Join us in celebrating BC Child & Youth In Care Week

Proclaimed by the province of British Columbia in 2011, BC Child & Youth In Care Week (BCCYICW) is a time for everyone in communities across the province to stand in support and celebration of our province’s incredible, diverse young people in government care.

Youth in and from care advocated for this week–now in its fifth year–so their brothers and sisters in care could grow up feeling celebrated for their diverse talents and accomplishments, surrounded by a supportive community who stands with them. They also wanted to raise awareness about the barriers they face and fight the stigma that comes with being a “foster kid.”

Please join us in celebrating this important week and these amazing kids!
