Youth Voice

This section is a dedicated forum for Youth Voice whether through videos, stories, poems, art, etc.

Have your say in changing the child welfare system!

The voices of young people are integral to shaping child welfare practice and informing systemic change.  Wilfrid Laurier University is currently carrying out a research project.  Although Brant FAS is not involved as an agency, it is an opportunity for some of the young people we work with to use their voice.  It is strictly voluntary.  You have the right to choose whether you participate and can follow up with the project lead directly.  Click here to see the project flyer.

Videos

Videos are available for organizations to use free of charge.  To view a copy of the “Listen to Me” video in its entirety, please contact Gissele at Gissele.Taraba@brantfacs.ca.
