On May 24th 2013 16 young leaders from the Youth Policy Advisory and Advocacy Group (YPAAG) spent three days at the Bark Lake Leadership Retreat Centre. This years group welcomed many new members while were happy to see familiar leaders as well. They spent three days building on teamwork skills through low ropes course challenges, tandem canoes, high ropes, and many other team building activities such as an amazing race! YPAAG continues to be a leader and go-to voice for many standing commissions. They meet with decision makers, influence legislation, and act as the unifying voice for youth in care in Ontario.

“From North, East, South and West,
We come together, to learn our best,
We may be new, different, divided,
… But through advocacy and teamwork we are UNITED
Youth Policy Advocacy & Advisory Group, you were definitely invited
We come together and in the end we’re YPAAG UNITED” -by: YPAAG Youth
