Youth Central is excited to offer youth engagement resources and learning opportunities to organizations, members of the community, and schools. Thank you RBC for supporting this initiative.

As a recognized leader in youth programming, our goal is to share our knowledge and expertise to strengthen your ability to meaningfully work with young people and to empower young people to be leaders and active citizens. We currently provide training in the form of webinars and in-school presentations.

Youth Central’s webinars are open to all members of the public and serve to enhance youth engagement practices. These webinars pull upon our 25 years of experience specializing in the field, and each session focuses on different aspects of youth engagement. Below is a biography of our presenter, Andrew Phung, who facilitated the webinars.
