On Friday, February 27th, we hosted our first Provincial community eXchange event in the Central Hub Region. Our four Hubs across the Province have also held eXchanges over the last 3 weeks. THANK YOU to everyone who attended one of our launch events and/or who has connected with us! 

These eXchanges were designed to introduce you to YouthREX, our Hubs, and the potential ways the YouthREX will be able to support you and the work you do. We shared lots of information about our 3 streams of work, our values and philosophy around how we work, and made sure to hear back from you, the community and our stakeholders. Highlights of what was shared is also covered in this blog post by Dr. Uzo Anucha, our Provincial Office Academic Director. You can also check out our presentation from the Provincial event here.

One of the highlights of our Provincial event was the 3 speaker x 3 minute community leader lightning panel – we were so grateful and inspired by the thought-provoking sentiments expressed by our speakers and members of the audiences who shared with us afterwards. We created a blog post featuring some key tweets from this portion of the event – click here to check it out.

We want to keep hearing from you, as we continue to create and design custom research and evaluation supports that reflect local experiences and needs. What would you like to learn more about? What are practical ways we can support your work with youth, whether at an individual, program, community or sector-context? Let us know via e-mail, twitter or you can even give us a call at 1.844.876.5433!
