The Fed’s Outreach program connects with youth and community organizations to let youth in and from care and their allies know who we are and what we do, raise awareness about the needs, issues, ideas, and experiences of youth in and from care and advocate for change, and build allies who can become part of and support the youth in care community.
How do you spread holiday cheer to youth in and from care all over BC? By mail! Along with our large Fed Family made up of organizations, adult allies, and other youth, we’re building Holiday Care Kits to send to youth in and from government care across the province!
Fed Connects is a virtual space that offers youth in and from government care a place to come together, build skills, and access information.

Power Pages is a provincial magazine connecting youth in and from care, service providers and caregivers across BC. It's a platform for young people to express their concerns and experiences, share their voice and connect with a provincial network of youth in and from care and their allies.
Like all young people, youth in and from care are diverse individuals with their own goals, stories and talents; however, their experience in care means they face specific challenges and barriers. It can sometimes be hard for young people to find someone to talk to about their struggles or their dreams and goals.
Our retreats bring youth in and from care from all across the province together to learn life skills, have fun, build lasting friendships, direct the work of the organization, contribute to government consultations, and build a provincial community.
