Event description

Description

The Ministry of Children and Youth Services is hosting Community Engagement Sessions in Ottawa to talk about the Ontario Black Youth Action Plan.

The purpose of these sessions is to ensure community perspectives are represented in the implementation of the Plan. We invite all stakeholders doing work to support black youth in Ottawa to attend and participate in these sessions. We are especially looking for strong youth representation (under the age of 25) to participate in all three sessions.

There will be simunlateous translation into French at the sessions.

Day time Session [Courtside A Room]

12:00-2:00 pm. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the plan and have a discussion on the various priorities and opportunities to address the needs of young people in the Ottawa community through a collective impact approach.

Youth Engagement Session [Courtside B Room]

5:00-6:00 pm. There will be a youth session with front-line youth workers and youth (under the age of 25) . This will be a safe space for youth to share their thoughts learn more about the opportunities available to them under the plan. Please share this invite with youth and front-line youth workers in your network who would like to be part of this session.

Evening Community Session [Courtside B Room]

6:30-8:30 pm We will be holding a larger community session to a host those who are not able to make it during the day.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to reducing disparities for Black children, youth and families.

At each session, the Youth Opportunities Fund administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation will be in attendance, providing information on the funds available to invest in initiatives led by young Black leaders.
