Joint Webinar: Engaging youth expertise in substance use program and policy development

Date: March 11th, 2021 at 1pm PST

Title: Coping and hoping: engaging youth expertise

Description: This is a joint webinar hosted by McCreary in partnership with the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction. How do we create safe and accessible ways for youth who use substances to be engaged in program and policy development? Youth engagement refers to meaningfully and sustainably involving young people in decision-making that affects them. Meaningful youth engagement allows youth to take action, have their voice heard, and to actively participate in their own development.

Join us on March 11th as we explore the benefits, supports required, levels of participation and considerations for engaging youth who use substances.

  • A presentation from McCreary Centre Society’s Youth Research Academy (YRA) on the findings from a review of the literature entitled “Coping and hoping: Meaningful youth engagement practices that target low-resourced youth who use substances: Knowledge Summary”
  • Experiences and examples in action from the Improving Treatment Together project’s Youth Team Members
  • Youth panel discussion: an opportunity to discuss your youth engagement questions or strategies with speakers
  • McCreary’s Youth Research Academy
  • ITT Youth Team Members
