Solid State works in a region south of the Fraser River which overlaps with the unceded, traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt and Kwikwetlem peoples. We are grateful for their generosity in having us here on their lands. 

  We are always looking for new friends, collaborators, partners, participants and members! 

 

  If you are a YOUNG PERSON (define that however you like!) who is interested in joining one of our already-existing crews, that is totally possible. Have a look at the cohorts we have running and see if any of them interest you. 

 

  If you would like to start a co-operative YOURSELF, we might well be able to help you. It might be just you and a good idea, or maybe you already have a group of friends or colleagues who want to work together. 

   If you are a MENTOR who wants to help out, support an existing co-op or start your own. Maybe you are you a skilled person who is looking to share your talents a little. Or maybe you’d be into mentoring some kids. Or maybe you have a business idea that you’d love to make happen with a crew of youth. Or maybe you already have a group of kids you hang out with and would love to build a co-operative. 

   If you are a COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION who would like to partner with us we’d be happy to talk about collaborating. If you are interested in starting a co-op enterprise with your group, we can tailor a project to fit the group’s needs, skills, interests and resources. 

   If you are a FUNDER or BUSINESS or KIND-HEARTED PERSON who wants to support us, well honestly, we need support of all kinds! There are so many ways you can help out. We need money for sure, but there are all kinds of other things we could really, really use. Food more than anything! But resources, supplies, advice, friends ...
