THE STORY:

Who we are

We represent YPC (Young Professionals Council), a committee of IDRF (International Development and Relief Foundation). We are 14 volunteers committed to giving our time outside of our personal and professional lives towards a shared vision, that together we can make a difference!

What we are supporting…

For 2016 one of our initiatives will be to raise funds for Syrian Youth Education, particularly for children with special needs in Lebanon. Our aim is to help them realize their potential through programs in the fields of education, career development, and global community engagement.

How we will do this...
We are proud to announce we will be organizing our first event:  “Skate4Syrians” on Saturday, February 6th.  Our team has organized a family friendly skating event where collectively we will skate 1200 laps to raise funds for the 1200 Syrian youth that are currently enrolled in these schools in Lebanon.

We are looking for your support in helping raise funds for this program. Here are a few ways you can contribute and help make a difference!

  • Sponsor our team as we “Skate4Syrians”, through our dedicated crowd funding page
  • Purchase tickets to attend and help us skate 1200 laps and raise funds for this project
  • Purchase tickets to watch and support family and friends and indulge in some winter treats

To buy tickets for "Skate4Syrians", please visit : http://www.idrf.com/skate4syrians

The impact...

The innovative program will reach out to the many thousands of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon who do not have access to formal education.  The funds raised will help train  teachers to work with students with a variety of special needs.  This project will fund educational trainers who will provide workshops, create individual education plans, and enhance the extraordinary work of these teachers.  With your help, Syrian refugee students will have better opportunities and brighter futures.

Please donate today, and also plan to join us at "Skate4Syrians", a special fundraising event for supporters of all ages!
