COMMUNITY CREW

We have paused the Community Crew program due to Covid-19 restrictions. Our youth ambassadors will be out in the community as soon as it is safe to do so.

The Island Savings 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 high-school students attend local community events in our trade area, and offer free activities such as face painting, playing giant jenga, family games and interacting with our mascot Penny the Owl. In addition to this, during the summer, each Crew member has a unique volunteer placement with one of our non-profit partners. 

For more information on the program, please email us at community@islandsavings.ca.
