Graduation, Celebration, and Gratitude

Hello folks,

This week we're excited to share Episode 6 of Care Package. We speak to two of our wonderful volunteer staff members, Sam and Rowan, about their experiences of missing graduation - from university and from high school due to COVID.

Here are a few photos of Sam (from top left to bottom right): Sam at camp, Sam's hybrid animal (listen to the podcast for more info on this exquisite creature). Sam's quarantine award, and a photo from Sam's time as a participant at The YES - spot them on the far left of that group photo!

Sam is also Vancouver Poetry Slam's Slammaster, and you can catch the online slam they host on Monday's! Follow @vancouverpoetryslam on Instagram for more information.

Here are a couple bubble-blowing gems of Rowan at camp!

Episode 6 also includes 15 voicemails from folks all around the province about gratitude - thank you to everyone who called in. We loved being able to share snippets about your loved ones, dogs, cakes, etc!

We're creating a YES Grad 2020 committee.. If you want to get involved, DM us on IG or email us at - let's plan some camp magic, graduation style!

I hope this finds you well. Please reach out if The YES could provide any support to you at this time.

Warmly, Lauren
