The month of May has come and gone so quickly, it’s hard to believe that summer is going to be here soon! This month our team worked together to create content for Growth, in case you missed our April blog, our youthexperts team co-created a self-help workbook with four main sections.

Didn’t November fly by? We can’t believe how close it is to wrapping up 2020 and our CSC projects! You may remember that our most recent online Design Lab that happened in August brought about the co-creation of a book, Thrive: One Province At A Time and a game (stay tuned next month to learn more).
This month our team worked diligently on bringing to life Thrive: One Province At A Time, to life
