Volunteer for VRCG summer projects this summer!

🙂 Hope this e-mail finds you well.
On behalf of VRCG, I warmly welcome you and hope you have a great experience climbing with us or finding lots of climbing partners through us.
9 years ago when I was 25, I started VRCG in my spare time to help myself find climbing partners as I want to climb 7 days a week. Shortly after I gained so many climbing partners and I’m good for life and ready to quit.
Seeing that VRCG has benefited so many people around and beyond me is what motivated me to keep VRCG running as a volunteer-powered not for profit society.
In the past 9 years, I did my best to make VRCG a welcoming platform for maximum climbing, friendships and experience of their lifetime for both local Vancouverites and international travellers.
9 years is a long time and life really does get busier as you get older with work and other things.
I’m very thankful for all the individuals who volunteer their time, effort and funds in many different ways.
Many people have said Vancouver is a hard place to make friends, not because people are busy, but a lack of generosity, kindness and curiosity. It’s inspiring to meet all these individuals stepping up to give back. They are the community builders.

This summer, same as past summers, we are looking for volunteers for our 3 projects. Volunteering is a great way to learn more about Squamish climbing, make great friends and create lifetime memories.
