Are you an organization or professional working with youth, families and caregiving services? Do you know a young caregiver? Please join us for our upcoming information session to learn about the hidden population of young caregivers and our new programming to support BC youth aged 16-25 who provide caregiver support to their family members.
Powerhouse™, our new pilot program for young caregivers in BC, provides support and engagement activities to help young caregivers acquire new skills and build positive self-esteem for their role as caregiver in their families. Presented by Family Caregivers of BC and the Young Caregiver Association, the information session will highlight the key issues, needs and objectives for young caregivers and more information about the current and future directions of the young caregiver program.
