We are thrilled to share with you the release of our Kamloops Report, detailing the journey of the first-ever Youth Climate Corps cohort in Kamloops. This initiative, a collaboration between YCCBC, the City of Kamloops, and BCHydro, aimed to empower local youth while addressing the pressing issue of climate change.
Spanning from May to October 2023, this pilot program was a testament to the dedication and passion of our young participants. During this time, they not only worked on crucial climate action projects but also delved into topics like civic engagement and reconciliation, broadening their perspectives and skills.
One of the highlights of the program was the development and implementation of the Climate Friendly Homes Program, a significant step towards reducing emissions and fostering a more sustainable community. Additionally, the successful execution of the city bike valet served as a proof of concept, showcasing the potential for future climate initiatives in Kamloops.
We invite you to delve into the Kamloops Report and explore the inspiring stories and impactful outcomes of this pioneering YCCBC cohort. Together, let's celebrate the achievements of our young climate leaders and the bright future they are shaping for our communities.
