Stepping Stones: A Resource for Educators working with youth aged 12 to 25

Stepping Stones: A Resource on Youth Development has been created to serve as a tool to guide the development and delivery of high quality services and supports for youth across the province. It was created by the Ontario government in broad consultation with researchers, youth, community leaders and service providers.

Stepping Stones can support and enhance the work of educators working with youth:

  • by providing summaries of developmental milestones that can be used to plan curriculum-based lessons
  • by providing important information about the context in which youth develop
  • by providing messages from youth themselves about what they want adults to know about them and how adults can act as the supports that they need them to be
  • as a useful reference and communication tool when talking with parents, families and caregivers, child and youth workers
