Foundation Projects: Volunteer Work in Vancouver B.C.
"May all the love you give away, comes back to fill your heart each day!"
When it comes to creating a culture of caring and new year's giving, we proactively engage everyone in maintaining a spirit of generosity. With the financial support of the local residents living in the surrounding area of Vancouver East End, Amazing Tutors' Children's Foundation was able to pack one thousand Sunshine Food Packages with an easy-to-peel mandarin orange, healthy juice box, muffin and a nut free chocolate bar. We then delivered these extreme weather response resources to Commercial Drive, Grandview, and the Downtown Vancouver Eastside to alleviate hunger. This program is designed to provide time-limited, weather responsive food packages during extreme winter weather which threaten the health of individuals experiencing homelessness. It builds compassion, connection, and a stronger sense of community among children and families while addressing hunger during inclement weather. As our Foundation offers opportunities to develop leadership skills to youth attending our programs, the leadership of hundreds of these local families and caring residents astounds us. In a world that is broken, each one of us has the power to offer and restore hope within someone else. We are very gratified for the depth and breadth of community support and we appreciate everyone's generosity. We feel extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity by local families to engage with the community in such an important way, and to have youth in the community volunteering. We lift our hands and hearts in deep gratitude, and we are honored and humbled by the opportunity to work with our youths and their families.
We value the support we receive from Vancouver's East End and we count ourselves fortunate to live in a community with considerable compassion and care for those in need. As part of our new year's charitable giving, we also delivered some of these resources in front of the Carnegie Library, Gospel Union, Atira Women's Resource Society and Oppenheimer Park. Oppenheimer Park was originally opened in 1902 as the Powell Street Grounds by Vancouver's second mayor, David Oppenheimer in the Downtown Eastside. The park's facilities include a softball field, a basketball hoop, a children's playground, and a community center with bathrooms, meeting space, and public computer access. The park employs two full-time activity coordinators and several part-time staff. Today, Oppenheimer Park is a safe haven for First Nations people of Canada, campers and local residents without housing.
Service Providers Bring Sunshine to DTES
Health and support services are provided by local charities. The Union Gospel Mission is determined to restore the God-given dignity of people by sharing and demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ without discrimination. They provide meals, shelter, outreach and chaplaincy services that relieve suffering and renew hope. They operate affordable housing and life recovery programs that offer freedom from addictive lifestyles. Education and job preparation programs equip program participants for successful living. These preventive programs help to build healthy families in a world that is broken by poverty and addiction, and they do this by coming alongside men, women, and children to provide a hand up towards hope and recovery. What started as a small sense of hope-filled purpose, stemming from Bob Stacey, has grown, shifted, and evolved to bring that same hope to so many men, women, and children since 1940. Today, UGM serves over 3500 meals at its annual Christmas dinner, and over 320,000 meals annually. They have expanded their programs and services significantly and grown to fill seven locations throughout Metro Vancouver and the City of mission. With dedicated, visionary leadership and a united faith in God's provision, UGM is determined to transform communities by overcoming poverty, homelessness, and addiction --one life at a time.
Atira Women's Resource Society is dedicated to supporting women and children affected by violence by offering safe and supportive housing and by delivering education and advocacy aimed at ending all forms of gendered violence. Atira provides a range of services not only in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES) but also in the Lower Mainland. Atira is accessible to anyone who identifies and lives full time as a woman and who experience gendered violence and misogyny. Services offered include long term housing, transitional housing and shelter programs. Professional outreach services are given to First Nations, Metis, Inuit and women who are older and affected by violence. Their Family Project provides support for children who witness abuse and parenting support for the family unit. Atira Women's Resource Society also provides legal advocacy, counselling, and self-employment initiatives such as the Painter Sisters Painting Company and Enterprising Women Making Art.
The Powell Street Getaway serves at a Vancouver Coastal Health funded Mental Health and Substance Use community resource center. They offer a safe consumption site, peer-lead programs, meals, activities and supports for anyone who may need them. The expansion of services is designed to create the space as a hub where many services are offered, with particular emphasis on supporting health referrals and outcomes. Service providers and and their staff actively refer people in need to the Connections Clinic, operated by Vancouver Coastal Health, which is across the street.
These programs will continue Vancouver's evolution to serve the changing needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized people in the Downtown Eastside and will have a greater health focus which includes new programming for seniors, addicts, women, LGBTQ and aboriginal communities. Essentially, a myriad of new initiatives are being put in place to try and revitalize the DTES and increase positive outlook towards the area. Together, we can all participate in a caring, giving and supportive community and create a world of caring and consideration in our local community.
Helping those Less Fortunate Fosters Opportunity for Compassion and Caring for At-Risk Families and Youth
As our human nature continues to evolve, so do our cultural ideas of community and family. The growing diversity of people that compose our society creates a greater range of challenges and opportunities. Building communities of caring, compassion, empathy and change requires that we look beyond ourselves and attempt to reach out to those in need. Regardless of background, we all have remarkable qualities that must be nurtured for our full potential to be reached. We believe that our students deserve the chance to realize, believe in, and achieve their full potential.
At Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, we create environments that foster our students' ability to participate in a caring and giving community. Building connections to community and family, forging bonds of trust, and teaching self-improvement and accountability are the principles we impart in our programs designed to provide leadership training for at-risk youth. We encourage our students to reflect on their interactions, to help them understand the value of compassion, empathy, caring, and to use their new awareness to help in the communities they live in.
Our community outreach programs reflect our values. Providing food, caring, compassion, and kindness helps to build people up, and gives birth to a sense of community for all involved. We strive to work with a variety of charitable organizations to reach as many people as possible. We each have a stake in our community's health, and by including at-risk youth, we create the potential for a brighter future for our community.
Our mentorship program helps at-risk youth learn valuable leadership skills. They learn and establish a greater sense of connection to their community and to the people in their lives. These avenues provide students with confidence, empathy, which helps them form deep and meaningful relationships, and helps them realize their full potential as members of a caring and giving community.
"It is important to build trust and meaningful relationships between people. We are determined to foster friendship and understanding from a variety of different backgrounds and worldviews to make our world a better and safer place to live," says the founders on our team.
The Amazing Tutors' Children's Foundation seeks to build communities by supporting youth and children through educational and volunteer opportunities. If your organization depends on volunteer contributions of time, and you would be interested in discussing our foundation's Community Outreach Program, please contact us today.

Our Youth Leadership Development Program
At our Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, our Youth Leadership Development Program instill in students a sense of bravery and resourcefulness by taking action for a better world. Our students strengthen their leadership capabilities by organizing events and teaching each other new development skills. Our LEAD programs include leadership, education, and development programs that substantially benefit our community. Amazing Tutors develops proactive events that address and develop a range of skills and abilities. These include: academic coaching, mentoring, self-esteem, relief of poverty, advancement of education, religion, charitable works and fundraising. Students test their limits as they push themselves to overcome obstacles and achieve new goals. Our students identify issues of importance, and take action on them to make an impact on their community through service and fundraising projects.
Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation believes in engaging in Programs for Youth that build character, increase self-esteem and, develop life skills. Social development plans provide both children and teens with positive peer interactions, opportunities to develop problem-solving skills and positive adult support. In turn, these help reduce the risk factors associated with juvenile offenders. Though not the complete solution to stopping negative behaviors, organized sports and development programs can contribute to their reduction by giving young people a positive identity, feelings of empowerment and by helping youth acquire leadership, teamwork, and self-governance skills under adult supervision.
Here at our Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, we support collaboration and partnerships among students, educational professionals, business leaders, and the community at large. We focus resources to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their highest potential in school, career, and in life. Amazing Tutors offers a wide range of exercises and extracurricular activity for our students and their families. The variety of Amazing Tutors' programming and opportunities gives students equal prospect to develop leadership skills that help them navigate their world with confidence. We seek to increase students' awareness about their world, by promoting cross-cultural understanding and educating them on issues that will stimulate them to take action to build a caring, giving community. We believe that developing, discovering, empowering, engaging, and challenging students represents the core values of the Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation. We are honored and humbled by the opportunity to work with our youths and their families.
