The Rossland Youth Action Network (YAN)’s mandate is to work collaboratively to build community capacity to increase the quality and quantity of youth directed programming and to strengthen community cohesion. Since 2013 we have been working with youth & community to identify opportunities to get youth engaged and have established working relationships with schools, community organizations and local businesses with the intent of leveraging community support for youth projects.
We are raising funds to launch the YAN Shreds Snowboard Program. We aim to give local youth the opportunity to experience snowboarding in a fun, safe and positive atmosphere. We will provide mountain access, gear, coaching and mentorship. The YAN Shreds program will be targeting youth in need who may not normally be able to access equipment, lessons and lift passes.
Yodel.org is supporting YAN Shreds by waiving the 5% site administration fees on all funds raised through the site.
