We understand that the environment in which young people build trust and are taught in is as vitally important as the content of the lessons. The program involves a heavy focus on self reflection and revelation, individual purpose, personal value systems, areas of interest, dream and vision building, self talk and daily disciplines.
Our outdoors program utilizes many of British Columbia’s scenic locations to create opportunities for young people to get out of the city and experience the open air. Our aim is to use Vancouver’s surrounding natural beauty to provide young people with guided activities to get outside and experience new environments.
The HCMC Skills Program was developed to help young people who have left school early, young carers (teen parents) and marginalized youth to help them build good character and job preparation. HCMC Alliance Skills Program is made up of two parts: character building and career qualification/preparation.
This program gives an opportunity for work experience for young people, so they are ready to go into the workplace with necessary starting skills. After completing this program, many of the young people will have the skills and character required to set them on their way to working in their area of interest.
Our Community Action opportunities take the youth, young professionals and volunteers to the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver to help feed vulnerable people. This deed not only feeds the people, it allows those who come with us to serve people in the community through the gift of giving back, with not only a meal but also the gift of conversation and a smile.
