Community plays an important role in staying engaged and connected right now. Although spending time physically together may be limited, remember to reach out to those in your community however you can. Power To Be supports those facing a barrier by fostering an inclusive, engaged community that is grounded in shared experience and shared values of connection, nature, and belonging.
Thank you Phillips Brewing and Malting Co. for your ongoing support. When asked why they support Power To Be, Matt Phillips says, “Power to Be is a great resource in our community for those who need support in accessing nature. Phillips Brewing Co admires this effort and is proud to support the fantastic programs.”
Over the last 20 years, Helijet has generously supported Power To Be by donating auction prizes, sharing awareness through social accounts and in-terminal, providing flights for staff and participants, sponsoring and competing in Power To Be’s signature fundraising events and spreading awareness through their branded Power To Be courtesy shuttles and aircrafts. Helijet started their first collaboration with Power To Be almost 20 years ago – by lending an old canoe for an expedition that Power To Be’s founder, Tim Cormode, was facilitating.
After months of anticipation, the team at Power To Be is stoked to unveil our new yurt. Participants were invited to check out the finished project at our Holiday Have-A-Go December 8, 2019. The new structure, tucked in among the trees of our campsite and trails, was built as part of a larger plan to open more accessible programming spaces at our Prospect Lake site.
"This past summer I was lucky enough to participate in a Students On Ice expedition. I spent two weeks on a ship in western Greenland and the eastern Canadian Arctic learning about climate change, Sustainable Development Goals, ocean literacy, blue economy, healthy communities, and so much more."
Power To Be has been supported by Peninsula Co-op since 2007. Over the years, that support has amounted to over $155,000 donated to support our inclusive programs.

About forty-five minutes outside downtown Victoria is an explorer’s paradise: East Sooke Park. The park is over 14 square kilometers and features beaches, 50 kilometers of trails, viewpoints, and lots of great places for a picnic.
A visionary, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist. Ted Rogers was one of kind. From his unstoppable ambition to his unique ability to connect with people, Ted Rogers pathed the way for so many in his journey to success. To honour the late Ted Rogers, the Ted Rogers Scholarship was generously created by the Rogers’ family and launched in 2017 to carry on Ted’s values and legacy. Ted Rogers and his legacy continues to inspire our work at Power To Be every day. The differences made in the lives of so many because of Ted Roger’s work is truly inspiring and we at Power To Be will continue to honour his legacy in everything that we do.
