The Young and the Restless Society of Canada is the first, non-profit clothing exchange store in Vancouver. We are a community and environmentally driven business who are working towards bringing the concept of clothing swaps to schools. Our vision is to have a room in your high schools where students can bring in clean clothes and exchange it with other clothes under the careful supervision of adults from our program.
Implementing clothing exchange in schools would be our first attempt to empower youth. We think that if this initiative is welcomed by our public schooling system and it would allow youth the opportunity to express their unique personalities through clothing, regardless of differences in familial income, or other obstacles which may be preventing youth from accessing clothing.
