Congratulations to AYEN for receiving the Sheila Lupson Healthy Communities Recognition Award.

Algoma Youth Engagement Network (AYEN)


The Algoma Youth Engagement Network (AYEN) seeks to foster a collaborative approach to youth engagement and development in Algoma.


The AYEN hosts monthly meetings, which are great for professionals to:


  • Collaborate with other professionals in our community focused on youth engagement.
  • Learn about youth development opportunities that are available.
  • Access resources and professional development opportunities.
  • Share best practices.
  • Problem-solve through common youth engagement challenges.
  • Foster community partnerships


Organizations come to the AYEN with different mandates, strengths, challenges and opportunities. Some members are new to youth engagement while others are highly experienced. This diversity is precisely what strengthens the memberships and creates opportunities for organizations to align together to maximize positive outcomes.


Come share your experiences and learn more about the great youth engagement opportunities in our community.


If you are interested in joining AYEN, contact the Youth Engagement Coordinator at 705-942-4646 ext 3043.

Youth Friendly Communities


The City of Sault Ste. Marie achieved the top Platinum Designation through the Play Works’ Youth Friendly Community Recognition program. This designation will be in effect until 2020.

Play Works, an independent third-party provincial organization, rates communities as youth friendly, depending on the activities it offers for the growth and development of youth ages 13 to 19 through play.
