Holly introduced, Beaver With U is a Canadian non-profit organization founded in August 2019, dedicated to help Asian youth better adjust to life in Canada from academic, daily life and mental health aspects. Beaver has helped more than 15,000 people and gave out more than 18,200 volunteer hours. We encourage community volunteerism in the hope of providing high-quality opportunities to help young people hone important skills that will prepare them for future education, employment and career development.
At age of 14, Holly started her journey of studying aboard. From an international student to the founder of a leading non-profit organization, she had experienced language barriers, culture differences, loneliness, and all sorts of setbacks and obstacles. These experiences allows Holly to sympathies the challenges of the current generation in order to better support them. As mentioned by the representatives, youth supporting youth is the most effective way to develop the youth community. And Holly agrees and understands with the ideology, and is working hard to support youth in the community.
