Youth Wellbeing

YOUTHREX is part of Ontario’s Youth Action Plan to mobilize research about youth, increase understanding of positive youth development and invest in continuous quality improvement in Ontario’s youth programming.

As part of this framework, Stepping Up has identified 7 themes that reflect key areas of experience that support positive youth development:

  1. Health & Wellness
  2. Strong, Supportive Friends and Families
  3. Education, Training and Apprenticeships
  4. Employment and Entrepreneurship
  5. Diversity, Social Inclusion and Safety
  6. Civic Engagement & Youth Leadership
  7. Coordinated & Youth-Friendly Communities

Stay-tuned for YouthREX snapshots of key information about these seven themes that inform our work. In the meantime, please check out Stepping Up here.
