Youth Challenge International (YCI) has recently been accepted into the Aeroplan Charitable Pooling Program, wherein YCI can actively solicit Aeroplan Mile donations for a one-month period each calendar year. Help YCI go the extra mile! Given YCI’s commitment to achieving meaningful development results, YCI will launch our first ever Aeroplan Mile Recruitment Drive as part of the Charitable Pooling Program to correspond with International Development Week, which commences on February 6th. YCI will solicit Aeroplan donations from February 6th to March 4th, 2012.
Youth Challenge International has a long tradition of promoting youth innovation to drive positive change. Building on over 20 years of experience, YCI programs are designed to meet the needs of youth affected by poverty through four integrated sectors: livelihoods, health, leadership and the environment.
YCI’s dedicated youth volunteers implement substantive youth development programs in coordination with local youth and partner organizations in Ghana, Tanzania, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Guyana. More than 31,000 hours were contributed by volunteers to global development programs last year and more than 10,000 young people directly benefited from YCI programs.
