Thank you for giving back to so many members of the community! If you are looking to spread some extra holiday cheer (there’s still time!) contact your local community organizations to see how you can help!
We are grateful to report that we have raised $2,000 to be matched by Unilever for Elevation Outdoors during our team tennis charity event! We can't wait to hold the event again next year and hopefully open it to the general public for even more fun and money raised.
We are very thankful for the support from the Okanagan Mission Tennis Club for selecting Elevation Outdoors to support with their year end tournament. With @unilvercanada matching all the funds raised up to $5,000 this is an amazing example of how local efforts can leverage corporate support to really drive a positive impact in our community!

Our own Miranda Birkbeck visited the team at KelownaNow for #NationalVolunteerWeek to share the work she does in the community with Elevation Outdoors and how Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union supports our employees and their commitment to community.
We wanted to say a big Thank You to the team at Do Some Good. The new remote/digital volunteer options that you have created has been a great help. We posted that we were looking for a social media volunteer and have been able to secure a great volunteer based in the Prairies. Since then we have continued to receive interest from others located across the country as well. Nice work on adapting to the needs of today's non profits, and congrats on expanding your reach into other regions! For any other organizations looking for support in roles like this, try it out as it allows you to access people from all across the country, not just here in the Okanagan.
Less video games, more meaningful conversations changes lives of at risk youth

Supporting the needs of the next generation of Kelowna’s vulnerable and at risk youth is a challenge that volunteers at Elevation Outdoors commit to daily. Elevation Outdoors gives approximately 75 vulnerable youth each year, the chance at a brighter future. Youth ages 12-18 years participate in a various challenging outdoor programs such as sailing, mountain biking, snowboarding and rock climbing. These programs are designed to mentor vulnerable youth through sport skills, life concepts, steer them out of harms way and into good health by helping them gain more self-confidence, learn about job and career opportunities in sports and develop lasting friendships.

Less video games and more self-confidence is the story of young man who completed all four programs. This young man was addicted to video games, not physically active and had low self-esteem. After completing the programs he is much healthier, he has lost weight and purchased his own bike. He is volunteering as a bike mechanic and his self-esteem is through the roof. He loved the program so much he’s returned to the mountain bike program a second time around to further develop his skills and pursue his new passion.

Elevation Outdoors has had many siblings enroll in their programs. “To see the bond between two brothers grow is beautiful”, says Mike Greer, Executive Director at Elevation Outdoors. A family of four siblings in foster care went through the program. Two of the brother’s from the family enrolled in the bike program with each other; the eldest brother told Elevation Outdoors that due to the program his relationship with his brother improved. The brothers now share a passion, have more to talk about and have become closer. A bond that can only grow stronger.

Elevation Outdoors offers many exciting mentorship and sponsorship opportunities. Change a life. Be a leader. To learn more and see volunteer opportunities visit https://www.volinspire.com/organization/elevati...
