Get Out There!

Get Out There aims to be an online hub for information
about civic, social, and environmental opportunities in Greater Vancouver for young adults aged 16-29.

Sound amazing? It's almost a reality, but we need your help! Read on to see how your expert knowledge can help thousands of young people.

  • Youth are entering a world of climate change, resource scarcity, demographic shifts, and a labour market in which "jobs will be rapidly created, altered, or made obsolete by technology". (ref)
     

  • It's becoming more challeng-ing for youth to discover what role they can play in society that will give them a sense of purpose, community, and security, while working toward a more sustainable future.
     

  • This resource allows youth to:

    • explore opportunities they didn't know existed

    • make sense of changing labour trends

    • connect with organizations, ideas and individuals that are creating positive impact

  • You're a dedicated community member, student, mentor, leader, or employee.
     

  • Someone admires you and sent you here because they know that you hold valuable information and lived experience.
     

  • You know about one or several awesome programs, grants, opportunities, and/or useful resources.
     

  • You can spare 5 minutes to help thousands of young people.
