Join us for a facilitated panel discussion focused on the issue of youth aging out of care.

The event will bring together advocates, researchers, people with lived experience, and community leaders from the youth sector who will give brief presentations from their experience as well as participate in a facilitated panel discussion.

Through this discussion, we hope to inform our community on the recommendations and solutions researchers and advocates encourage, that will bring positive changes to our system and for youth aging out of care.
