A message from the Youth Events Squad (YES)

We are YES, which stands for Youth Events Squad. We are a group of 13-18 year old youth who meet every week with the City of Surrey Youth Engagement Team to plan and organize events to host for the youth of Surrey.

We plan events annually which include a basketball tournament, an arts café, a talent show, and cooking competition. We collaborate with one another to create the best event possible opportunities for the youth of Surrey. We have an amazing time working with each other and learn so much with every meeting. There are so many wonderful people you meet along this journey and create a network of friends.

Support City-wide Annual Youth Events

We invite you to support city-wide annual events for youth. Surrey is home to more than 60,000 diverse youth—one quarter of all youth in the Metro Vancouver area!

The City of Surrey engages young citizens by providing meaningful programming. Surrey Youth participate in planning these events through organizing committees, advising councils and focus groups. Hundreds of youth also volunteer at the events by hosting activities, taking on leadership roles and providing entertainment.

Together, we build capacity, strengthen community connections, develop leadership, and enhance the quality of life for Surrey residents. Contact youth@surrey.ca to discuss opportunities.
