Power Pages Distribution Party

Volunteer Category: 
Youth

Help us get Power Pages into communities! The latest edition of Power Pages magazine has been printed, and now we need to mail it out and get it into the hands of youth in and from care across BC. Power Pages has information about resources, what the Fed does, and most importantly, artwork, stories, photography and lots more by young people. 

The volunteer work itself is pretty simple (stuffing, labelling and stamping envelopes), but we listen to music and hang out and make it as fun as we can!

Deadline to Apply: November 14, 2019

Date: Monday, November 18, 2019 from 10 AM to 4 PM
