Our Youth Engagement efforts seek to:

  • Make space for youth,
  • Build youth capacity, and
  • Support youth-led efforts in the community.

We encourage and challenge school, community, institution, and systems leaders to invite young people to the tables and spaces where priorities are being set, policies are being developed, and decisions that impact youth are being made.
