Welcome! On behalf of the Acting Together:Community University Research Alliance (AT-CURA) team at Kwanlten Polytechnic University, Dr. Gira Bhatt and Dr. Roger Tweed invite you to the City of Surrey in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, for a major two day international conference on “Youth Strengths and Prevention of Delinquency and Gang Involvement: Academics and Community Acting Together,” July 23-25, 2014.
The conference delegates will learn about AT-CURA’s successes and share research and practice focusing on youth strengths to develop or improve youth programs and public policy. Delegates will include academic researchers, service providers, parents, teachers, youth, police agencies and government policy makers.
July is a great month to visit our province. While you are here, take in some of the attractions of our host city, Surrey, and also visit Vancouver. Or, this might be the year for an extended family holiday in our diverse and often breath-taking province.
As a collaborative network of 11 Community Partners and 4 Academic Partners, we look forward to welcoming you next July. Please join us for a very rich and important conference. Acting Together – Community-University Research Alliance (AT-CURA) is an award-winning, multi-year, strength-based project aimed at preventing youth gang involvement. It is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada.
