Dear readers,

This newsletter presents a variety of new developments in Integrated Youth Services (IYS), as well as sources of information on the current state and future of IYS across Canada. In particular, we highlight the newest provincial brand for IYS, Huddle Manitoba, and a wonderful video from Manitoba youth on why it is needed.
HUDDLE, THE NEW BRAND NAME OF MANITOBA IYS
The Manitoba government and United Way Winnipeg have officially launched Huddle Manitoba, the new brand of Manitoba’s provincial IYS initiative. Watch this video to hear directly from youth about why they need Huddle.

The brand name Huddle, with the tagline Here for Youth, was chosen following a province-wide, youth-engaged branding process. The announcement also marked the official opening of four of the five new Huddle sites. GBF, through the Bell-GBF Partnership, is pleased to be a partner in supporting this important work which will have a transformative impact on how young people in Manitoba access the care they need.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR IYS IN CANADA
