Take a Hike Youth at Risk Foundation
LIFT Philanthropy Partners is working with the Take a Hike Youth at Risk Foundation to expand its program to reach more at-risk youth across Canada.
Over the next three years, we are providing professional services, management expertise, and other in-kind contributions to further develop Take a Hike’s operations, enhance its measurement practices, and improve its financial sustainability. Together, we are developing the tools and resources we need to replicate Take a Hike in communities throughout British Columbia and Canada.
Take a Hike partners with the Vancouver School Board to operate an alternative education program for at-risk youth at John Oliver Secondary School. Take a Hike provides a unique combination of adventure-based learning, academics, counselling, and community involvement for youth with few remaining options and enables them to positively change their lives.
By the end of our three-year partnership with Take a Hike, its program will be offered in at least two new B.C. communities and will be poised for further expansion across the country.
Stay tuned for more information on how our partnership develops.
