Regardless of age, no one stops needing a family. Our youth programs offer a place for youth adoptees and youth in or from foster care to be heard and supported, while allowing them to develop life skills.

Speak-Out Youth

Youth meet to share their experiences, concerns, and perspectives on adoption and permanence.

A resource for young adults from foster care as they transition out of care.


We offer two $1,000 scholarships for youth from government care and youth who were adopted.

Other scholarships and bursaries

Many scholarship and bursaries are designed specifically for adoptees and former youth in care.
