Our Members

The Children and Youth Planning Table has open membership. If you believe in our shared vision, “Happy, healthy children and youth – today and tomorrow”, you’re welcome to join us.

 

 

There are more than 800 general members of the CYPT and more than 60 Voting Member organizations. Voting Member (or Partner) Organizations are organizations, based in Waterloo region, intentionally invested in the strategic direction and future of the Children and Youth Planning Table, and who seek intentional linkages to the work of the Table and their organization. Voting Membership is open to any organization who sees their work as aligning with the Vision of the Table moving the needle on at least one of the nine dimensions of child and youth well-being and who intentionally seeks to be a part of efforts to collectively mobilize as one system for children and youth in Waterloo Region that relentlessly strives to maximize well-being throughout generations.
