Aging Out of Care - Listening to Understand

 

What happens when you age out? Who's there for you, and what do you need? Why are we so dedicated to making change after we leave the system?

 

In BC, youth age out without the support they need. We want to change that, and finding allies starts with educating them about our campaign. On April 24th, we gathered with dozens of community members at 312 Main St in Vancouver. 5 youth from care shared their stories in a panel moderated by Violet-Rose. This event is about community, and we've got some photos to share.
