    Youth Outdoor Recreation Society

    This position supports Youth Outdoor Recreation Society

    Our Mission The Purpose(s) Of The Society Is/Are: To provide affordable programs for mainstream and at-risk youth in the Okanagan to participate in outdoor recreation, education and leadership activities. These activities will provide the platform (or opportunity) to help youth develop and nurture their physical, emotional and intellectual selves by enhancing their relationship and confidence in the surrounding natural environment. ​ To provide accessible pro-social and therapeutic recreational programming to reduce the isolation of high-risk and marginalized youth and promote community integration, relationship building, and life-skills development. ​ To provide therapeutic and recreational expertise that acknowledges the mind-body connection for optimal health and reinforces the value of active engagement in natural contexts for improved physical, mental, and emotional wellness.

    The Youth Outdoor Recreation Society is a local not-for-profit that subsidizes youth programming in our local community. Y.O.R.S. aims to work with local businesses, residents, and the schools to make outdoor recreation and education accessible financially to all students in the Okanagan-Skaha School District. Through kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, biking, and camping skills, children learn incredible hard skills and develop life-changing soft skills, and every child deserves that chance.
