If you are between 15-29 years old you are invited to join the Nanaimo Youth 20/20 Can Project. Under the umbrella of Volunteer Nanaimo this project creates opportunities for youth to engage in volunteering in the community and to turn their passions into projects.
Even during the pandemic Youth 20/20 Can is actively volunteering! With the Covid-19 in mind we are volunteering social distance style doing projects outside. We have planning meetings in person in local parks or school fields or sometimes on Zoom. Volunteers share their ideas about projects, events or activities that matter to them and then the youth engagement team supports them to manage and lead the projects developing skills such as team building, project management, leadership, positive risk-taking, and confidence. Volunteers are also offered valuable workshops, mentorships, and a chance to network and to develop new skills.
