Youth Engagement Haliburton
Point in Time, with support from its community partners, has taking the leap towards engaging youth in the community as advisors and leaders!
Youth Engagement Haliburton (YEH):
- will empower youth as valuable partners in addressing and making decisions about issues that affect them personally and/or they believe are important
- will focus on mental health promotion to reduce the adverse impact of stigma associated with mental health concerns and to increase the resiliency of youth in our county
- will be free to all participants
The project will include activities such as symposiums on issues facing local youth. This may include topics such as tobacco exposure/use, substance or alcohol misuse, eating disorders etc. An engagement activity may also be a social event such as a dance or a fun day in the park.
