Youth In Action Program

Peace Arch Hospital Foundation launched the Youth In Action Program in April of 2021 with the goal of supporting grades 10-12 students in South Surrey and White Rock who want to make a difference, get hands-on volunteer experience, and get involved with helping to make their community the healthiest possible. 

Through the program, youth take part in a variety of volunteer experiences, healthy lifestyle activities and learn how to organize, plan, and execute a fundraising event. They will also learn about different careers, job skills, and organizations from guest speakers at monthly meetings.

Thank You to Our Event Sponsors!
