Teen Leadership Program
Each year, a group of Alberta teens who have been affected
by cancer embark on a journey to a third world country to
build homes for low income families. A unique part of the
Kids Cancer Care’s Teen Leadership Program, the Travel
Project empowers teens to move beyond their own hardships
with cancer and reach out to others in need. Teens are
expected to raise a minimum of $1000 each to take part in
the build. During the course of the program, they learn to
fundraise and communicate with the public, while developing
a new awareness of world issues.
Travel Project is part of Shelter Canada’s mission to
travel to El Salvador to build houses for low income
families. This volunteer initiative is made possible for our
teens through the generosity of Stepper Custom Homes and the
larger Calgary community.
