VOCYL - Victoria Opportunities for Community Youth Leadership - is jointly supported by CanAssist and Community Living Victoria. The program, which began in 2004, now has a presence on the web that provides lots of information, explains how to get involved and includes a calendar of events.

VOCYL gives youth the chance to develop leadership skills with the goal of promoting an inclusive community for all. Opportunities for young people include: participating in community initiatives; developing and delivering presentations and workshops to high school students; planning social and fundraising events; participating in camping trips, adaptive recreational sports and retreats; and building a support network among themselves.
