Partner With A Team
Great Exposure For Your NGO!
Calling all “philanthropists, volunteers, passionate and compassionate world changers, advocates for humanity, trail blazers in social justice, do-gooders, and seriously committed lovers of our planet and the people in it!”
Every year in September, we invite high school teams from the Okanagan to take the Sustainable Development Challenge. They choose a cause they are passionate about and work with a team of their peers to create an innovative, sustainable project that will tackle one of the 17 UN’s Global Goals. The top projects will be presented in front of a community audience in February at the Sustainable Development Challenge and our panel of expert judges will choose the winning team project to receive $5000 to make it a reality. BUT… there is a catch! The student teams have to be partnered with a locally based organization that has a registered charitable designation. Teams work alongside the organization- (that’s YOU!) and gain knowledge and expertise and an understanding of your aligned goals. They find a “Gap in your Group” and fill it with their amazing, youthful, unbridled passionate plan! If their project wins the challenge, YOUR organization receives the $5000 prize money to make the project happen! If you are interested in investing in the ideas of our young people and partnering and supporting them through this process please contact us!
