Fostering Change is super excited to invite you to register for our Policy Strategy Meeting and Celebration Extravaganza!!!
#Supportthe700 is our work to increase awareness and action in service of youth leaving foster care. Our "Candidates Pledge" was signed by 41 MLA's, and 147 BC Election Candidates, to further improve support for youth in and from care. This pledge included committing to meet with young leaders this fall and to advocate for increased funding for youth aging out of foster care.
Youth aging out of care deserve to see action from the people we elect to serve them. The Policy Strategy Meeting and Celebration Extravaganza is a unique opportunity for young leaders in and from care and their allies to connect with each other, increase their skills and knowledge around policy and political advocacy, identify policy priorities and prepare to meet with elected officials and decision makers in Victoria. The goals for the day are to celebrate all the amazing young leaders while building momentum towards the youth policy solutions day in Victoria on October 24th (organized in partnership with First Call).
This event is free and we will provide:
- Optional transportation to and from the Musqueam Cultural Centre*
- An opportunity to meet and connect with other young leaders and activists
- Workshops designed to ensure that everyone is prepared, committed and excited to participate in the policy day in Victoria
