What is the Youth Engagement Advisory Hub?
The Hub is a weekly drop-in wellness space for youth aged 13 to 25 — complete with snacks, access to technology, comfy couches and art supplies. This is also a place where youth can get information and support accessing community resources to meet their needs (including resources related to mental health, housing, employment, sexual health, support for LGBTQ+ youth and more). Along with other youth to connect with, there are also supportive staff in the space available, including a Wellkin therapist, a Community Resource and Support Worker and our Youth Engagement Facilitator.
We are also proud to offer recordings from past Hub events, which will be uploaded shortly after each session. Please view our audio and video recordings below:
