How we support
WestJet is proud to partner with WE to support their mission and goals. Since April 2014, WestJet has been delighted to support WE and WE Day by providing the gift of flight for selected youth living in remote communities to attend WE Day in Canada. To celebrate the launch of the partnership, WestJet surprised and flew 12 students from Thunder Bay to WE Day Ottawa. To date, more than 260 youth and educators have taken part in the WestJet WE Day Experience to celebrate the power of WE Day events across the country.
WE Day is an empowerment event that combines the energy of a live concert with the inspiration of incredible stories of leadership and change. WE Day brings together world-renowned speakers and performers with tens of thousands of youth to celebrate the power of service. The best part: students earn their event tickets by taking one local and one global action through WE Schools, a yearlong educational program that engages, educates and empowers young people to become compassionate leaders and active citizens.
WestJetters across our network interact with the youth from these communities at our airports, on our aircraft and at WE Day events where WestJetters and their families have the opportunity to participate as volunteers.
WE is a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world. WE is made up of two divisions: WE Charity and ME to WE social enterprise, which empower people to make a difference at home and globally.
