It is common for a young person in or from care to feel alone or isolated. You may have aged-out of care and found that you’ve lost whatever connections you might have had with your family of origin, your community, or your culture. Perhaps you’re doing well and need a mountain-top from which to shout about your accomplishments. Maybe you need a peer or adult mentor. As a former youth in care, you may want to be a mentor to youth who are currently in the system. Whatever your reasons for seeking connections, we hope you can do so through Youth in Care Canada.
We have developed a number of mechanisms to help youth in and from care to make connections, receive support, or become involved to help make positive and constructive changes to the Child Welfare System.
