An enthusiastic group of youth from Family and Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region got together to create a video entitled ‘Youth Leaving Care’. The video captures the realities of being a youth in care facing the prospect of ‘aging out’ of the child welfare system. It is their attempt to add their voice to a provincial campaign advocating for additional supports for youth leaving care. For more information on how you can help please visit their website.
