A Provincial Exchange
Knowledge to Action
For Youth Wellbeing
KtA Exchange Themes
We invite you to join us in unpacking and exploring the following questions related to the three themes: The Youth. The Work. The System.
YouthREX has intentionally and strategically chosen to centre our first Provincial KtA Exchange on Youth Wellbeing on “The Youth. The Work. The System,” recognizing that youth wellbeing is interconnected to what is happening with youth, within youth work as well as within larger systems and contexts.
While youth work plays a critical role in closing opportunity gaps and achieving equitable outcomes for all youth, these important contributions are the result of successfully mitigating systemic variables and challenging contexts. These three dimensions: “The Youth. The Work. The System” are neither static nor siloed from each other. Rather, they are continuously growing and developing, interdependent in some ways, occasionally in synergy, and often times in tension with each other.
