We have been planning, designing, and hosting youth gatherings for more than 25 years and these are all anchored in core values and ways of doing things that allow for young people to have fun, share their expertise and offer concrete calls to action or recommendations. 

Taking care of participants & our team at in-person events means we recognize each area of our being matters: our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. We believe it is important to demonstrate the care we have for those we engage with in helping everyone knows they matter. Our health and wellness supports, including our Health and Wellness Strategy, are anchored in creating the safest spaces possible.

We are confident we are ready to welcome youth and allies back to Three Things in-person gatherings.

All expenses and costs are covered for the selected students.

Insights and Experiences of Black and Students of Colour

Black and other youth of colour often face discrimination, bias, lowered expectations, and racism in school settings, and within youth serving organizations. This important process will include space for students to share what has worked for them in the Pathways program and what hasn’t, from their perspective and based on their lived experiences as Black and students of colour.
