VM Youth

The VM Youth Program motivates, assists and engages Manitoba youth 13 - 30 years of age to become involved in their communities through a commitment to volunteerism.

Since its inception in 2005, the youth program has proven itself a valuable resource to youth, agencies, educators, parents, and communities throughout the province by:

  • Raising awareness in youth and young adults about the value of volunteerism as a means of exploring and preparing for employment while gaining meaningful life experiences, resulting in a deeper connection and commitment to their communities and roles as engaged citizens, and
  • Educating agencies and communities about how to best involve youth and young adults in a significant manner in order to address the need of continuity of volunteer resources in organizations and communities.

The VM Youth Program has proven successful at engaging youth and multiple stakeholders through its three main areas of focus: the website, the outreach program and engaging the next generation of youth leaders.

Thanks to the generous support of Canada Life we reach thousands of youth each year!
