Step Up Youth Volunteer Ambassadors


Published on

Step Up Youth Volunteer Ambassadors (SUYVA) program is Volunteer MBC's youth ambassador program managed completely by a dynamic group of high school students. The program lead by these Step Up Ambassadors is all about youth engagement through volunteering. We want to increase the number of student volunteers all throughout the Region of Peel (Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon), and we believe that your leadership will be instrumental with this effort. SUYVA's efforts also extend to making connections with the post-secondary students for collaborative initiatives.

By organizing events, volunteering with friends and inspiring peers to do something positive, the Step Up Ambassadors WILL make a difference in the world.
