Do you know an incredible youth in or from care, FBCYICN Alumni Member or adult ally to young people in and from care? Well, nominate them for an FBCYICN Achievement Award already!
Each year, FBCYICN gives out four awards to young people and adults who have contributed to the lives of youth in and from government care in B.C. FBCYICN seeks to acknowledge the achievements of adult allies, alumni from care, and youth in and from care who work to improve themselves or their community. These awards are given out annually at one of our Steering Committee Meetings (SCM).
The FBCYICN will give out the following awards at our SCM on February 12-14, 2016:
Above and Beyond Award – This award is given to a supportive adult who has gone above and beyond to support for and/ or improve the lives of young people in and from government care in BC.
Outstanding Alumnus Award – This award is given to an Alumnus of the Federation of BC Youth in Care Networks (FBCYICN) who has demonstrated positive commitment and participation in the Network.
Outstanding Contribution Youth Award – This award is given to a young person who has made significant contributions to their community.
Outstanding Personal Achievement Youth Award – This award is given to a young person who has overcome significant personal obstacles and has committed to self-improvement.
