Sometimes with a collaboration, all the moving pieces fit perfectly together, to create something truly beautiful. For 2021's edition of Sandpiper's annual holiday card, Power To Be participant, Adam, created a beautiful design that aligned with Sandpiper's vision. The card was inspired by the word 'connection', and the result was amazing.
Students from Camosun College's Hospitality Management program fundraised for Power To Be with purpose and passion. They organized an evening of luxury with a wilderness boat tour, a three-course meal and a silent auction.
Each April, a group of 36 skiers come together for a backcountry cat ski trip in support of Power To Be, based out of the Mustang Powder lodge. This epic weekend boasts big powder, amazing food, and access to an outstanding mountain landscape.
Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do. In celebration of National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we would like to express immense gratitude for our dedicated community of volunteers.
Last month we partnered with Helicopters Without Borders (HWB), a grassroots charity in Vancouver, to donate paddleboards to Kitasoo First Nation. The paddleboards will be used this summer, amongst the whole community, so that everyone in the Kitasoo Nation has an opportunity to explore nature.

The Ted Rogers Scholarships have benefitted nearly 1,800 across Canada, helping to remove financial barriers to post-secondary education and helping youth achieve their highest potential. By working closely with youth service providers across Canada to make sure that the program is as accessible and as barrier free as possible, Rogers has created a successful program with broad impact.
Power To Be's initiatives are guided by the philosophy and approaches we carry in moving our purpose and vision forward. By working with partners, we are able to build up our team, our participants and our community collectively.
At Power To Be, we believe everyone belongs in nature, without barriers and without limitations. We are thrilled with the progress being made on our new Prospect Lake build, which will provide a permanent home for our participants, volunteers, and staff to thrive in an accessible and welcoming environment.
If COVID has taught us anything it has been that we are not alone, and together we can reflect, revamp and redesign. As we all strive to “build back better” we realize how valuable and important it is to wade in the unknown waters with others in a similar field. We all have the vision to provide great outdoor opportunities for people, families, and groups to connect to nature, learn new skills, and be apart of a wider community.
