Out of the Ashes Bursary
The Out of the Ashes Bursary Program started in 2007. The bursary was started as a prevention initiative by Leann Kopytko, a youth counsellor working in the Day One Society’s Raven Program and was the brainchild of Leann’s husband Ron, who shared her passion for helping youth who struggle with lifestyle issues.
Although Ron passed away, the bursary continues to this day in his memory and provides educational support to youth (ages 17–29) or young adults (ages 30+) in Kamloops who have a minimum of one year recovery time. Since 2008, over $100,000 has been awarded in bursaries.
