Wilderness School cohort explores the Southern Gulf Islands

This three-part series highlights the 2015 Wilderness School expeditions, as youth take on kayaking, weather and a solo experience. Spanning from five hours in year one, eight hours in year two to overnight in year three, solos with Power To Be provide a space for youth to test their independence and outdoor skills while developing a comfort in nature and with themselves.  

Community tees off in support of Power To Be

A perfect day on the links was a record-breaking success for Power To Golf, in support of Power To Be. The ninth annual tournament brought out notable leaders from Victoria and Vancouver’s business and sports communities. Together they raised $261,000 for Power To Be’s accessible outdoor recreation programs.

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.

Moving past barriers to get active outside

Surrounded by more than 1,000 people at the No Barriers Summit, Program Manager Carinna Kenigsberg couldn’t help but think of the feeling she gets from being on program with Power To Be.

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.
