YVC! and the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre

Join us for a Christmas community dinner at Samuel Genest School. Young Voices Can! and the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre will be serving families in the community at a  festive dinner on Thursday, December 6th, 2018.

Our volunteers, youth and board members, will be greeting and registering guests, setting up and cleaning up, refreshing the coffee/snack tables, doing craft activities for children, serving dinner, handing out surveys and gifts to families, as well as taking photos of the event. 

The holiday dinner will take place in Samuel-Genest Catholic College, located at 704 Carsons Rd, Ottawa, ON K1K 2H, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. If you’re interested in volunteering, including adding to your high school volunteer hours, by taking part in one or more of these activities please contact us at myrna@barwin.ca.  We look forward to seeing you there!



On Friday September 28th, an enthusiastic group cleaned up garbage from on Alta Vista Drive from Ridgemont Ave to Bank Street.  This was the first of our activities which will culminate in a summer leadership conference for youth at Ashbury College.

The event gave visibility to YVC! and a number of homeowners came out and thanked the kids.  One lady said “in all my years here I have had tons of garbage thrown on my lawn by students but this is the first time I’ve ever seen kids picking up the garbage”.

Stay tuned for details of the next event!
