Finding balance in nature

The reflection of sun on water catches my eye, distracting me from the sneaky ambush headed my way. I spin my head around and I’m immediately drenched with a spray of water from the splash of a paddle as laughter echoes across the lake.

Celebrating survivorship

Brought together by a common thread, their journey had begun many years ago. They are survivors and Power to Be was lucky enough to organize a trip for eight amazing youth through the Teen Adventures – A Spirit Quest program supported by Balding for Dollars and the Oncology/Hematology/BMT Program at BC Children’s Hospital.

First volunteer overnight training a success

Victoria-based volunteers came together for Power To Be’s first volunteer overnight training. Volunteer trainings are a common practice at Power To Be, although training with an overnight component was something new this year.

Wilderness School grad wins United Way volunteer award

Power To Be’s Wilderness School helped bring out the best in Shaheen Rabie, and since graduating from the program, the 17-year-old has committed his time and energy to helping other youth in the community build confidence and connection through adventures in nature. His efforts have garnered him a United Way Youth Now Volunteer Award.

Nature and history mingle on weekend trek

Just north of the world famous West Coast Trail lays the relatively unknown Cape Beale Trail. Historically it was part of the same telegraph line and lifesaving trail that set the foundation for the West Coast Trail. The Cape Beale Trail, however, although much shorter in distance, provides its own challenges with infrequent maintenance and deep mud.
