The value of giving back

For Summit Leadership Program participants Sadie and Shaheen, it’s all about learning how to give back. Teamed up with four of their peers, the pair helped navigate a young man in a trail rider to China Beach.

From garden to plate

With the sun shinning and the worms wriggling, Power To Be Adaptive Recreationparticipants dug into the gardens at Coast Collective Art Centre for a day of connecting to the land and sharing a meal together.

Nature transforms

I became involved with Power To Be in Vancouver in 2004, when I was nine years old. There are three very specific memories that I can recall quite clearly that stick out as almost surreal among all the great memories I have with Power To Be's Adaptive Recreation program. 

Growing up with Power To be

It can be as simple as watching a blade of grass or as powerful as kayaking through the salty sea. In those moments, a connection grows between nature, self and others. It’s moments like that keep drawing Gaby Emmett back to Power To Be.

Power To Be launches Summit Leadership Program

A new year brings new beginnings for Power To Be. This January Wilderness School is kicking off the Summit Leadership Program* – an eight-week experience designed to reengage Wilderness School graduates with curriculum aimed at increasing their outdoor knowledge and leadership skills.

Happy holidays from Power To Be

What a wonderful year 2014 has been for Power To Be. With cherished program memories, new opportunities in nature, and record-breaking fundraising successes, the year is definitely one worth celebrating. 

Taking confidence to new heights

Mark Miller knows the power of perception. It’s the fluid line between what you think you can and cannot do. A life-long adventure seeker, Mark joined Power To Be at WildPlay Element Park to challenge the perception of what was possible – for him and potentially others.

Bringing nature to the masses

It was the perfect campsite. Roasting marshmallows by the fire, a cozy tent and nature all around. You might have looked twice though when you realized the whole scene was rolling away.

Celebrating philanthropy

The culture of philanthropy created by our supporters is worthy of celebration. As a nod to the contributions of many, Power To Be is honoured to share the accomplishments and contributions of one of our cornerstone supporters, Rogers Communications, and its founder Ted Rogers.
