Hyundai Canada will expand its partnership with BGC Canada.
Over the next four years, Hyundai Canada will provide $1,000,000 to support BGC Canada and the Youth of the Year program.
“We are proud to build on our commitment to BGC Canada as a title sponsor of the organization’s Youth of the Year program and will continue to fulfil our pledge to help Canadian youth realize their full potential as the leaders of tomorrow.”
“It is important for future generations to have access to resources that will help equip them to overcome adversity, and foster positive change in their communities”, says Don Romano, President and CEO of Hyundai Canada.
BGC Canada’s Youth of the Year is a nationwide competition to celebrate the achievements, service and leadership of youth in BGC Clubs, schools, and communities.
Participating Canadian youth exhibit leadership skills, commitment, and advocacy for young people at their Club and across the country.
Six Club members are selected as “Regional Youth of the Year,” followed by one youth selected as “National Youth of the Year” for demonstrating exceptional leadership, service, and achievement.
As part of its support to BGC Canada, Hyundai Canada has also provided four 2021 Santa Fe SUVs to Clubs across the country to ensure their services are accessible for even more youth and families in their communities. The operational costs of these vehicles, including fuel and insurance, will be covered by Hyundai, and Hyundai dealerships for the respective Clubs will provide complimentary regularly scheduled maintenance.
The Santa Fe donated vehicles will support local Clubs in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and British Columbia.
“We greatly appreciate Hyundai’s dedication and support of our Clubs, through the donation of vehicles to help Club staff reach the young people and families that need them the most and their contribution to our annual Youth of the Year program to showcase and celebrate our young leaders”, says Owen Charters, President and CEO of BGC Canada.
