This winter, we need to raise $10,000

 

This fall, four extraordinary young people arrived in Whistler. They didn’t come from overseas, but from our backyard: Vancouver and the Sea to Sky Corridor. They joined the Work 2 Live program to work hard, build relationships, and snowboard as much as they can.

But they also joined the program to break themselves out of a cycle of instability and homelessness that has kept them from pursuing their goals. They’re here to experience growth: to learn new skills, build new relationships and find purpose. 

Our job is to provide them with the support and skills they need to succeed. We provide them with stable staff housing that they can call home. We place them in jobs with Whistler Blackcomb where they can play to their strengths. We organize weekly activities including Ride Days and Family Dinners, to help them build relationships and feel connected to the Whistler community. And, crucially, we’re always there to listen and provide unconditional support.

 

But we need your help.

Whatever you can give this winter, your donation will directly help these four inspiring young people. You might be providing them with a safe and comfortable home, access to outdoor adventure, or one-to-one mentoring and support.

If you’d like to give, simply complete the form below. Once you have donated, you will receive a tax receipt via email.
Remember, only donations made before December 31 are tax deductible!
