Community Financial Assistance

 If you have been accepted as a member of BCYP this fall, and are planning to request financial assistance from community sources (such as a school, service club, business, community foundation, or municipal government) to help cover your registration fee, the letters below may be of use. The first template letter would be appropriate if you are requesting assistance from a group you are a part of — such as your school, a club you are a member of, or your municipal government. The second template would be better to use if you are applying for financial assistance from an organization or business that you have no direct ties to — such as a service club or local business.

The Week at a Glance

Debate

BCYP uses debate to propose its activities for the sessional year, and to have an opportunity to amend the constitution of our organization. We also debate "Private Member's Resolutions" which are single-issue topics our members can debate. These are often issues of importance to members. Examples can be found here.

Each member has a free vote in determining what our organization does for the year, and on which PMRs may be passed.

Nightly Activities

Every night our Cabinet plans fun activities where members can get to know each other. These include icebreakers, a penny auction, our "Camp night" where we introduce members to our largest and most ambitious service project, and on the last night, our dance!

While these nightly activities are optional, we highly encourage them to give members an opportunity to make long-lasting memories.
