Written ByYouth Blast Team!
Our aim with Youth Blast is to ensure that youth workers and community service providers have immediate place online to share their resources within a network of likeminded service providers, and to provide a space online where youth can have direct access to resources and to make connections to make improvements in their lives.
Making the right connections is what we do. The new Youth Blast is a natural progression from manually sending out Email updates of programs and services for youth to your email lists. We now offer a one stop at www.youthblast.ca where users can get direct access to resources, events and activities that support young people while still maintaining our traditional email blast that provides a quick snap shot of feature and recent uploads and feature post to the site. New features include options to connect directly with the people/organizations that post on the within the site through a direct messenger. Also, opportunities to chat and discuss, and the ability to upload videos and audio along with picture formats (flyers).
At new Youth Blast we are excited about the future, we are excited about our public-private partnership with York Youth Coalition and look forward to expanding our network of partners and allies. We encourage you to let us know how we might be able to better assist in making connections between youth/families to service providers.
