WE BELIEVE IN WORKING TOGETHER TO BUILD A STRONGER COMMUNITY.
Since our first programs in 2008 we have been able to positively impact the lives hundreds young people in our community. It takes a village to raise a child and we are proud to play a part in creating opportunities for young people to learn about themselves and life while exploring new activities. We have been serving the Kelowna and broader Okanagan community since 2007. With the help of our sponsors and the dedication from our volunteers we have been helping create a stronger more connected community full of passionate young people.
Watch the video to hear first hand from one of our former participants about the impact we can have on the lives of our participants.
Outdoor recreation has been shown to have a positive impact on a young person’s self-confidence, creativity, and ability to handle stressful situations and we have seen these results first hand. Each program we run makes an impact in our community as it creates healthier, happier and more resilient youth and helps them be better prepared for life ahead. Read below to hear what some of the youth, parents, and support workers have to say about the impact we have on the young people in our programs.
"Thank You Tori and Other Elevation Outdoor Leaders...For everything u did with My Son ****. He enjoyed himself so much. I am so glad he was able to be apart of such a wonderful experience. When his Native Advisor (Tony) from School Approached me on it I was so Appreciated that **** was going to be given this opportunity to take part in something I would never be able to afford. We enjoyed watching the DVD together and everyone looked like they had an Amazing Time." Thank YouC S
"Elevation outdoors, provides great opportunities for our kids in the community. One youth in particular that has gone through the winter and Spring program, has come out with many positive changes. This youth has a NEW connection to something he loves (snowboarding). With that connection came a more positive attitude and motivation to achieve other things in life. I personally thank Elevation and their crew for all the effort and dedication they put into our youth in the community. In my opinion this program has helped to mold him into the man he is today. Thank you for helping build this connection to snowboarding, it has made a huge difference in his life."
"Make sure you tell your team I said "GREAT JOB"!!! I look forward to seeing the difference your team makes with "future" youth."
