I am so excited that we are finally launching our Give Where You Live program! I have been working on this project for the past year, living and breathing our Youth in Philanthropy vision, and have been enthusiastically anticipating the arrival of our launch day.
This program is going to play a huge part in ensuring youth know what giving back is all about, how it helps their local community, and more importantly how good giving back feels. Our vision is to have youth from all across Canada working together towards the common goal of bettering the world they, and their neighbours, live in.
As someone who grew up not really being aware of the social needs in my community, nor how I could help others, I am thrilled that through is program the youth of today will grow up better educated, more engaged and further empowered to give back and really make a difference.
