CYPT 101 — Future meetings TBD

CYPT 101 is an introduction to the collaborative and work done in our community to move the needle on improving child and youth well-being. This is a great opportunity for newer participants to get up to speed from the perspective of a CYPT Steering Committee member and a general member. CYPT 101 is designed for those who are not yet, or less familiar with CYPT. Members are also encouraged to attend if they would like to learn about how to make the most of their involvement with CYPT. 



Equity Open Space — Future meetings TBD

These sessions are open to any member interested in systemic equity issues that affect children and youth, and meaningful actions that can be taken.
