Youth Track: Advocate

Youth Advocate Track (Advocacy)

This track will be primarily focused on Youth Advocates and Advocates for Youth who have learned to utilize their voice to impact change on a larger scale. This track is based on the premise of advocacy, and will center around the development of recommendations necessary to support the transition from care to independence. Participation in the youth track will culminate in the development of a position paper on transition to and from aftercare. 

Participants will have the opportunity:

  • to know and understand the history and impact of the Convention on the Rights of the Child
  • to know and understand how to apply their experience in care in a collective voice to make
  • Youth Advocates will collectively participate in the development of a position paper centered around the rights of the child in the context of transitioning from care and recommendations for transitions from care
