ysi updates: Save the date!

With the summer sun shining down (and our Algoma gathering now in the rear-view mirror), YSI is already busy gearing up for our Fall Stakeholder Gathering, which will be happening on November 28-30.

This year, we'll be exploring how we can work collaboratively to address real-time challenges and create change in youth organizing on individual, community and systems levels. The guiding question as we prepare is: What kind of learning needs to happen in order to make collaboration possible? 

If you have some answers to the question, please let us know!  We always welcome people to share their stories, co-host a session, and contribute their best thinking and doing to help host powerful gatherings. 

We'll be sending you more details about the Gathering by the end of the summer.

And stay tuned in the upcoming months as YSI embarks on a mission to learn more about what is really happening in the youth-led organizing field.  We'll continue to partner with Thinking Rock Community Arts in Sault Ste. Marie, as they grow the Algoma Nest and keep sparking the flame of youth organizing in the region.

And, as part of our Developmental Evaluation project, we'll be reaching out to you and your networks to learn about what it takes to make you feel empowered to take action about issues that matter to you and your communities. We look forward to connecting in person and through a survey, which our DE team is currently developing.

Until we connect again, wishing you a wonderful summer!
