Voices: Manitoba’s Youth in Care Network provides support, encouragement, and advocacy to young people in and from care in Manitoba.  We come alongside youth while they are in care, as they transition to in(ter)dependence, and as they grow into adults pursuing their goals.  We are youth-driven and youth-focused. 

We raise awareness of the challenges youth-in-care face, educating the public and working with child welfare professionals to create a better system of care in Manitoba.  Improving living  conditions for children and youth who find themselves in alternative care, such as foster homes, group homes, and independent living programs.

Our programs and activities are open to all youth in & from care 12 to 30 years old. We have a growing youth membership comprised of the many cultures and ethnicities that reside in Manitoba.

Mac Trek 2019
Aug 7 – Aug 9 all-day

Youth-in-care are invited to experience the wilderness in honour of our friend, Mac (1998-2015).  Mac was a young man, in care, who showed immense compassion and shared a positive attitude with everyone he met.  To carry his memory forward, our friends at Momenta (experiencemomenta.com) host canoe trips where young people can find a connection to wilderness and friendship.

The canoe trips are open to youth in and from care, ages 12 and up!  There will be one trip this summer:  August 7th to 9th, 2019.  There are 7 spots available, first come, first served.  Please fill out both of the following documents and return by Monday, June 24th, 2019:
