Welcome! You belong here

The Belonging Network’s youth programs support youth in and from government care, and youth with lived experience of adoption and permanency. Most of the participants in our youth programs are between 15 and 29 years old. Our programs can help you learn new skills, access all kinds of supports, and gain confidence as you transition into adulthood and independence. 

We’re so glad you found us. 

Our approach to supporting youth

We’ve worked with youth for many years. Everything we do is “by youth, for youth.” We embrace the idea of “nothing about us without us.” The lived experiences, needs, and voices of youth who’ve been there and done that inform every program and service we create. 

Our goal is to support youth as fully as possible. We offer:

  • bursaries to help you pursue educational opportunities
  • a one-stop online resource hub packed with information about transitioning out of government care called AgedOut.com
  • life skills programming in partnership with community organizations across BC
  • and more!
