February was a short but mighty month for our current youthexperts online group! We spent our meetings talking about mental health issues and what was important for each person and their communities. Part of our design lab process is to give space for what matters most to our youth, to have time to breathe and develop into bigger picture ideas. This group was SO passionate, worked SO hard and under specific time requirements as our meetings were two hours each week.
It was so amazing to see their ideas develop and form into something tangible. By the end of February we had landed on some really amazing ideas to focus on, and next month we will begin to create the content and decide the look and feel of the resource!!
In other youthexperts news, we got the green light for another year of projects! We begin in April and are pretty excited to see how things flow during this next year. Follow us at youthexperts.ca for updates, and if you’re interested in receiving any of the resources we’ve created, send us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
