Children and Youth Planning Table Belonging Expo Event


Thank you to the hundreds of people who came out to the 2023 CYPT Belonging Expo! It was great seeing all of you, learning about the work some CYPT organizations do to support child and youth well-being, and having meaningful conversations about belonging.


Did you miss the keynote discussion at the Belonging Expo? Or maybe you want to re-watch the discussion about the importance of belonging?The recording of the conversation is now available on YouTube! Watch Oluseun Olayinka, Dr. Dillon Browne, and Youth Connector Kian discuss children & youth belonging from a grassroots and academic perspective.  Click here to watch the recording. 


The Expo was a day to remember — and what better way to do that than through photos? Access this Google Drive folder to see all the photos and videos we took at the event.
