The theme of International Youth Day 2017 is Youth Building Peace.
Starting this summer, JOEY Restaurants is expanding the Cup of Care philanthropy program with a new initiative called Scoop of Care. For the month of August, $1 from each scoop of our Spun Daily Ice Cream will be donated to a local charity or cause as chosen by JOEY employees. JOEY Restaurant on Broadway chose Covenant House Vancouver as its beneficiary and for all of August $1.00 from the sale of their Raspberry Butterscotch Budino dessert goes to us.
In celebration of their Summer ‘Body & Soul’ Magazine Issue, I Like Her Style Vancouver is pleased to announce this celebratory event in support of a cause with soul.
Join Covenant House every Tuesday at the Roundhouse Community Center (181 Roundhouse Mews on the Corner of Davie & Pacific) from 4:30PM to 6:00 PM. All youth are invited to come from any program in CHV and you can also bring friends as long as they are 16-25. Roundhouse Community Centre has lots of different equipment for any sport you can think of that can be played in a gym.
Youth in and from care advocated for the BC Child and Youth In Care Week--now in its seventh year--so their brothers and sisters in care could grow up feeling celebrated for their diverse talents and accomplishments, surrounded by a supportive community who stands with them. They also wanted to raise awareness about the barriers they face and fight the stigma that comes with being a "foster kid."
This year, the ‘Caps are aiming to raise $50,000 in support of Covenant House Vancouver and our mental health programs through #BuckUp for Mental Health. The campaign culminates at the ‘Caps match this Saturday, June 3 when Whitecaps FC take on Atlanta United FC at BC Place.
There are more ways than ever to get involved in #BuckUp for Mental Health:
1) Get your car really dirty.
2) Dig out some $.
3) Get your dirty car cleaned by Whitecaps FC players! All funds raised will go towards #BuckUp for Mental Health in support of Covenant House Vancouver.
4) All $50 donations get a $50 Chevron gift certificate.
