Esquimalt Youth for Change is hoping to make the world a better place.

This month the Esquimalt High School group will move it forward with its annual Cycle for Change.

On May 23, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., student cyclists will be out in full force on the high school’s track, raising money for  two charities: Her Way Home – a women’s transition house in Victoria, and Raise Your Voice, a youth-led charity supporting a girls school in Malui.

The 12-hour marathon cycle will cap off with a community barbecue at 5 p.m.

Esquimalt Youth for Change works to promote tolerance and change in engaging ways both at school and within the community.
