Our Youth On Water Program: Your monthly donation will help us to foster a conservation ethic in the leaders of tomorrow
Here at SWCC we are extremely proud of the Youth On Water (YOW!) Program. What began in 2009 as a small project with six youth in Hazelton, has become a extremely successful regional outdoor recreation program.
Today YOW! has over 100 participants from six communities and is empowering regional youth through on-the-water activities that connect them with local rivers, a sense of adventure, environmental awareness and technical raft guide training.
The YOW! program is free to participants because of the generosity and passion of our community. Your monthly donation makes all the difference. SWCC’s goal is that eventually our entire Youth On Water Program can be run in collaboration with Tides Canada Initiatives solely through our monthly supporters. The future is YOW!
