Why CONNECT with YWiB SFU?

CONNECT is a new philanthropy based initiative that utilizes YWiB SFU’s resources to make
an impact in our immediate community. Through workshops, partnerships, and events,
CONNECT will create long lasting relationships between YWiB SFU and community based
non-profit organizations.


Program Objectives

• Provides a platform for students to create long lasting relationships each other and an overall sense of family within the program.

• Facilitates connections between students and the community through a series of partnerships with like minded non-profit organizations.

• Creates an environment where students can gain and develop leadership and time management skills, as well as gain a passion for philanthropy.

 

 

Program Structure

YWIB is bringing back the CONNECT program in the spring semester with a focus on philanthropy. It will be 20 members that will be able to mingle, make new friends and get involved giving back in their community together. The program will focus on volunteering in a positive environment and giving members connections in the areas of philanthropy they are passionate about.  

Students will learn to network with a variety of individuals, develop their leadership skills, and ultimately, put the skills the have learned in the classroom to use in the real world. YWiB CONNECT will open the door for students to see the value in philanthropic initiatives and integrate it into their everyday lives or future plans.
