At the Children and Youth Planning Table of Waterloo Region (CYPT), we believe that a strong sense of belonging is foundational to child and youth well-being.
The work of the CYPT collaborative is focused predominantly in the area of Belonging for children and youth. For us, belonging includes three key areas of focus:
- Children and youth feeling valued, heard and included
