Lions Proudly Support Squamish Youth Week
2017 April 7
Youth Week is a provincial celebration of youth held annually during the first week of May. The intention is to build a strong connection between young people and their communities and to profile the issues, accomplishments, and diversity of youth across the province.
Squamish is proud to be a part of BC Youth week. Since 2015, Big Brothers Big Sisters Sea to Sky has collaborated with District of Squamish Recreation Services, the Squamish Youth Center and local youth (who form our Teen Advisory and Action Group – T.A.A.G) to provide activities and events for youth during this week-long celebration of our communities’ youth.
On Thursday May 4th, as part of Squamish Youth Week (May 1–7), the community of Squamish will CELEBRATE the youth of our community by awarding five (5) unique awards. These awards will represent key areas that are not recognized anywhere else in our community. We have asked businesses in our community to step up and sponsor the awards to add credibility and merit to each award. The Squamish Lions is proud to be one of these community partners that has stepped up since the inception.
