AgedOut.com is for young adults who were in government care in BC. It’s an up-to-date warehouse of information on resources and services available to young adults and a learning tool to help people feel empowered as they leave care. Brought to you by Former Youth in Care, AgedOut.com was built after listening to the voices of former youth in care to make sure the site meets their needs.
Children and Youth in Care
Every child and youth in British Columbia has the right to be healthy, safe, educated, and to be heard. The dedicated team of advocates who work in the Office of the Representative for Children and Youth (RCY) is committed to ensuring that the rights and interests of children and youth are protected and upheld, and that their views are heard and considered by decision-makers.
You have rights while you are in foster care and you will find them on this site. If your rights are not being respected there are people to talk to who will take action to make sure that they are respected. There are also options for you once you leave care either to return home, go on independence or once you have aged out. You may also be eligible for scholarships or bursaries or financial help with training and education costs if you were in care.
The Federation of BC Youth in Care Networks is dedicated to improving the lives of young people between the ages of 14 and 24 who are or have been in care.
