Who Are We?
Launched in 2016, ProjectBe is an initiative of the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) Youth Council. We aim to connect public servants to a cause in their local community by raising awareness, encouraging volunteerism, and fundraising.
In the past two years, we have focused our support towards youth mental health and refugee integration efforts in Canada. For 2018, ProjectBe is proud to announce a third pillar for this year’s campaign: addressing homelessness.
