The CCR Youth Network is thrilled to announce the return of the Youth Action Gathering (YAG)! Taking place in person from September 29 to October 1st in Montréal, QC, this year’s YAG will focus on the theme of: Embracing Youth Inclusion and Diversity!

A one-of-a-kind event for young newcomers and allies to meet in-person, the Youth Action Gathering (YAG) offers workshops, activities, and training in a friendly, supportive, and accessible space on a variety of topics that concern young people. Youth participants will collectively decide what key issues the CCR Youth Network should advocate for through sharing, learning, together strategizing and identifying common challenges youth newcomers face, and develop action plans and to address these challenges.
