Vancouver Island PARTY program
Please see the following from the Vancouver Island PARTY program.
The Vancouver Island P.A.R.T.Y. Program (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) needs your help! P.A.R.T.Y. is an injury prevention program designed for high school students. Grade 10’s from across Vancouver Island visit hospitals to learn about trauma and the consequences of risky behaviour. In the 2015-2016 school year, over 3500 students attended the P.A.R.T.Y. Program across Vancouver Island. P.A.R.T.Y. is run entirely by volunteers! Professional volunteers such as BC Ambulance Services paramedics are the heart of the program. We are grateful for the continued support of the many paramedics throughout Vancouver Island who give their time for a few hours every month to share our important injury prevention messaging. We are always looking for paramedic volunteers. Currently we need additional paramedic volunteer support in the following communities: Victoria, Duncan, and Nanaimo!
