Our one-to-one support program offers young people in or from care an opportunity to receive guidance about different barriers they may be facing. We offer support by listening, asking questions, providing referrals, creating support plans to meet individual needs and individual advocacy to help young people best navigate the system.
Staff are not trained counselors but can assist young people to reach their own decisions about how they can overcome these barriers. Young people can talk to us about finding housing, employment and training opportunities, educational goals, relationship issues, addictions, concerns with their experiences in care, and navigating the MCFD complaints process etc. Young people from across BC can access support through email, Facebook, Skype, our toll free number or face to face.
