite youth organizations to submit proposals and then decide which projects are most deserving of support -- everything from skate parks to the environment to theatre groups.
Volunteer Vancouver works with youth to connect them to causes they care about.
Members of the Youth Philanthropy Council encourage youth to seek volunteer work they are really passionate about, just like they did.
