youth-ci-300x97Youth CI is an initiative of Innoweave in partnership with Laidlaw Foundation, supported by the Government of Ontario. Youth CI supports groups of organizations to learn about, develop, and implement collective impact initiatives that directly improve outcomes for youth across Ontario.

Youth CI had another busy fall, with almost 30 collaboratives participating in eight workshops across Ontario, including two new communities, Niagara Region and Hastings County. New collaboratives across the province are now beginning clarity work around their objectives and Theories of Change. Significant progress has also been made for the many ongoing Collective Impact initiatives launched in prior rounds of Youth CI. They are moving toward building their measurement strategies and launch plans.
