With Labour Day around the corner and a chill in the air, it definitely feels like it’s back to school time. It’s also a great time to get your name on the list to attend some of VHF’s fall programming for cheap or even free! VHF is eager to enable students to attend our programs and benefit from an education in Vancouver’s history and heritage conservation. The VHF Student Access Program is intended to assist those who would otherwise be unable to cover the costs associated with attending our programs. For the purposes of the Student Access Program, VHF defines a student as 16 – 30 years of age, currently enrolled as a full-time student. If you fit the bill, sign up for our Student Access Program by calling the VHF office at 604-264-9642. For all the details click here.

Some VHF events will include a student priced ticket. Please note, due to programming costs, we are not able to offer discounts on all events. Student priced tickets are currently available for the following events:

Brown Bag Talks at BCIT Downtown
Evening Lectures at Hycroft
Retracing South Asian History: Special Walking Tour of Kitsilano                                2015 Laneway House Tour

If you’d like to sponsor a student to attend a VHF program or become a sponsored student, 50-100% of the cost of certain programs will be covered as a result. Currently we have the 2015 Laneway House Tour available for sponsored spots. Volunteering is another way you can become involved with VHF and attend some of our programming. Read more here. Whatever way you choose to get involved for the coming school year, help us reach students who would love to learn more about Vancouver’s heritage and history.
