It’s Zero Ceiling’s 25th anniversary year, and celebrations of this rather momentous coming of age will launch with an Open House at the SLCC on April 26. It’ll be the first time the organization has been able to meet with supporters in person since 2019, so there will be lots of juicy updates on what they’ve been up to over the last few years, and what direction they’re charting as they move forwards.
From a plucky newborn initiative, run entirely by volunteers, to give youth from Vancouver’s Downtown East Side a day on the mountain, to a grounded organization that employs between 17 and 20 staff and serves up to 400 young people facing homelessness every year with two incredible programs, much has come to maturation, and warrants celebrating.
Join Zero Ceiling from 4.45pm on Tuesday, April 26th in the Istken Hall at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre.
