Creating a world we want to live in

Volunteers with a passion for supporting youth are the backbone of the Power of Hope experience.

About our Volunteers!

We try to bring in 5 new volunteers each camp. Often our returning and new volunteers have had extensive PYE training in the Creative Community model. What is PYE Training? We also open up 2 volunteer spots each camp for creatively driven youth mentors (age 22 and up) who have previously attended a Power of Hope camp as a youth themselves.

We value having a strong team that a multifaceted group of youth can see themselves reflected in and connect with. We welcome racial diversity, gender diversity, intersectionality and diversity of discipline and opinion. If you come from a diverse, intersectional background, we’d love to know. While we are an arts based camp we also welcome other skill sets and passions.

We are often on the look out for a certified lifeguards and a registered nurse. Please let us know if you have these qualifications!

There are other ways to support Power of Hope too:
1. Join the Core Support Circle.
2. Consider donating items on our wish list
3. Volunteer at a Fundraiser.

We’ve got yearly fundraisers in Victoria in January, Cortes Island in July, and in Vancouver in November. Please email camp@powerofhope.ca to express interest.
