A Provincial Exchange

The Youth.

Knowledge to Action
For Youth Wellbeing


The movement of knowledge to action requires opportunities for people to come together and learn with and from each other.

The goal of this Knowledge to Action (KtA) Exchange, “The Youth. The Work. The System,” organized by the Youth Research and Evaluation eXchange (YouthREX), is to bring youth sector stakeholders from across the province of Ontario together to share and engage with practice-relevant knowledge from research, youth work practice and lived experiences.

This KtA Exchange for Youth Wellbeing offers a learning space that facilitates moving knowledge to action that supports and improves youth wellbeing. This event will provide youth sector stakeholders (youth workers, policymakers, and researchers) continuing education and networking opportunities.

The KtA Exchange is free and open to any youth sector stakeholder across the province of Ontario. YouthREX has a limited number of travel bursaries available for youth sector stakeholders from outside Toronto who would like to attend but may not have the financial means to do so.

We are also hosting three pre-Exchange workshops for in-depth learning on select topics, as well as a post-conference Design Day (details TBA). Both days will be open for a limited number of participants, so please register early.
