Hope for homeless youth in Canada
Boeing’s Global Corporate Citizenship (GCC) program supports non-profit organizations around the globe. The GCC mission is to support and further the efforts of humanitarian, civic and environmental organizations by leveraging Boeing’s financial and people resources.
A team from AeroInfo recently participated in a site visit and check presentation to one of their GCC partners, Covenant House Vancouver. The donation supports their Rights of Passage program for homeless youth.
This program provides youth with safe, affordable housing and support while they transition to independent living. They have to commit to the program which includes curfews and classes and they have to put aside a portion of their income to pay for room and board. These kids are serious about starting over and their journey is inspiring. These young people, 16 to 24 years old, lack basic life skills and many have been through destructive cycles that have prevented them from permanently leaving a life of homelessness.
Boeing helps enhance lives and communities worldwide, investing more than $176 million in 2013. The contribution to Covenant House Vancouver is just one of ways our people are helping others.
