About YouthREX:

YouthREX is a province-wide initiative based at York University with five regional hubs across Ontario that promote the integration of research evidence and evaluation in the development and delivery of Ontario’s youth programs. The five regional hubs are housed at King’s (South-Western), Carleton University (Eastern), York University (Central), Lakehead University (North-Western), and Laurentian University (North-Eastern).

The mission of YouthREX@Kings is to provide research & evaluation resources, supports, and services to youth serving organizations in order to improve wellbeing outcomes for youth in Ontario. The focus will be on three areas: knowledge mobilization, capacity building, and customized evaluation supports.

YouthREX is primarily funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services with extensive contributions from York University and the four partner universities (King’s, Lakehead University, Laurentian University, and Carleton University).
