With weekly rehearsals and several performances a year, the YPOSBC program incorporates singing, dancing and acting as well as learning various aspects of stagecraft and offering positions in production.

YPOSBC has worked with hundreds of singers from age 8 to 80, engaged many musicians, enrolled eager parents, and delighted thousands of audience members, young and old alike.

Little Black Dress Gala

Since 2017, YPOS singers have donated their time and talents to the Little Black Dress Gala, an annual event put on by Help Change My City, a Vancouver-based charity that provides mentorship to troubled and underprivileged youth. This video doesn't identify YPOSBC specifically but two YPOS singers, Markus Ferrari and Brenna Goodwin-McCabe, are featured in it. YPOS singers at the 2018 event were Carmen Faivre-Duboz and Eryka Alanna. The 2019 gala was held on November 8.
