YAA is a collective voice that strengthens and enhances the capacity of youth-serving agencies in Winnipeg
Youth-serving agencies working together to strengthen our communities
YAA builds on our member’s experience, knowledge and resources in order to increase our capacity for collective action and to speak as one voice on issues related to youth.
YAA supports training, research, sharing and learning in order to stay well-informed about issues and trends related to youth. We value continuous learning by collaborating and partnering with a range of stakeholders (the public, funders, policy makers, community leaders, and community agencies) so that together we can have youth issues on the public agenda.
YAA members commit to trusting each other’s expertise and having open and ongoing communication with the goal of better serving youth. YAA values that all decisions will be made by building consensus, therefore providing an equal voice to all members.
YAA values the development and implementation of a wide range of safe, constructive, inclusive and meaningful programs. Through participating in programming, youth will have the opportunity to develop important life skills and develop a sense of belonging to their community.
Youth Agencies Alliance is comprised of 15 youth-serving agencies, a collective that delivers over 230 programs reaching over 23,000 youth each year . . .
