BC first event – Community Clean Up

Our first event to celebrate Canada 150 in British Columbia with UCC Youth Engaging Youth project took place on Saturday, May 27th in Vancouver.

EVENT TOPIC: Environment.

Youth from Trout Lake Community Center made two good things at once – they cleaned park territory from garbage and found lost health card of somebody from Saskatoon. The card will be returned to its owner.

Ukrainian Canadian Congress sponsored juice & pizza for participants.

Ось і закінчилась моя робота на літо - робота над проектом Youth Engaging Youth до 150-річчя Канади. Дванадцять прекрасних заходів - чудових ініціатив різних communities в Британській Колумбії, які ми (Ukrainian Canadian Congress) підтримали завдяки уряду Канади і спромоглися організувати протягом такого короткого проміжку часу. Останній з цих заходів, "Miss Wheelchair Canada", пройшов вчора. Це був колосальний досвід нетворкінгу, роботи в команді, здобуття нових навичок (так я стала режисером, маркетологом, бухгалтером і логістом :) ) І я вдячна усім партнерам-організаторам, з якими ми разом пройшли цей шлях, перевиконавши план, а також чудовим волонтерам, завдяки яким було легше та веселіше, українській спільноті Ванкуверу, яка особливо влилася в процес, і всім-всім-всім, які тим чи іншим чином були поряд! Цей досвід був challenging, часто доводилося швидко діяти і вирішувати різні питання та проблеми. Але ми справилися! ВСІ ми. Я пишаюся, що стала частиною тієї самої, відомої на увесь світ, української діаспори, ставши членом прекрасної команди UCC. І це завершення, але ще й новий початок. А який - розкажу згодом. А поки, завітайте на наш вебсайт, подивитися, яка колосальна робота була пророблена по п'ятьох провінціях та підписуйтеся на новини: www.150.ucc.ca #YEY150 #Canada150

Today I had a fabulous meeting with James and Sean, filmmakers from Hammer & Tong. We agreed on hosting amazing #YEY150 event devoted to interaction of reality and virtual reality. A lot of creative ideas were produced during discussion of the agenda. Coming up at the end of July, don't miss a chance to look into the future ;)
