Youth4Action

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Are you a high-school student in Metro Vancouver looking to make a difference in your school community?

​​Metro Vancouver’s Youth4Action Programs support high school youth to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to inspire sustainability and livability.

Through place-based inquiry-learning, leadership, innovation, and collaborative action, Youth4Action celebrates the unique ability of youth as leaders to influence sustainability at school and beyond. Participating youth are introduced to a diverse regional network of sustainability champions, including students, teachers, and other youth leadership supporters.

Youth4Action is committed to the principles of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. We value the leadership of people who have been historically marginalized and encourage racialized, Indigenous, persons with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQA12+ community to apply to be part of the Youth4Action Regional Ambassador Program.

Inspiring Sustainability in Metro Vancouver Schools and Beyond

Youth4Action supports participating youth through active and collaborative learning and leadership programs to make an impact for a more equitable, prosperous, and sustainable region and planet.​
