Held at the Art Gallery of Hamilton on October 16 - 17, the PRO MBA Symposium brought together over 65 participants to share best practices for delivering services for youth in positive and transformative ways. Thank you to all participants for helping to make this years' symposium another success!
"I look forward to the MBA every year. The great people, the fun environment, makes it an amazing learning opportunity. Each year I take things away from the conference and implement it in my work." 2019 Delegate
"I was on the fence about attending this event as a provider in a small rural municipality that covers programming from 0 to 100 years. I feared that the focus would be on large urban centres and not relevant to the work we do in a rural setting. It was refreshing to see such a mix of participants from municipal recreation staff to the non- profit sector sharing stories with each other. It was immediately clear that youth are youth no matter where you go, and that while the provision of services may differ from place to place, young people will always want for a fun, safe and engaging space to call their own – and it doesn’t hurt to have food."
