What?

In the fall of 2021, mindyourmind hosted another youth mentorship design lab. The youth split into two groups to focus on different projects, one being self care kits designed for local youth and the other, a mental health calendar with thoughtful journal prompts.

Why?

Through past design labs we have learned that there are many youth across Canada who want to make a difference and help other young people, they just need the platform and support to get started. We have found that these mentorship design labs are the perfect way to get youth inspired and begin their helping journeys. Plus, our previous mentorship design labs were incredibly successful so we were keen to host another one!

Who?

The mindyourmind team and ten awesome youth!

When?

From September to October 2021, we met twice weekly over Zoom.

Where?

Online meetings with youth tuning in from across the country!

Youth Partners

  2. What do you hope will come from this resource and why?
  3. What is your favourite donut?
