YAC at J Percy Page

IMG_3870[1]Youth Advisory Council was out in full force at this year’s J Percy Page Volunteer Fair.

We were excited to meet so many cool students looking for ways to get involved in their community. It was also the first time we tried out our brand new Prize Wheel!

The Prize Wheel was a Youth Advisory Council initiative, right from conception to completion! I am proud to announce that the Prize Wheel was a HUGE hit with all the students at J Percy Page. Great job YACers 🙂

Not only did it draw attention to our table, but it engaged youth in breast health information and had them asking TONS of great questions like, “UHHHH… how can men get breast cancer if they don’t have breasts?!” We were happy to inform them that, even though men have much less breast tissue than women, they still have it! That means that men can get breast cancer too. In fact, 1% of breast cancers in Canada this year will be in men. We are looking forward to getting on the road again soon with our YAC Prize Wheel and raise some more awareness!

Until next time,
