Chilliwack’s Conversation on Children and Youth is coming up

Theme of the 2022 CYC event April 26-29 is ‘Reconnection, Reflection, and Reconciliation’

The theme of this year’s Conversation on Children and Youth is focused on ‘Reconnection, Reflection, and Reconciliation’ April 26-29 presented by the Chilliwack Child and Youth Committee (CYC).

Registration is open for the CYC’s 29th Annual Conversation on Chilliwack’s Children offering new teachings, best practices, and available resources from local, regional and provincial presenters focused on children, youth, and parents/caregivers.

The CYC event which is unique to Chilliwack brings together community and service providers from more than 30 agencies to discuss cutting edge practices and ideas in a collaborative model that the committee pioneered in Chilliwack.

It is known for building “cross agency partnerships, advocating for the communities health and safety, and identifying service gaps and solutions,” according to longtime participant Dan Bibby.

Organizers invite participants to the virtual and in-person workshops on Wednesday and Thursday, and the conference wrap-up lunch on Friday that will feature teachings by Grand Chief Steven Point, the former B.C. Lt. Governor.

Registration deadline is at 4:30 p.m. on April 20. Register through eventbrite: https://bit.ly/3x9zCuZ

Workshop participation links will be sent out separately from registration receipts, closer to the event.
