“The caliber of youth who become involved with our Youth Troop is exemplary. These teens are devoted to fighting cancer, through advocacy, volunteering, carrying out prevention and awareness campaigns and now through fundraising and art. We are excited to be able to engage them and the wider community to appreciate our young local artists and fight this horrible disease,” states Volunteer Engagement Coordinator and Youth Troop innovator, Christine Richer of the Canadian Cancer Society-Essex County Unit.
The Canadian Cancer Society’s Youth Troop consists of youth leaders from various high schools throughout Windsor/Essex County. The goal of the Youth Troop is to increase awareness about cancer prevention and health promotion in our local high schools, while at the same time, providing youth with the meaningful, flexible and fun volunteer experiences they are looking for.
New members are always welcome at the CCS’s Youth Troop. One of the great benefits of membership is the uniting of community to fight this devastating disease and making a real difference in the lives of people right here in Essex County, creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer.
