EPIC Sustainable Living Festival Youth Initiative Vancouver

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. If we were to match volunteers with specific jobs that matched their skills and experiences, we believe that the volunteers will work more efficiently and contentedly. 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.
