Summary: The Action Alliance for Youth Inclusion (AAYI) is a collaboration of youth-serving agencies and community partners working as allies for youth in high-risk situations. Through research and advocacy, they influence policy and take action to advance the social inclusion of youth. AAYI has created a set of suggested banning guidelines based on conversations with youth and the youth-serving sector. The YEG Youth Access Guidelines (YEG YAG), layout expectations for both youth and staff behaviour. In this presentation, you will learn who the AAYI partners are and hear about our research. You will see the guidelines for issuing, following up, and ending bans. Complimentary resources will be shared.
