Stepping Up

The Stepping Up resource, created by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services in Ontario provides information on youth leadership and ways to engage youth to volunteer more frequently. It describes the initial steps of providing more opportunities for youth to step up, harnessing their contributions and includes different opportunities around Ontario (4-H, Premier's Council of Youth Opportunities, etc).

Justice for Children and Youth

Justice for Children and Youth is a service that provides legal services for any youth under 18 in Ontario, including homeless youth up to the age of 25. Their website has options such as being able to talk to a lawyer and to learn more about their different initiatives such as Street Youth Legal Services. 

Youth Sector

This resource is published by the Chiefs of Ontario and encourages First Nations Youth to create their own youth councils so that their voices can be heard and experience leadership positions. The resource explains how First Nations youth may empower themselves and become advocates and provides information on developing a council.
