BC Child and Youth in Care Week
BC Child and Youth in Care Week is coming up next week! We have some great virtual events coming up to celebrate youth in and from care this year!
About BC Child and Youth in Care Week
Fed staff and youth, along with other organizations, worked together with the Ministry of Children and Family Development to create the first ever BC Child and Youth in Care Week in 2011 —the first of its kind in Canada! Every year since, we have worked in partnership with ministries, partner organizations, and youth and alumni to organize BC Child and Youth in Care Week.
The BC Child and Youth in Care Week Committee works to raises awareness about about the barriers youth face and fight the stigma that comes with being a “foster kid,” supports communities to celebrate children and youth in care through celebrations and promotional materials, and celebrates children and youth in care with awards.
BC Child and Youth in Care Week (BCCYICW) is a time for everyone to stand in support and celebration of our province's incredible, diverse young people in government care.
