WestJet is a Mentoring Partner with LiveDifferent. Since 2008, WestJet has been supporting LiveDifferent with the gift of flight, providing for the travel needs of our Canadian youth programs and our international Builds program.
In 2012, WestJet furthered our partnership with the inaugural WestJet LiveDifferent Build – their first international community investment initiative. To extend their caring culture in one of their most popular Caribbean destinations, over 500 WestJet volunteers have partnered with LiveDifferent to provide secure and safe housing for over 50 families to date. WestJetters have also made some significant enhancements to the local communities around the Puerto Plata area including purchasing land for a new club for boys and girls, equipment for a local medical clinic, underwriting the salary of a doctor to be at the clinic three days a week for a year, refurbishing basketball courts for local youth, assisted with funding for hurricane relief and built a waste management center.
As the official airline partner of LiveDifferent, WestJet is proud to offer LiveDifferent Build volunteers a discount on their air travel when booking flights to volunteer with LiveDifferent.
“At WestJet, part of our mission is to enrich the lives of everyone in the WestJet world and clearly LiveDifferent shares that same value. We are very proud to be able to partner with LiveDifferent to enrich the lives of the people who live in the Dominican Republic and Mexico."
