You belong in nature and so do I.

I have had a phenomenal experience with Power To Be. With only 1% of my vision remaining, I felt that I couldn’t do many of the outdoor activities that I had always enjoyed. However, Power To Be has helped me to reclaim my relationship with the outdoors and has been a big part of my journey of self-discovery in trying to navigate life without vision.

Hooksum Outdoor School: An immersive learning adventure

Recently, I was very fortunate to be sent by Power To Be to Hooksum Outdoor School to receive additional waterfront and surf lifeguard training in arguably one of the most beautiful places on the island. Hooksum offers a completely immersive experience, unlike anything you can experience in the city. At Power To Be we value the power that experiential education has to provide, and the rich learning experience that contributes to the retention of knowledge. Hooksum outdoor school provides just that.

Ride For The Future: A 500km journey that gives back

Ride for the Future is a 500km bicycle ride from the top of Vancouver Island to the bottom, that spans over 24 and 36 hours and that raises over $50,000 in support of our programs. This year, the ride was completed by four riders, with two of them riding over two days (sub 36 hours) and two of them riding straight through the night and completing in under 24 hours.

Volunteer Spotlight: Jackie

Jackie approached us 5 years ago to get involved as a volunteer with Power To Be and since then has naturally played many integral roles, not only as a volunteer but as an ambassador for the organization.

Go Explore: Agate Park

Greater Victoria boasts many beaches; some sandy, some rocky, some busy, some not. Agate Park is one of the multiple access points for Cordova Bay Beach and is typically a peaceful spot in nature.

The echo of laughter filled Westwood Lake Park during an action-packed day of kayaking, trail riding, and paddleboarding. Power To Be and SUP4ALL teamed up with the Nanaimo Child Development Centre to deliver their very first day of outdoor play.
