2023 Virtual CYC Program

The CYC virtual program consists of a live orientation session and three self-paced modules. The orientation session is a one-hour mandatory webinar that will be offered three times during week one of the program.

The three self-paced modules all include a pre-recorded video, a knowledge testing quiz, and an action project that can be completed in your yard or local neighbourhood.

Through this three-week program, you will have the opportunity to earn up to seven high school community service hours (one hour for the orientation session and two hours for each module).
