CEYE is a network of youth, organizations, and academics focused on generating evidence and best practices on youth engagement programs, initiatives, and interventions.

CEYE has developed a youth engagement definition for the Canadian context as well as a comprehensive youth engagement framework.

In 2011, the Students Commission of Canada identified a consistent gap in the capacity of Canadian youth-serving organizations to effectively tell their story.

The SCC therefore launched the Sharing the Stories (StS) research and evaluation platform.

StS includes reliable and valid quantitative and qualitative evaluation tools.

More importantly, it includes a team of coaches and analysts who support organizations to effectively tell the story of their programs.

For more information, please visit the StS website: http://www.sharingthestories.ca/ As a member of our team you will enjoy a dynamic and supportive work environment.

We have a dedicated staff team that care deeply about the young people and organizations we partner with.

At the SCC, you will have the opportunity to try your hand at a number of tools and projects, ensuring diversity and breadth of work.

We are known to work hard, but we have fun doing it Finally, as a Network Coordinator you will play a critical role in amplifying youth voice in Canada in order to improve programs and drive systems change.

Sharing the Stories Vision Sharing the Stories is focused on building an anonymized database of information for youth, the youth sector, policy-makers, and funders.

The information gleaned from the database supports: 1.

Youth Voice: StS provides a platform for young people to have their voices heard in the programs and initiatives that work with them.

2.

Youth Sector: StS provides a platform for organizations to learn about what’s working in their programs and what might need to be improved.

3.

Policy-Makers: StS identifies trends in the youth-serving sector and shares them with policy-makers so that policy can be informed by evidence.

4.

Funders: The evidence generated from StS informs funders on the effectiveness of their programs.

Sharing the Stories is organized around reporting on change on Three Levels using CEYE’s Youth Engagement Framework.

· The individual level focuses on reporting on changes (positive and negative) for individual youth and adult allies.

· The social level focuses on reporting on changes (positive and negative) in relationships.

For example: how youth interact with other youth or how youth interact with other adult allies.

· The system level focuses on reporting on changes (positive and negative) for programs, organizations, and policy-makers.

For example, how youth influence program design or how youth influence government policy.
