COVID-19 UPDATE: EYA is planning for in-person fall programs with some changes to keep you and your family safe, including small group sizes, outdoor activities only, 2-metre physical distancing, no sharing of tools or gloves, frequent hand-washing, and safely-prepared pre-packaged lunches. We’re carefully monitoring updates from health authorities – if it isn’t possible to run in-person programs, we will run virtual programs instead. You can find our full COVID-19 policy here.

If you have any questions relating to our Peer Mentorship offerings, contact us at info@eya.ca or 604-689-4446.
