APH's Youth Engagement Model


The creation of an agency adopted Youth Engagement and Development (YED) framework demonstrates Algoma Public Health’s commitment to incorporate YED as a way to achieve our strategic directions and Ontario Public Health Standards.


Our goal is to maximize positive youth outcomes by creating meaningful opportunities for youth to contribute to their community in a manner that facilitates the development of competencies, confidence, character, and connections to family, peers, and community.


The agency’s YED framework includes young people between the ages of 10-24. Exceptions to expand the age range beyond 24 can be made as needed to support other funding or program guidelines for young people.
