You're never too young to make a difference

Schools and youth

You’re never too young to make a difference. Come to think of it, we often see that it’s some of the smallest supporters who have the biggest hearts—not to mention some pretty impressive ingenuity. Over the years, countless kids have inspired us with their compassion and creativity in helping other kids in need. They’ve hosted pajama days, shaved their heads, cut their hair and done a whole lot more. And because their imaginations and hearts have no limits, neither do ours when it comes to enhancing children’s health care.

There are a number of ways that kids and teens can support our work.

Join an event

You can take part in our annual Jeans Day or, run or walk at RBC Race for the Kids—the largest family fun run in Vancouver. Join either event on your own or start a team for your school.

Plan your own event

Bake sales. Bottle drives. Pajama days. Movie nights. Those are just a few ways that kids have raised money for our hospital. We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Get started now

Birthday donations

Chinese Young Ambassador Program

Our Young Ambassadors are youth between the ages of 8-21 who fundraise within the Chinese community. Through various fundraising and leadership development opportunities, members have learned important life lessons while participating in community initiatives that help to sharpen their communication, team-building and project management skills.
