What's Happening in SYC Tri-Cities?
Established in the Fall of 2015, SYC Tri-Cities has over 30 high school and university students enrolled as a member. As one of SYC’s newly established regions, SYC Tri-Cities is committed to promoting the presence of SYC in the Tri-Cities and connecting youth with sustainability-focused opportunities.
In 2016, SYC Tri-Cities held information sessions during Earth Week at Pinetree Secondary School to inform students about SYC and to increase member presence. As well, a community garden plot was created at the Inspiration Garden at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam to allow members to plant organic vegetables in their local community. In addition, SYC Tri-Cities participated in the Salmon Leave Home event hosted by the Hoy-Scott Watershed Society at Hoy Creek.
SYC Tri-Cities is currently looking to be relaunched for 2018/19 school year. If you are looking for leadership opportunities and are passionate about promoting sustainability around the Tri-Cities area, please apply to one of the Steering Committee Executive positions.
