Youth Transforming society (YTS) is a registered non-profit, student-led group based out of Surrey, BC that aims to raise awareness for humanitarian issues and encourage community volunteerism. Founded in 2010, we have since raised $20,000 for various organizations and have helped hundreds of students get involved. For more information about our organization, please visit: http://www.youthtransformingsociety.org/
To further our goal of inspiring volunteerism, we have created the YTS Scholarship for Community Service. This year, YTS will be giving out three $1000 scholarships. Each scholarship will recognize a student’s dedication and commitment to selfless service in the community. We hope to celebrate the achievements of three young individuals who have created positive change in their communities.
