Mindyourmind is looking to connect with youth through an upcoming online design studio to obtain feedback on the Be Safe App. This is an amazing opportunity for youth to be part of change, and to help make the Be Safe App more effective to deal with issues in their community.  If you know of youth who have used the Be Safe App and are interested, please direct them to this link.  Youth will be rewarded for their time.  Submitted by Lily Lee, Transition Facilitator, Youth Habilitation Quinte Inc.
