GBAAS Youth Leadership & Performing Arts Programs

Performing Arts Programs

GBAAS helps local dancers participate in dance shows and conferences throughout Canada.  These programs help dancers learn new skills, collaborate with other artists, and showcase their talents in other communities.  These opportunities are funded by the generous donations and sponsorships we receive each year.  Tickets from GBAAS Fundraising Shows also help fund our other programs including the "Esteem Team" and "Youth Scholarships".

Youth Leadership Programs

The GBAAS Esteem Team is a group of youth volunteers aged 12-18.  These inspiring youth create workshops to promote self-esteem and positive body-image to Grade 5 & 6 students.  Each year, the Esteem Team raises funds so they can present their uplifting workshops at schools throughout the province.  To make a donation or book the Esteem Team for a school presentation, please contact us at: 250-462-1025

GBAAS Youth Scholarships

We believe all youth should have equal access to positive leadership, artistic, and cultural programs.  With your generous support, GBAAS awards annual financial scholarships to youth-in-need so they can participate in these essential programs.  These programs have a lifelong impact on youth by helping build self-confidence, compassion, discipline, teamwork, program solving and leadership skills.
