Partnering in Practice: Preventing Social Polarization AND Mind the Gap!

Edmonton, Alberta
Nov 30-Dec 3, 2018

This conference will be comprised of two interrelated sections - the first section, Prevention in Practice, will resemble a more traditional academic conference. The second section, Mind the Gap!, will bring together practitioners from diverse sectors and youth leaders to engage in an interactive two-day exercise to facilitate connections and knowledge sharing between them.

Event Services

Our team can work with you and your organization to plan, develop, execute and evaluate your entire event. One of our strengths in youth-focused event planning and management is being able to quickly, efficiently, and effectively bring together everything needed to ensure the success of your program.

Workshops

We work with partners and youth to deliver interactive capacity building opportunities for all audiences. Workshops are tailored for audiences based on the content shared.

Conferences

We deliver one to seven day conferences for youth and adult allies. The conferences are geared to generating and influencing community and systems level changes through direct youth recommendations and the development of community action projects.

Sharing the Stories Knowledge Exchanges

An opportunity for youth, adult allies and academics to come together to review the research and trends generated from the Sharing the Stories research and evaluation platform.

Fine-Grain Interactions

The one-to-one or one-to-a-few interactions between youth and/or between youth and adults. These interactions accumulate and can often result in bottom-up changes to policies and programs. We foster these interactions by working with other partners to create organic spaces and places for youth and/or adults to connect with one another. We support weekly youth groups across our network of partners.
