Dear Valued Community of Power To Be,

Power To Be understands that we all need to work together to continue to limit transmission of COVID 19, protect those living with health considerations, and prevent community transmission.

In compliance with British Columbia’s Health Authority guidelines, Power To Be has developed a phased approach to in-person nature-based programs. As time unfolds, we will remain nimble and align our offerings with shifting public health orders. With safety at the forefront, we are looking forward to adventuring with our community both in-person and virtually in 2022. Here is an update on what you can expect in our two regions.

What to Expect in Vancouver

Open Adventure

Intake for Inclusive Adventure Participants is now open! To register for one of our virtual information sessions, and to learn about the next steps, please reach out to vancouverprograms@powertobe.ca.

Community Groups

We currently have a waitlist for Community Group involvement. We will be reassessing capacity for new intakes of Community Groups in 2023 but do not anticipate any movement for the next year. If you are a Community Group that would like to be added to the waitlist, or if you have any questions, please reach out to vancouvercommunityprograms@powertobe.ca.

Sincerely,

The Power To Be Program Team
