Last Saturday, we had high school grads, upper year students and campus staff from 18 schools across Ontario at Wycliffe College. Our goal: to connect the class of 2019 to future "older siblings" going to the same campus in September. Grads had an opportunity to connect personally with those upper year students. They asked questions, gained the inside 411 about their specific campus. Parents had their own track to better

Transition 101 2019

Transition 101 is a collaborative event for high school grads hosted by Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship,  Power to Change, Ambassadors for Christ, the Navigators and the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec. We believe it is vital to connect graduating high school students going to college or university with a local faith community, both on campus and in a church. The purpose of Transition 101 is to facilitate those connections, not for any particular group,

The class of 2018 is about to finish high school. The next few months will be filled with excitement, anxiety and a dash of chaos as many head to college and university. Last Saturday, some of these high school grads connected with upper years heading to the same campus this September. Transition 101 is a collaboration with Ambassadors for Christ, Navigators, Inter Varsity and Power 2 Change. Our objective for

It was certainly an event to remember: the collaboration of Inter-Varsity, Power 2 Change, Ambassadors for Christ and CBOQ Youth, supporting grade 12 students in their transition into post-secondary life. This inaugural event laid the groundwork for a key Hemorrhaging Faith issue. The Hemorrhaging Faith report identified transition points, including those in between life stages, as one area where many people move away from the faith. For the high school

Talking "Transitions" with CYN

Many people have reviewed the findings of the Hemorrhaging Faith report. One key area the report found where students "fell through the cracks" was during transition periods, including the shift from high school to post-secondary studies. This year, CBOQ Youth, along with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, Power to Change and Ambassadors for Christ, is pleased to sponsor a portion of the Canadian Youth Network Youth Worker Lunch Resource Tour. Together, we're
