WHAT IS THE YCRH?
The Young Canadians Roundtable on Health (YCRH) was created in 2013 based on one of the recommendations in The Sandbox Project's founding report, Reaching for the Top. The recommendation focused on creating a national advisory of youth leaders to participate in decision-making around child and youth health. The YCRH collaborates with industry, government, research, health practitioners and families. The YCRH’s activities happen across Canada, bringing together as many youth perspectives as possible. The YCRH operates in a unique model within the frame of the Sandbox Project, while being youth-run and youth-led. Working in close partnership with The Sandbox Project staff, YCRH leadership has the authority to make decisions and coordinate youth health projects independent of Sandbox approval. The YCRH gets its administrative and logistical support from the staff at the Sandbox office, and The Sandbox Project has responsibility for the legal and administrative obligations of the YCRH.
As a group, the YCRH is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of children and youth across Canada. The objectives of the YCRH are as follows:
Initiatives that the YCRH has organized and collaborated on over the past year include:
