The YES Program also includes the newly formed Surfrider Youth Club at the Ucluelet Secondary School. Surfrider Foundation launched the Youth Network in 2008 in response to overwhelming interest across the country from young people that wished to become more involved in Surfrider Foundation’s activities on their campuses and communities. The program has grown to a wide range of activities including organizing school clubs and initiatives based on project-based learning. These range from beach clean ups to eliminating single use plastics.
The USS Surfrider Youth Club is running the following initiatives:
- Beach Cleans
- Waste free smoothies
- Waste free lunch campaign
- Get in touch with the Youth Coordinator to learn more about the Surfrider Youth Club and how you can support and/or get involved!
Thank you to Live to Surf in Tofino, Vans Canada, as well as Parks and Recreation at the District of Ucluelet for sponsoring the Surfrider Youth Club!
