YES! Youth Empowering Solutions

In the last OHPE Bulletin on Youth, we included a list of web resources taken from the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. We discovered an interesting Ontario-based site that appears to be focused on involving youth in electronic forums to discuss key issues around the world. The web-site, although it has won Internet awards, can be difficult to navigate and understand. Keep on trying - the concept is interesting.
