National Youth Volunteer Programs Work with VBY
Since 2009, VBY has worked with National youth programs Katimavik youth (until 2012) and Canada World Youth (until 2015) during their rotation in Whitehorse. These dedicated youth volunteers were placed with all types of local non-profits and actively participated in the community from 2009-2014.
VBY collaborated with these youth organizations to ensure that they came to Yukon, and that their time spent in Yukon was fulfilling. VBY’s office was headquarters for all of the youth to promote both Katimavik and World Youth, and organize volunteer efforts.
The youth were an immense help with the 2014 Education, Volunteer and Career Expo in November 2014, assisting with every aspect of the Expo. The youth brought energy, creativity and lots of fun to all of their volunteer efforts. They assisted with a number of community efforts and celebrated their time in Yukon by producing a podcast, a song and a video, all of which can be viewed here.
