Every fortnight YouthAdvance will be presenting at a Zoom meeting for all OPEN participants.  A topic will be presented each fortnight and then we will have a Q & A session. We would like to use the opportunity for idea sharing between our participants as well.

You don’t have to join every meeting – just the ones with a topic you want to hear about or anytime you have a question for us!

We hope to see you there! Zoom meeting joining details and dates are available below. A recording of the Zoom session will also be available.
