We are the participants of the YMCA Community Action Network (YCAN). YCAN supports youth as we develop and deliver service projects that respond to issues and needs, that matter to us, in our local community.
With support from Kelsey Beck from the YMCA and various community partners, we have created this event to facilitate open space conversations between the mental health, new comers and refugees, and LGBTQ2S+ communities as well as their allies. Our hope is that these conversations build understanding and awareness among them.
In addition to the open space conversations, we will also be joined by community partners who will have resources that are beneficial to these communities.
