Canadian Youth for COVID-19 Support is a group of youth working towards providing individuals with an opportunity to support local communities and families during the pandemic. CYCS distributes handwritten notes, masks and seeds to neighbourhoods and takes donations to help the frontline workers at the William Osler Health System.
Our mission is to brighten the lives of individuals and families who are struggling through these unprecedented times with the involvement of youth. Engaging youth in mental health activities throughout the course of this pandemic will improve their livelihoods along with those of the community members and the health care heroes they support.
Our goal is to carry initiatives to improve lives all while supporting the health care heroes at the William Osler Health System. This pandemic has become a life-changing experience for several families, who need all of our help. We hope to deliver handwritten notes to at 300 individuals in need and raise $1000.00 for the William Osler Health System.
Some projects our team is working on!!!
Those living in long term care homes, especially seniors, find it difficult to stay positive during these unprecedented times. Without the much-needed support of friends and family, mental health is at an all-time low. However, CYCS hopes to reverse this pattern by providing seniors with the support they need through the delivery of handwritten notes.
As the pandemic continues to affect our lives in many different ways, the use of personal protective equipment has become increasingly important. As a result, the availability of such disposable PPE has decreased. In the near future, we will be recruiting youth sewists across Ontario to help us sew and distribute cloth masks to their friends, family and communities.
