What is Voices! Manitoba’s Youth In Care Network?
Voices is a network for youth in and from care, where you can network and connect with other youth who understand what is like to be in care.
Can I be a member? How do I do that?
Yes. All youth in and from care are welcome to participate in Voices activities & projects.
Are activities free?
