This report summarizes findings from an evaluation of the Youth Action Alliance of Manitoulin Island (YAA MAN). The Youth Action Alliance (YAA) program was an Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport (MHPS) youth engagement initiative that focused on youth engagement, smoking prevention, and raising awareness of tobacco issues. This summative evaluation was conducted to learn about the processes in and results of establishing and operating a YAA on a reserve.
