‘Opportunity Youth’ are 16-to-24-year-olds who are not engaged in school or work, and face barriers to education and employment.

The Child & Youth health network has 5 youth partners aged 15-17 who are active partners, who are disengaged from the education system and have 1st-hand experiences with the challenges of finding the supports they need. These youth are meeting regularly to develop an idea for delivering youth services in the capital region.

Their idea is receiving favorable attention from local practitioners and funders~.

Interestingly, their idea also aligns with the guidelines set out by FSG in their paper Collective Impact for Opportunity Youth, as demonstrated by the following diagrams:
