Youth in Care Canada is a national, charitable organization driven by youth and alumni from child welfare authorities across Canada. YICC exists to voice the opinions and concerns of youth in and from care.
Since 1985 we have engaged young people in and from care, and those who work with them, in research, policy development, and the training of caregivers and child welfare professionals; we have assisted in and supported the development of provincial and community-level youth in care networks across Canada; and we have helped to further the national and international youth in care networking movement.
YICC membership consists of youth in government care, youth transitioning out of care, and alumni from care, as well as organizations and allies that support youth in Canada and that play a role in child advocacy.
