Youth In Transition Workers

Youth in Transition Workers are now available to support former Crown Ward youth in transitioning out of care.  The Youth in Transition Worker help youth ages 16-24 connect with educational, employment, housing, life skills, mental health and other resources in their communities.  The program works from a strength-based youth driven framework, which means; the program is voluntary and based on whether the young person feels they need further support.

“They were there when I needed them”
