Charan Lamba is a senior volunteer with Kidsplay Foundation. Charan was born and raised in India before he immigrated to Canada in 2014. He finished Law Enforcement Studies Diploma from the Justice Institute of British Columbia. Intending to become a Police officer one day, Charan has been serving the community as a Special Municipal Constable with The Vancouver Police Department since 2017. Charan has been an integral part of the Kidsplay Foundation since 2018, realizing the need for good leadership for our youth.
Charan believes that whenever a child interacts in the community, he/she tries to find his/her identity (where he/she belongs). So, it’s crucial for us as a community to introduce them to a good group and give them a positive identity. With the passion to serve the community and mentor the youth, Charan started his Kids Play journey by running a mentorship program at one of the elementary schools in Surrey.
Charan was responsible for teaching ethical and social values to a class of 30 kids while keeping the learning environment fun and interactive. Throughout his time in Kidsplay, Charan has coordinated various sporting events for kids and young adults. At these sporting events, Charan takes time to interact with the youth, bring them under his supervision, and mentor them to be a better version of themselves.
Charan truly believes that the strength to bring change in society lies in positive leadership. As a leader, Charan aspires to lead others in the same direction and introduce more positive leaders in the community to have a bigger impact.
