Community Involvement

Sports are a fantastic way to bring people together and develop a sense of community.

Sports help teach youth the value of teamwork, self-worth and integrity, and keeps them active and healthy. The Odlum Brown VanOpen supports youth programs to help them achieve their potential and overcome adversity. Every child deserves the opportunity to explore, learn, play and potentially develop a lifelong interest in sports, either competitively or recreationally.

The Odlum Brown VanOpen proudly supports Tennis BC’s Girls in Action outreach program for youth, which works with 150 girls to engage them in tennis while also increasing their social and emotional resiliency.

The Odlum Brown VanOpen also supports CLICK (Contributing to Lives of Inner City Kids), a volunteer-run charitable foundation that focuses on raising funds for community programs and services that support inner city children and youth in Vancouver. One in five children in Vancouver lives in poverty, and programs supported by CLICK feed hungry children, provide safe out-of-school care and access to sports, camps, leadership opportunities and arts and culture.

The Odlum Brown VanOpen supports CLICK (Contributing to Lives of Inner City Kids), a volunteer-run charitable foundation that focuses on raising funds for community programs and services that support inner city children and youth in Vancouver. One in five children in Vancouver lives in poverty, and programs supported by CLICK feed hungry children, provide safe out-of-school care and access to sports, camps, leadership opportunities and arts and culture.

“The CLICK team believes every kids counts in Vancouver and deserves a shot at success. That’s why our 2019 goal is to raise $150,000 for the programs that need funding to ensure kids living in poverty are fed, safe and have access to opportunities other kids take for granted,” says CLICK director Brenda Penton.

Since 2004 CLICK has raised over $700,000 for more than 450 programs that make a massive, daily difference to thousands of children and youth living in poverty in Vancouver. Without support, many of these kids could fall through the cracks. With support, they can dream, set goals and succeed in life.
