We get it: last year was tiring. Just as we were getting used to living virtually, we had to return to our in-person lives, and back again. We’ve had to adapt to both virtual and in-person realities this year, and it’s been just as scary and tiring as it has been exciting. It’s why we want to best support you with your mental health advocacy work as we move further into 2022. Enter our 10th installment of the National Jack Summit. While keeping safety, inclusion, and relevance top of mind in planning this event, we delivered the National Summit in a hybrid format, with programming and activities offered both virtually and in-person. This year, we:

  • Invited a portion of delegates to travel to Toronto and experience the summit in-person.
  • Used Hopin as our event management platform, which helped us create a seamless and connected experience for delegates attending virtually and in-person;
  • Committed to making the National Jack Summit experience a meaningful one for Francophone youth. In addition to making live translations available through our event platform, this summit included bilingual speakers, dedicated space to connect with fellow Francophones about goals and ideas, and other pieces of programming offered in French.
