Rethink

Sponsorship

Sponsorship that ditches traditional donor levels for customizing your offer according to your specific needs.


Why

Be a Sponsor

RETHINK THINKING is an opportunity for you to get in front of teens, parents, teachers, facilitators, volunteers, and world-class speakers. Our youth Summit is welcoming 500 teens, 50 adult facilitators, and volunteers of various ages and backgrounds.

Attendees are in junior high and high school – with the majority coming from Vancouver Island and as far away as Finland, last we heard. In all likelihood, the parents of these teens are fully involved in their youth’s collaboration efforts. Teachers and facilitators have a vested interest in guiding these teens through the process and taking what they learned back to their schools.

If you want to show your support and get recognition for your brand, here are some ways you can get involved and become a sponsor.


Join the

Think Tank


Join the THINK TANK and show your pride and involvement in the community and your support for local youth. This is a one time financial donation with a big impact. For your donation, you are sending 10 young people to the Summit! You can pick them or have our Student Bursary organization, the Victoria Foundation, find the kids in the community who couldn’t otherwise afford to go. Imagine being seen by the community for contributing and elevating the lives of youth. It takes a community to make change happen, thank you for considering to become a sponsor.

Donating money is not the only way of being a sponsor. Perhaps you have equipment for the day-of the event or healthy food snacks to share, or furniture that will make the experience better or look better in photos. Being an in-kind sponsor means you’re an Out-Of-The-Box Thinker and is such a valuable contribution it’s worthy of letting the community know. We are actively looking for products and services to be donated In-Kind to raise the experience of this event.
