Youth Climate Corps BC's Vancouver 2024 Report is Now Available



Youth Climate Corps (YCCBC) is happy to share our 2024 Vancouver report which outlines the amazing work done this year by YCCBC's first ever Vancouver crew. In collaboration with the City of Vancouver, Eon Electric, Vancouver Hastings Community Action Team, HUB Vancouver, and Ducks Unlimited, YCCBC facilitated several transformative programs aimed to empower the city's young people in the fight against climate change.


From August 2023 to March 2024 YCCBC employed a coordinator and three young people as Climate Action Technicians (CATs) who together completed over 500 working days of climate action in the Vancouver area. Over the course of the program the CATs expanded their knowledge and skillsets, promoted community engagement, and facilitated ecosystem resilience. All while earning a livable wage.


A undoubtable highlight of the year was the development of the Vancouver Climate Friendly Homes Program (CFHP), intended to provide the resources and education needed to make the homes of Vancouver residents more comfortable, resilient, and climate friendly. The CATs were responsible to the design of the CFHP toolbox and hope to expand the CFHP framework to other communities.
