Learn about (and do!) community-based research
Share thoughts and ideas about issues and transform them into action!
Make positive change in the community, while doing exciting activities and networking
Improve critical thinking skills through innovative and participatory activities
Leadership, enhanced academic achievement, increased social and civic engagement are some of the positive outcomes that youth experience after taking part in NOISE, along with increased knowledge about research and critical thinking!
While NOISE varies in each YouthREX Hub offering the programming, activities are always designed to increase knowledge and build capacity around Community-Based Research:
The primary objective of the CBR training is to increase knowledge of and familiarity with community-based research through a twelve week program (40+ hours) focused on CBR, critical thinking, communication and leadership. This programming allows youth to ask key questions that can inform how youth services can better support youth wellbeing in their communities. This program is being offered in our Southwestern, Eastern and Northeastern Regional Hubs for 2016.
Participating in NOISE also provides opportunities for youth to contribute to the shaping of YouthREX’s Evaluation and Knowledge Mobilization work by contributing to YouthREX’s activities as an intern or by extending YouthREX’s work by undertaking an independent social action project. Internships with YouthREX Regional Hubs will be available for a limited number of NOISE participants.
We are not accepting any new NOISE fellows at the moment. Please check back!
