Recently our youth had an amazing time hiking Mount Garibaldi with Power To Be. Power To Be is a nonprofit organization that empowers people to explore their limitless abilities through inclusive adventures rooted in nature. Power To Be believes everyone belongs in nature and we couldn’t agree more.
Thank you Power To Be for helping homeless and at-risk youth access nature!
Music is a shared experience that transcends economic, social and racial barriers. Music has a way to capture and release memories; process feelings and allow us to express ourselves. With my amateur guitar skills and interest from the guys in Crisis Program, we had our own Covenant House Music Group.
For the past 8 months, youth worker Sarah has taken time out of her day to make the Crisis Program space just a little bit more welcoming to the youth we serve.
This past weekend was quite a busy one. At one point, we had up to twenty young women here at the Crisis Program; so we made sure to run some fun activities to keep the youth active. On Saturday, we took some youth to the swimming pool in Kits—everyone loved it!
The young ladies in our Crisis Program have been working on a garden project since early spring. The project has grown even larger than expected and the girls have loved working on their garden and learning about planting and caring for it. You can learn more about it here.
Here are some photos of the garden which is doing so well. The girls have been busy caring for all their plants, veggies and flowers!
Recently 5 youth and Youth Worker Darren went kayaking and camping around Harrison Lake with the support of Power To Be!
On a Friday morning, our group kayaked across Harrison Lake to the Bear Creek Campground. Once there, our youth learned how to set up tents, and got to cooking some much needed dinner. On the Saturday, we kayaked up the lake to another remote campsite next to a beautiful waterfall. The youth loved camping out and roasting marshmallows on the fire.
