HERE’S HOW THE HOSTS DESCRIBE THIS WEBINAR:

How has COVID-19 affected how youth programs are supporting and working with young people? How are youth programs physically distancing while ensuring social connectedness for youth? How are the needs of youth, families, and communities changing as a result of the pandemic? What challenges and opportunities exist for the youth sector?

YouthREX launched an interactive online conversation series on how the Ontario youth sector is adapting to shifting contexts as a result of COVID-19.

When the pandemic hit, youth programs did not just pack up but continued their relentless search for ways to keep supporting better outcomes for Ontario’s youth!

Each instalment features different youth programs and advocates to explore how they are pivoting their approaches to youth engagement, programming, and advocacy; the issues that are emerging as priorities in their work; the lessons they are learning (and unlearning); and ways they are adapting in real time during this unprecedented period.

This conversation, co-hosted by Kathe Rogers (YouthREX’s Knowledge Exchange Manager) and Cyril Cromwell (YouthREX’s Learning and Development Manager), featured Josie Fung (Executive Director, I-Think) and incoming University of Toronto student Laurel Gain. Learn how I-Think adapted their program to support educators physically disconnected from their classrooms, and from one another.

I-Think is innovating to help build a resilient education system in Ontario that prepares the next generation of thinkers for a future of remarkable possibilities. I-Think is a community of curious, generous, and relentless educators who transform student thinking with a proven, community-built approach to real-world problem solving. Follow I-Think on Twitter.
