This guide will help you understand the youth perspective on what makes an effective youth ally. It provides a series of exercises that will:
• Guide you through a self-assessment process to determine your potential biases and explain how to set these biases aside before talking with youth about cannabis;
• Provide you with the values and principles for supportive communication, including practical ways to create a safe space for youth; and
• Lead you through the spectrum for using cannabis and support you in having judgment-free conversations about cannabis with youth.
