Room: Muskoka II

The workshop will continue to introduce/unpack the idea for Youth Advocate networks beginning to be implemented across our movement.  There will be discussion about the networks themselves as well as a look into how they fit into some larger plans for developing and equipping youth and young leaders.  And there will be discussion about next steps we need to take.
