It was a distinct honour and privilege to have the opportunity to mentor Indigenous youth to recognize their endless potential through the Blue Eagle program. Excited for what the 2023-2024 Blue Eagle year has in place. I also learned that community partnerships are invaluable! Our program partners with VPD, Surrey RCMP, Options BC, Surrey Police, Surrey Schools, Britannia Community Centre, and so many more.
The Blue Eagle program would not be possible without strong community partnerships and collaboration! Moreover, the power of community is so valuable- so many different people in the community stepped up. For example, they made dinner for our youth, and others came in to give motivational talks to our youth. Lastly, the annual Blue Eagle graduation ceremony was very special- getting to see the youth receive certificates from our Chief Officer was amazing and, I am sure, very memorable for the youth. Proud moment!
