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.


Voices Network Retreat Fall 2017
Sep 29 – Oct 1 all-day

Youth in and from care from across Manitoba are invited to join us for a weekend of learning, sharing, and belonging.  At our Network retreats, we learn more about ourselves, our connections to community, and ways use our in-care experiences to be empowered and make the system better.

We also climb things, jump off things, swim, go for walks by the lake, and play weird games.

The $50.00 registration fee is usually covered by your agency.  There are a limited number of subsidies available for alumni of care who are no longer supported by their agency.  If cost is an issue, please give us a call!

Registration forms need to be returned to Voices by Monday, September 18th!
