Connecting to school 2.0

Youth health profile
This fact sheet shares data about the health of youth with government care experience, the inequities that exist in our communities, and offers evidence about how we can improve the health of youth transitioning out of care.Download
On September 20th, 2019 we invited youth and young adults aged 18 to 24 years who where in or from care transitioning to independence to map their transition to independence. Journey Maps are a visual artifact to be used by the CYL and Strategic Advisory to measure changes, to examine the current landscape against the 2016 Journey Maps, and to develop a shared pathway for moving forward.
The youth and young adults mapped their experiences under five pillars:
1. Ministry and Services
2. Health and Well-Being
5. Home and Neighbourhood
To understand their needs and to help CI-TRRUST set priorities for change we asked:
- What helped them in their transition?
- What barriers did they face? and
- How would you imagine your future look like if you had the support and systems you needed?
In the stories of their future we identified 8 themes or priorities:
2. Whole Person Care
3. Stable Employment
5. Livelong Support
6. Basic Needs Met
8. Stable, Affordable Housing
Below are the 2019 Journey Maps.
