Our Core Team

Our volunteer Core Team members work together with the support of a lean and dedicated staff team who to coordinate our collaborative initiatives. Membership in the Core Team is open, non-hierarchical and in a constant state of renewal. People step in and step out depending on their own interests, availability and what is happening in the Collaborative.

Some of the organizations that have taken part recently include:

Our community

The full network includes over 200 grassroots youth-led initiatives, youth-serving organizations, and youth-friendly funding bodies from across the province, representing a range of sectors, cultures and geographies. Our members are innovators in a variety of youth-serving fields, including mental health, physical activity, anti-poverty, and anti-discrimination (such as homelessness, racism, gender inequity).


Our Trustee

Since formally starting, different host organizations have provided administrative support to the YSI Collaborative, including Motivate Canada from 2010-2011. Since 2012 we have been supported by Children's Mental Health Ontario. We acknowledge and appreciate this important contribution.
