Helping Create Youth Change Makers In Algoma

Krista Bissiallon, formerly Urban Indigenous Youth for Change, Project Assistant (SEE/NORDIK),  has landed an influential job to help youth in the Algoma region. As the Algoma Regional Lead for the Youth Social Infrastructure (YSI) Collaborative, Krista will be part of a local and provincial team responsible for coordination and implementation of new local youth programs, including the development of a youth-organizing hub. She will carry on her community-minded work building a local network of volunteers, individuals and organizations to better support the capacity of youth organizers to make positive change within the Algoma region.

YSI amplifies and accelerates the conditions for youth organizing in Ontario by convening, connecting, cultivating, and supporting people, organizations and communities. The YSI Collaborative began in 2009 with the Laidlaw Foundation, Art Reach, TIDES and Ontario Trillium Foundation’s identification that youth organizers and youth engagers from various sectors remained unconnected and had no underlying infrastructure to share learning and support. A volunteer­run network until 2013, YSI is evolving into a small youth­driven organization that drives and enables networked capacity­building around placed­based organizing and young people’s leadership and engagement in Ontario.

YSI has tons of different ways for organizations and/or youth to be part of this ever growing network. If you are interested in reaching out, you can contact Krista at (
