Youth2Youth Club is a youth non-profit organization that offers opportunities for young adults to learn through interacting with different groups and helping those in need in local communities.
Our Mission is to inspire and provide a platform for people who are eager to accelerate positive changes in their communities.
Our vision is to create a platform that is accessible to every high school student who aspires to create positive changes in society.
In March, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of Covid-19 a global pandemic. Realizing the worries and struggles many families have faced, a group of young adults initiated an online meeting regarding the lives in their communities during the lockdown. On May 11 of the same year, Vancouver Youth2Youth Club was created, serving as an organization that connects youths to others, convey positive messages, and accelerate changes across diverse communities.
We organize donations, sales, activities, and challenges to help youths to better themselves and serve those in need. We encourage young adults to be innovators and free-thinkers.
We collaborate to host and co-host a variety of community events, such as raffles and charity sales. These events are all meant to help vulnerable populations. Our organization not only calls upon youths from numerous communities but also gathers people in our communities to contribute to a substantial cause.
We are a group of passionate volunteers who are willing to contribute to our communities with like-minded youths. We actively seek cooperation with other individuals, groups, and organizations, and strive to make a significant impact on society.
We are deeply concerned with how much impact we make on the minorities' lives as well as improving our work. We aim to connect with more youths and families to help in making a positive impact in the community we are living.
