International Relations Committee
Youth Ambassadors Legacy Fund
For more than 20 years, the youth of Barrie have had the opportunity to explore many different parts of the world through programs coordinated under the auspices of our International Relations Committee. Local teens have traveled to many countries in Europe, Asia and even here in our own hemisphere. We know from their many testimonials what extraordinary experiences they have had, some of which have been life-altering.
From the beginning our committee has insisted that we would accept “the best kids, not the richest kids” into our program. Countless hours have been spent fund-raising to ensure community sponsorships are always available for those less fortunate. Our community sponsors have been amazing, with many supporting us from the very beginning and have never let us down. We hope they continue to see the significance of these opportunities.
As we look to the future, we wish to lay an even stronger foundation to ensure that we continue to provide opportunities for all deserving youth, regardless of their financial means. To do so we are reaching out to all who have benefitted directly from our programs and all those who see the benefits for the youth in our community. To achieve our goal, we need the continued support from our community.
