Why we created Get Out There
"Damn. I wish I had known about that..."
Our city is full of amazing programs, resources, and organizations... if you know where to look. In this era of information overload and niche organizational jargon, it can be almost impossible to stumble upon opportunities in areas of interest outside your own.
The idea for Get Out There started after talking to students and working young professionals. We found that many didn't know about things like project grants, programs for which they would be a great fit, or careers in civic, social, and environmental spaces. I thought “wouldn’t it be a great idea to have all these things in one place?”
The goal is to have Get Out There on the radar of every young person and education provider in Vancouver, before spreading across Canada.
