We happily waved goodbye to 2020 and spent the first month of 2021 preparing for our final group for this fiscal year. In our usual manner to accommodate the pandemic realities, we decided to host our design lab online, with a new group of young people across Canada. It’s not quite the same as being in-person, but we still have lots of laughs and truly love the co-creation process.
You may remember that we recently co-created Thrive: One Province at a Time, available in English, French and Hindi, a self care and personal growth journal, and Destination Life, available in English, French and Spanish, a game that inspires you to make the best choices to deal with the challenges life throws your way! Hopefully these resources can be helpful to you.
In our usual fashion, we put an open call out on our socials and our Canadian community did not disappoint! We were excited to see the applications pour in and we filled our design lab with folks from across the country! During the last week of January, we had meet and greets with each participant over zoom, and prepped to launch the next design lab! We start next month and will finalize everything by the end of March!
Wait! Don’t worry, we’re not done yet! April 1st will see us venture into another year of fresh groups, design labs, and exciting resources that have yet to be created! As always, make sure you take some time to check out our journey that we began in 2018 at youthexperts.ca If you would like to join in with future projects, make sure you’re following us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook at mindyourmind! You can see future applications and apply to join us-we can’t wait to see who we will meet!
