AN INNOVATIVE SOLUTION TO YOUTH HOMELESSNESS
Zero Ceiling reduces youth homelessness and raises the quality of life for at-risk and homeless youth from Vancouver through the Sea to Sky Corridor. We provide housing, employment and professional support that empowers youth with effective, practical tools to live healthy and independent lives. Through adventure-based learning, we provide opportunities for youth to experience mountain life and cultivate healthy, purposeful direction in their lives
WHAT WE DO
Our Work 2 Live program and Adventure Sessions provide structured outdoor experiences and life skills support that help participants, ages 16-24, get off the streets and into the mountains of Whistler, BC. We believe that mountain experiences are powerful agents for change. All young people should get the chance to breathe mountain air, hear the scrape of a board on snow, feel earth below feet, and wind whooshing past their ears. They should also be given the chance to learn the value of working hard and to feel the pride that comes from building a self-supportive life.

We give them the support they need to reach their full potential in life and in our community.
