Team Climb and Conquer @ Richmond Oval teaching youth climbing
Founded by volunteers from VRCG in 2011, Climb and Conquer Society Canada is a registered charity (85092 7237 RR0001) run entirely by volunteers located in Vancouver, BC. Our MISSION is to support youth (age 4-18) from disadvantaged backgrounds to build healthy self-esteem and relationships through rock climbing and caring mentorships.
We run 2 programs:
- 3 Monthly Climbing Drop-ins (Vancouver, Richmond and Coquitlam) where volunteers teach youth (and their parents) in climbing and mentor them in healthy exercise habit and skills with relationship, problem solving, stress management and team-building. Admissions range from $5-12. (Full subsidy for participants in financial needs or by referral). No prior climbing experiences nor gear needed.
- Financial Subsidy. We subsidize passes, memberships, youth programs, camps, etc. to make sure families can access CNC programs despite financial or other disadvantaged barriers.
As of April 2014, $10,563 have been spent on participants. Hear from one of our participants. Video For current news and sessions, go to Facebook Contact: Joe Wong 7789997104
