Relationships Matter for Youth 'Aging Out' of Care is a collaborative photovoice project led by Melanie Doucet, who is a former youth in care, alongside eight former youth in care between the ages of 19 and 29 from the Greater Vancouver area. Using images captured by the young co-researchers and their accompanying captions, Melanie’s project takes a closer look at meaningful supportive relationships in the lives of young people in and from care, and how those relationships can be developed and nurtured over time.
This webinar is intended to help professionals learn about and engage with:
- 8 of the 12 relationship-related themes emerging from the photography;
- 34 concrete recommendations for improving child welfare policies and practices
