Connecting Community Groups & Squamish Youth

The Hotspot provides assistance with tasks that contribute to projects such as:

  • Planning an event
  • Creating and distributing promotional materials
  • Technical training/tutoring
  • Working on administrative documents
  • And more!

This outreach and assistance we provide is made possible with the help of Squamish Youth!  One of the core goals of The Hotspot is to provide services and share resources with other non profit groups and The Hotspot is very eager to share its most valuable asset: Youth Interns.

Through government funding, The Hotspot hires several youth throughout the year to help to run the public computer lab and community space and provide computer tutoring to the public.  As the youth have a lot of time outside of those core duties, it is extremely valuable to utilize that time to engage them in skill building projects that benefit the community.

When a non profit group requests project assistance, they are connected with enthusiastic youth who bring their fresh skills and creativity to the project.  The Hotspot's Youth & Projects Coordinator supports the youth with training and skills they need, and facilitates smooth communication and feedback with the group's representative.

Office & Location Services

It can be a bit intimidating for new or potential new members and volunteers to visit someone's house and its also not always pleasant for the same few group members to consistently have to play the host. Rather than using and having to publicly promote one of your members' personal mailing address, you may find it more convenient to share ours. By having a physical public location, your group's presence in the community instantly broadens.
