Youth Network Retreat

"The retreat was excellent. I would have loved to have stayed longer!" 

The Youth Network is a group that started six years ago and is aimed at creating lifelong friendships among the youth that attend - all of whom have been affected by adoption. Through this retreat and its variety of activities, we hope that the participants develop bonds of friendship as well as some leadership skills and tips for everyday living. The youth group is run by Brad Gibbons, Youth Liaison, at the Adoption Council of Ontario and he can be reached at brad.gibbons@adoptontario.ca.
