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 community-based charitable foundation, which focuses on raising funds for community programs and services that support inner city children and youth in Vancouver. The organization helps them develop critical skills and provides access to activities, food programs, out-of-school care, literacy, sports & recreation, and arts & culture programming.


“For 12 years, CLICK’s totally volunteer board has been raising funds for more than 200 grassroots programs that make a massive, daily difference to thousands of children and youth living in poverty in Vancouver. Without support, these kids will fall through the cracks. With support, they can dream, set goals and succeed in life.”
