Webinars
Interactive online conversations featuring youth workers, young people and researchers

YouthREX webinars create space for engaging, thoughtful and critical conversations on issues impacting youth wellbeing across Ontario.

Our goal is to introduce knowledge from research, practice and lived experience. Register for our upcoming webinar below, or view past webinar recordings.

Navigating Quicksand: Supporting Cross-Over Youth Thursday, February 27th | 5pm to 6:30pm EST

Join us for this critical conversation exploring the unique challenges faced by cross-over youth – young people involved in both the child welfare and criminal justice systems.

Dr. Judy Finlay and Justice Brian Scully will share their experiences as Co-Founders of the Cross-Over Youth Project, a four-year pilot project that set out to implement and evaluate a range of best practice options aimed at improving outcomes for cross-over youth.

We will also be joined by youth workers and young people (to be announced!) in order to understand the issues at play for cross-over youth, discuss practice approaches and strategies that can support their wellbeing, and centre the voices of young people.
