COMMUNITY CREW 

The Valley First Community Crew is a youth ambassador program designed to develop leadership skills and provide an opportunity for students to act as role models while giving back to our local communities. Throughout the year, our team of university students attend your favourite local community events, and offer free activities such as face painting, playing giant jenga, giving out fun items, and more. In addition to this, during the summer, each Crew member has a unique volunteer placement with one of our non-profit partners. 

For more information on the program, please contact Meaghan Racine, Marketing & Community Specialist at mracine@valleyfirst.com or 250-488-5447.
