Thank YOU! - Squamish Youth Chamber Champions

Without the support of our sponsors and partners, our youth programming would not be possible. 

Our goal is to make all our youth programs free and accessible to all youth. In 2020, we want to deliver Youth Leadership training at Don Ross Middle School and Howe Sound Secondary School. We want to offer quarterly Service Spotlight training to equip youth with essential frontline skills. And we we want to create inspiring events, such as a panel of young business leaders. 

We have lofty goals and we are seeking partners and sponsors. We have already raised about 20% of our target, which means some programming will start in 2020. 

There are many different ways you can help. If you would like to be a Squamish Youth Chamber Champion and help make our programming possible, please contact louise@squamishchamber.com.

Super excited to see @wildandheart latest post about their re-opening next weekend! #roadtorecovery #supportsquamish #supportlocal #Repost ・・・ SHOP FEELS 💛✨ So happy to Re-open this past weekend and just wanted to update everyone as per our Covid19 safety measures and limited shop hours. We are continuing offering ONLINE shopping & FREE Delivery in Squamish as MOST recommended plus you can scoop styles first! But you can now visit us in-store and we have added plexiglass at check-out, and to practice social distancing we are limited to 3 customers Max at a time {thanks for your patience}, when shopping please limit your touching of product and if you plan to handle product you MUST use hand-sanitizer provided or your own, try-on’s only if your serious, and we are cleaning throughout the day, also facemasks are coming in later this week and are recommended as our space is smaller, and our front door is going to be open for added ventilation most days. Limited Store hours are now Wed-Sat 11-5pm, and Sunday 11-4pm, this will change again soon most likely as we all figure out this new normal, but would love your feedback? And any suggestions so you feel good and safe in our space? All in all being safe and sharing our beautiful space and goods is the BEST feeling, so grateful for so much support locally and many said it this weekend ... some beauty and supporting local is good for our mental health too! Hope to see you soon from the other side, of the plexiglass 🤍 #shopfeels #covidsafety #staysafe #supportlocal #shoponline #instoresafety #squamish #wildandheart
