2018 Youth Talks: Hear Us Out!
On March 3, 2018, the Youth Talks Hear Us Out! event was the first youth-led event of the HYI: North Oakville Youth Development Council. It took place on March 3rd, 2018 and was based around a Tedx Talk type idea. Roles were reversed, as youth took the stage and raised adults’ awareness about topics that mattered to them it provided a few learning opportunities for adults too, like how to draw and use technology. Over 100 participants attended this event.
Youth Talks Hear Us Out! also highlighted the 5 elements of Developmental Relationships which was a foundational piece of the NOYDCs work to increase youths’ wellbeing which included:
Expressing care to our youth through listening to their ideas and what they had to say,
Sharing power with them,
Challenging their growth, and
Expanding their possibilities!
