Communities Building Youth Futures - Request for Proposal

Across the City of Greater Sudbury and the District of Manitoulin, individuals and organizations have come together to develop a Collective Impact, system-wide solution for youth (aged 15 to 30) to build and act upon plans for the future of our youth. This initiative is known as “Communities Building Youth Futures”.  The focus of the initiative is understanding youths’ needs and challenges, while removing barriers to success and promoting positive pathways for youth while transitioning to adulthood.  This five-year project was made available through federal youth funding. Sudbury is one of 13 communities in Ontario funded for this initiative within the Nation.

This initiative is guided by a “Leadership Table” with a broad membership including but not limited to youth, children and youth organizations, education, employment organizations, public and private enterprise representatives. The intent is to develop strategies that enable young people to be engaged in their communities while successfully navigating transitions from youth to adulthood. These transitions might include the completion of a secondary school curriculum leading to a post- secondary education, apprenticeship experience or employment. The attached Request for Proposal (RFP) has been created to assist with the Branding and Marketing of work done within this Initiative. We ask that you please share this application with those that may be of interest in submitting an RFP.

Any questions should be sent to Nicole Minialoff, Youth Engagement Lead Coordinator  at

Our services are the best the North has to offer! Here’s what some families have to say about our services

“Staff is very helpful, provide educated answers to any questions asked, bilingual staff was helpful for myself; accommodating schedule, and overall, simply happy that there is in fact a service that is available altogether for my children’s needs.”

“Friendly, professional and accommodating.”

“During the assessments itself, it was well done. The atmosphere and procedure made the experience stress free for my son. The staff was amazing during the entire assessment. She was helpful, friendly, professional, optimistic, and encouraging. From the pre-assessment (intake) session, assessment at CCR, evaluation at the office and observation at school, she made us feel comfortable and positive about the assessment and results.”

“Thank you for helping our child and us in helping him.”
