Sepro Mineral Systems is proudly Canadian.
Part of what makes us proud to be a Canadian company is helping out local communities. With roots in Langley, BC, we’ve taken numerous opportunities to sponsor local rescue workers, mining clubs, and youth organizations. We believe it’s important to give back, especially to those who need it most. With this in mind, we recently partnered up with Youth Unlimited to sponsor one of their events.
What Is Youth Unlimited?
Youth Unlimited (YU) is a non-profit organization that helps young people in Greater Vancouver discover their potential. With a focus on creating mentoring relationships, the team at YU provides a safe space for young people to connect, learn life skills, and grow. Vulnerable youth are supported in their areas of need, whether it be emotional, mental, physical, social, or spiritual. In doing so, YU is making a positive difference for those who need it most. With operations throughout the greater Vancouver area, YU is able to connect with over 20,000 people a year.

Sepro and Youth Unlimited
Sepro first became familiar with Youth Unlimited Langley when several employees attended a charity auction selling artwork created through one of the youth programs. A particular piece of artwork resonated with them thanks to its vibrant colours and global focus. The team decided they would do their best to win the art and after some intense bidding, they did!
The artwork seen above took over 20 hours of work from multiple youth and staff. Half the proceeds from the charity auction went back directly to the youth creators and the other half went back into the program.
After learning more about some of Youth Unlimited Langley’s programs, Sepro wanted to sponsor one of their weekly dinners. These dinners happen at Hangar 17 at the Langley Airport, which provides a safe space where youth can feel like they belong, whether playing arcade games, painting, or sitting down for a meal together. Dinner was a taco salad bar with all the fixings, cooked and served up by Sepro’s own Cheryl Pyper and multiple other regular volunteers.
Visiting the Hangar is the biggest highlight of my week – Youth Unlimited Member
Sepro Mineral Systems is proud to help out our local communities so that everyone has an opportunity to live safely and happily. Thank you again to Youth Unlimited Langley for welcoming us into the warm space of Hangar 17 and letting us hang out for a bit.
