First Call is excited to announce the launch of our Youth Advocacy Team, whose work will continue Vancouver Foundation’s Fostering Change initiative.

We are seeking youth from care who want to help improve systemic policies. We’ll provide folks with training opportunities, engage in policy consultation, and decide together on tactics. Our work will be present in the lives of everyone in BC through a public provincial advocacy campaign that uses digital and other tools to further change. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

If you would like more information about the team, click here. You can email Dylan Cohen, Youth Organizer, directly at with any questions.

Dylan recently wrote an op-ed for The Province about reconsidering the age and time-in-care eligibility requirements for youth in and out of care to qualify for waived tuition fees. You can read the article by clicking here.
