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 Richard Marsella, Executive Director, and Vanessa Chase, Program Manager, Jane Finch, from Regent Park School of Music. Learn how Regent Park School of Music has had to shift the ways in which they work with youth, families, and communities, how they are offering the benefits of a community music program online, and how approaches to music education change when students and teachers are unable to meet in person.

Regent Park School of Music is a community music school in Toronto that gives 1,000 kids a year a rich and rewarding music education by removing the financial obstacle. For over 20 years, they have seen that the study of music allows young people to flourish creatively, personally, and academically, enriching their lives and future prospects.
