What is the 150 Reasons Youth Project?
This year Volunteer Victoria launched the 150 Reasons Youth Project. This project is a series of 12 events and/or initiatives designed and planned by a youth steering committee comprised of youth between the ages of 15-29.
The 150 Reasons Youth Project is intended to facilitate youth leadership and community engagement as we commemorate Canada’s 150th year. Each committee member will receive Volunteer Management and Career-related training to better prepare them for the projects they will be undertaking.

- Participating in the planning and delivery of at least 2 events throughout 2017
