Today's youth

Research that focuses on youth is vital - the United Nations reports that half the world's population is under the age of 25. Youth are key actors in the evolving social, environmental, and technological changes that are shaping the world at an ever increasing pace. 

At the Centre for Youth & Society (CFYS), we design and conduct interdisciplinary research, promote collaboration with partners, and respond to emerging priorities affecting youth and their families. Our Centre unites researchers, students, and community partners (including youth led initiatives) toward youth well-being.

CFYS Response to COVID-19

In response to COVID-19, the Centre for Youth and Society has created a resource hub to centralize a list of community resources that has been created by different organizations, tips on maintaining physical health and well-being for children, youth and families, resources for online education, and postive stories.
