Youth Engaging Sustainability

Youth Engaging Sustainability (YES) is an opportunity for youth to gain hands-on experience in constructive community action, increase their self-esteem and learn valuable communications skills. FORED organizes youth events, annual contests, polling and activity kits that provide BC youth with the means to learn more about complex community challenges andย bring their findings to a broader community audience to effect positive change. Through YES participation, youth gain community volunteer credentials that inspire andย support their career goals.
