CYLA educates Canadian youth through mentorships and educational opportunities designed to expand their understanding of what it means to be a leader. We also provide scholarships to help outstanding young leaders fund their post-secondary education. 


Take on a cause

CYLA is launching Writing Memories​, a new initiative to provide companionship to seniors and preserve their stories for posterity. The program starts in September 2017 and we are looking for dedicated volunteers to join us!

We are excited to be hosting our 5th Annual Charity Concert this year on Thursday, March 1st, 7pm at Temple Sholom (7190 Oak Street, Vancouver). This year’s concert will be directly supporting the publication of a book of memoirs, the product of our massive initiative Writing Memories. Through this initiative, university students are interviewing seniors from our community and writing their stories. This nuanced project needs your support and we invite you to join us on March 1st to enjoy an amazing concert in support of this worthy cause!
