Our mission is to create a peer experience for people just like you… people who are looking to fill the GAPs in their life and their community in a MEANINGFUL way. Whether it be getting out more, getting connected, developing skills, giving back or learning a thing or two (more).

This year we have introduced a brand new event, Oktoberfest. This event will be held downtown at The Kelowna Forum on Friday October 13th, 2017 with all proceeds going to charity.
Oktoberfest will feature German style food, music and entertainment, and most importantly; beer. Proceeds from this event will fund the Youth Initiative Grants, a partnership with United Way CSO and the Central Okanagan Foundation.
