Back to School Season: Empowering Youth Education at CHV

With back-to-school vibes just around the corner, many young minds are eager to learn and look forward to new adventures, friendships, and opportunities that the fall brings. 

Yet, let’s take a moment to reflect on the fact that for many of the youth that we support, this can be a trying time. With limited or no access to income and scarce resources and family support, preparing for a successful school year can feel like a daunting task. 

At Covenant House Vancouver (CHV), we believe that education is a key to empowerment and transformation. We understand that the path to knowledge can be the path to a brighter future. That’s why we’re reaching out to our incredible community for support. 

With so many youth interested in going back to school and furthering their education, CHV could really use your help in equipping these individuals with the supplies they need to help them work towards their dreams. 

Imagine the impact of a brand-new backpack on a young person’s confidence, the potential unlocked by a set of fresh notebooks, or the inspiration sparked by a collection of pens waiting to write their stories. 

How You Can Help: 

Below is a list of supplies and items we are looking for to help support youth in our care: 

  • Backpacks 
  • Notebooks (coiled) 
  • Day planners 
  • Calendar whiteboards 
  • Power banks (portable device chargers) 
  • Phone chargers (cords) 
  • Ear buds 
  • Ball point pens 
  • Water bottles 
  • Runners (sizes 9 thru 13) 
  • Umbrellas 
  • Sport shorts (size 32 & 34) 

As we bid adieu to the sun-soaked days of summer, let’s not forget the difference we can make in the lives of these young individuals. Your contribution, no matter how small, can ignite a flame of inspiration that lights up their educational journey. 

Visit our Gift-in-Kind page to learn more about how you can support our back-to-school initiative and make a meaningful impact in the lives of youth in need. Together, we’re turning dreams into reality, one backpack at a time. 

Let’s harness the power of education and create a brighter future for all.
