340 LOCAL YOUTH EMPOWERED, RAISING FUNDS THAT HAVE SENT OVER 220 GIRLS TO HIGH SCHOOL IN GHANA
Through our Marketing for Change program, we have empowered over 340 local Vancouver youth to become effective change makers through marketing, fundraising and leadership. Our local students have applied the skills they learned and worked in teams to fundraise enough to send over 160 girls in Northern Ghana to high school.
60 YOUTH EMPOWERED AS LEADERS
Since 2014, Create Change has empowered 60 local youth to become effective leaders through our Marketing for Change program, where they learned to lead a team of their peers to implement marketing and fundraising initiatives for girls’ education in Ghana. From learning to run a meeting, to holding team members accountable, to inspiring peers not to give up in the face of failure, these students have learned effective leadership in a real-world setting.
14 YOUTH TRAINED TO RUN OUR OPERATIONS
Through various youth programs, we have trained 12 local youth to help lead our Canadian operation in the areas of communication, donor engagement, coaching, event planning and public speaking. These young change-makers have been an effective force in the organization, leading us one step closer to operational sustainability.
