Let's walk around Trout Lake!! In this park, we gather to celebrate life events (like grad) and to honour our community - joining pow wows and the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.

20kmView + print!

We are ending our 20Km route at the Stanley Park Inukshuk. Inukshuks are a symbol from the Inuit people in northern Canada. This ancient symbol represents hospitality and friendship.

Join us as we go past the East Van Cross (a symbol of identity and hope for our community), Vancouver Community College (where many of our youth go for upgrading) and down into the core of our city.

About Inner Hope Youth Ministries

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING TO SUPPORT THE YOUTH OF EAST VANCOUVER.


Inner Hope is built on mutually transformative long-term relationships. Our community is diverse and includes many single parent families. Around 90% of our community members are First Nations or Métis. We support our community's vision to shatter multi-generational cycles of trauma which have led to addiction, abuse and poverty.


When Inner Hope Youth Ministries was launched, our parents asked us to create a Home for their youth in a safe location. “The Home,” launched in 2014, provides family-style housing for young people (and sometimes their children) from East Vancouver.


The Home is a community space where multi-generational family gatherings are held, where parents and family can visit and stay the night and where friends gather to play games, watch sporting events and eat delicious homemade meals. It is also a place of growth. It is designed for youth who want to go to school, get a job and build life skills. House Parents live in The Home modeling healthy living and helping the four youth who live there achieve their goals.
