Join us in April 2013 in Vancouver for the Champions for Children and Youth 2013 B.C. Summit: A National Conference on Keeping Kids Safe and Connected. Over a two-day period, we will examine children’s right to be safe and included in their communities, and how we – as a civil society – can actively foster environments that keep children and youth engaged, safe, and feeling connected. We will hear from national and international organizations as well as experts about best practices and lessons learned. We will share inspired conversations to examine the systems of support that exist to address the challenges that our young people face as they search for a sense of belonging and resiliency in their daily lives. From bullying, to youth coaching practices, to the temptations of gang affiliations, together – through dialogue – we will focus on the emotional needs of our young people and share practical knowledge to help build and strengthen inclusive, child-centred communities.
