YOUTH IN CARE NETWORKS
Across Canada, there are a number of local, regional and provincial Youth In Care Networks and groups. These networks give youth opportunities to speak out on important issues regarding being in the system, develop important life skills, and make lasting friendships with other youth who have similar life experiences.
Each network is autonomous, relying heavily on the support and direction of the youth in care members and volunteers. A few examples of projects that networks run include weekly support group meetings, welcoming packages and luggage drives, rights awareness and education, and independence training.
