In 2019, CYPN achieved foundational milestones in ‘turbo-charging’ our impact as a community collective. Together, we:

developed a CK CYPN ‘Connector Team’ which acts as support for the Chair and an Advisory Team for the CYPN

engaged CYPN Leaders in discussions on their ‘vision’, readiness for change, priority themes, and high-level range of options for network models

identified 4 priority themes which create a ‘framework’ for the key ingredients of what matters to the CYPN:

1. Family Voice   2. Equity & Access   3. Partnerships & Innovation   4. Data & Knowledge Management

CYPN Meetings

Generally, CYPN meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. For any members or guests who would like to present ideas, projects, etc. to the team, and create discussions resulting in actionable items, please connect with kellye@chatham-kent.ca
