We've designed this toolkit to highlight the benefits of youth engagement, help you implement youth engagement initiatives in your agency, and above all to showcase the many youth engagement success stories from across the province. Here are a few featured examples:

The Ethno-Cultural Youth Advisory Committee (EYAC) of the Youth Services Bureau (YSB) of Ottawa, is a peer-to-peer youth engagement committee that has existed since 2009. They focus on providing services and implementing programs that will help newcomer, refugee, second-generation, and racialized youth integrate and navigate more easily into Canada.

YouthSpeak is composed of a team of young people who share their stories and advocate to raise awareness about the challenges that young people face regarding mental health, bullying, addiction and among many other things. This is a great example of how youth can be engaged in advocacy and education. Get to know what YouthSpeak is all about.

The Jack Project is a national network of young people who are striving to transform the way we think, talk about and address mental health.
