Youth-to-Youth (Y2Y)

Grades 9 – 12

The Youth 2 Youth (Y2Y) program aims to support youth by creating a space where they can explore issues of concern together. The monthly sessions create a safe and inclusive environment for youth with Learning Disabilities to meet and share their struggles and strategies for success.

Participants connect with other youth with Learning Disabilities, and Youth Ambassadors are also present at the sessions to facilitate conversations and share their experiences living with a Learning Disability.
