We are co-developing this initiative with working groups of young people from across Canada. The goal of Bridging Generations initiative is to provide platforms and safe spaces for people to share experiences and lift each other up in their work. We focus on bringing older and younger generations together as we have so much to learn from each other. We will facilitate mentorships and continue to have younge people co-create this initiative.

Bridging Generations and all programming offered by YesBC, adheres to the following:
YesBC Goals of Engagement
To create safe and ethical spaces that are focused on respect, dignity, and inclusion, free from discrimination and harassment
To give space for all voices to be heard - take space and make space for others
To seek understanding by sharing knowledge and through listening
To be willing to challenge ideas, not people
To prioritize the voices of individuals who haven't had the opportunity to participate, so everyone can be fully heard
To create a circle where solutions can be proposed and implemented
To bring generations together for collaboration and mutual respect
