2021-22 Step Up Youth Program:

Updated Spring 2021

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Island Health’s Step Up Youth Program. 

The 2021-2022 Step Up Program will be postponed as the Volunteer Resources & Engagement department focuses on the COVID-19 Vaccination Response. We will therefore not be onboarding for the program in the Spring/Summer as we usually do.  

Please do check back to this webpage over the coming months as we hope to have more clarity on the program as the vaccination response and the COVID-19 situation unfolds.
