Get inspired at Ontario's largest training event for managers and staff of community-based services aimed at youth aged 13-19. The MBA Symposium is designed to engage, enlighten, and empower staff of youth development programs in order to improve the quality of youth services. MBA - it's the More and Better Approach to working with youth!

"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."
