Envision Financial

Community Crew

The Envision Financial Community Crew is a youth ambassador program designed to develop leadership skills and provide an opportunity for students to act as role models while giving back to our local communities. Throughout the year, our team of enthusiastic high school students attend your favourite local community events, and offer free activities such as face painting, play giant jenga, give out fun items, and more. In addition to this, during the summer each Crew member has a unique volunteer placement with one of our non-profit partners.

Head out and see them at local events like the Boundary Bay Airshow, the Mission Twilight Concert Series, Cloverdale Market Days, and more. In engaging with you through our activities, and by helping the community through our volunteer internships, we aim to make a positive impact and improve the lives of people in our communities.
