Volunteer MBC's Step Up Youth Volunteer Ambassadors



 Who are Step Up Ambassadors?

 When and Where do We Meet?

Step Up Ambassadors: The Step Up Youth Volunteer Ambassadors (SUYVA) is the name of our program. We, the members of the program, are called Step Up Ambassadors. We are a dynamic group of high school students (Grades 7 - 12).

Our Commitment in Peel: Volunteer MBC's mission is to "promote and support volunteerism in an effort to connect all people to meaningful volunteer opportnities." Each Step Up Ambassador will play their part to contribute to this mission by working towards increasing the number of student volunteers all throughout the Peel Region (Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon). We collaborate with elementary students, of course high school students, post-secondary students, youth lead groups and organizations, youth focused groups and organizations, and community service organizations, to make a difference in our community.

Our Contributions: By encouraging at least one friend to join StepUp, taking the lead in organizing volunteering events, volunteering with friends, and inspiring our peers to do something positive, the Step Up Ambassadors WILL make a difference in our community!
