Survey’s in on today’s youth.

In a recent survey, we found 79% of 18-29 year olds in BC believe we are all a part of a community and that everyone should give back with their time and active participation. And 57% mentioned a key priority for them is volunteering in their local community. To whoever said today’s youth are the lost generation: we say you’re wrong.

Empowering youth year-round.

Every year, Coast Capital invests 7% of our budgeted pre–tax profits towards local community causes. 
Since 2000, that's more than $71 million.

Because youth face many challenges on their journey to independence, Coast Capital Savings strategically invests and works alongside our community partners to break down many of the barriers that young people face
and empowering them with the skills they need to succeed.

* Entries will be rated on innovation, achievability and impact. Four prizes of $2,500 each. Limit of one entry per person. No purchase necessary. Open to residents of B.C. who are 19 or older by July 1, 2018 or who have permission of their parent or guardian. Contest closes at 11:59 pm PDT on September 3, 2018. Coast Capital may publish entries or portions of entries online, including through social media. Winners must answer a skill testing question. Odds of winning depend on skill and number of entrants.
