"Youth are natural visionaries. They can imagine – i.e., see – how their community can be better, healthier, stronger, more vibrant and inclusive" (Heartwood Center for Community Youth Development).

Thriving, healthy communities are communities that involve youth in decision making, support youth action, and build on youth leadership capacity.

We take a for-youth-by-youth approach and work with a wide range of youth and youth service providers across the province to build healthier, inclusive communities.
