Do you believe in genuine youth engagement? We do.

StudentCommission

In our work as consultants and facilitators over the years, we’ve benefited from the active participation of youth in events we’ve attended, facilitated or organized. Whether it’s as speakers, panelists, storytellers, organizers or a multitude of other roles, youth participants bring new perspectives, original ideas, valuable input, unique skills and expertise, and fresh voices to any project.

And now our clients will get to benefit from youth participation as well!

Through our new partnership with the Students Commission of Canada, we will train four youth who are SCC team members in how to support and facilitate virtual engagement.

How will our clients benefit? We’re counting on our new partners to introduce different ways of gathering and facilitating that reflect a diverse population and help us design even more fabulous events for Neolé’s clients. We’re hoping they can show us a thing or two about “gamification” of virtual events and help with integrating new technology that enhances engagement and interaction in client events. And, as anyone who has ever called upon their resident tween or teen to solve a technical issue can attest, youth provide the BEST tech support ever!

We very much value diverse perspectives and meaningful youth engagement. We’re looking forward to our new partners becoming integral to the team in Fall 2021.

"NeOle's virtual facilitation services were an eye-opening experience for our globally-dispersed organization. The level of engagement and productive work that we accomplished rapidly turned skeptics into rabid fans, which is why we continue to hire Neolé." - J.Vehar, VP Products, Dale Carnegie & Associates
"I have had the pleasure of working with NeOlé in a number of settings over the past de​cade. Their creative and collaborative approach to training, group facilitation and problem solving greatly influenced the work we did with frontline workers across Ontario. I have adopted a number of their strategies into my own work, and never hesitate to call on NeOle to lead a session at our annual event." - P.Cross, Legal Director, Luke's Place
“I loved the use of the interactive technology for real-time engagement. And the facilitators were wonderful, intuitive, intelligent, able to manage group ebs/flows and adjust accordingly.” - Participant in a 3-day training on Leading Innovation
