Random acts of volunteering everywhere

As part of the BC school course requirements, students need to have 60 volunteer hours during their high school years. We want to help!  412 R.A.V.E. is set up to help students to reach out into in the city of Abbotsford and SERVE.  


412 Ministries will set up various SERVE sites and all the youth need to do is register and show up ready to make a difference in their community. Some volunteering sites will include:

City of Abbotsford - see below

Archway Food Bank

Gateway Summer Camp

Missions Bottle Drive - see below

Life Second Chance Thrift Shop

Abbotsford Gleaners

Gateway's Extreme Weather Shelter - see below

and more


As sites are confirmed, they will be posted and promoted at Summit Youth and on the Summit Youth Instagram page.  Space in each site will be limited so it's on a first come-first serve basis.  All needed supervision and training will be provided for each site.
