June was a busy and productive month for youthexperts and our team. Not only were we continuing to bring together the content for Growth, our journal workbook, but planning and coordinating is underway for our next Youth Design Lab. Our team was also preparing for a transition in terms of our staff members, as two of our team members Justin and Simran, are moving into the next chapter of their lives, and we will be welcoming two new team members in July! Check back on our blog to learn more about our new staff.
The Growth booklet is almost complete, and we look forward to sharing it with you. For those who don’t fully remember, our youth team wanted to share ways to grow on deeply important life topics. Their focus of this current booklet is Finding Your Strengths, Discovering Implicit Bias and Unlearning, Coping with Challenges, and Imagining Your Future. Content writing wrapped up and now the book is being designed – selecting fonts, choosing images and bringing to life this amazing resource! Learn more about the young people who participated in this project, CSC Online Design Lab, Spring 2021.
Next month we will begin our next youthexperts group project! You’ll want to hear what happens as another group of young people across Canada come together and make magic!
