The Arthritis Society

The Children's Foundation
2750 East 18th Ave, Vancouver, British Columbia

We help children heal from trauma and set them on the path to success in adulthood. Trauma may occur for many reasons and different children react differently to those experiences. Poverty, witnessing violence or coping with a mental health condition can greatly challenge a child's ability to grow and develop at a typical rate. Left untreated, the likelihood of difficulties into adulthood increases. We identify the sources of trauma and help a child cope and heal so they can look forward to a bright future.

High school students in Vancouver are all equipped with veritable arsenals of skills and experiences that they have accumulated from their experiences such as their education, their hobbies, or their culture.

More importantly, they will have the opportunity for rapid personal development in a field in which they are interested.
These opportunities will come from many different sources, and it is the job of Youth Initiative Vancouver to connect with these sources and search through all our registered volunteers for individuals with matching portfolios. We will continually monitor and evaluate our registered volunteers to ensure their commitment and quality of work.
