Children and youth are facing increasingly complex challenges and vulnerabilities in today’s society. For over 35 years, the Society for Children and Youth of BC has been actively engaged in education and community engagement to promote the well-being of all children and youth. Our work builds healthy communities in concrete ways and build the capacity of communities to change their communities for the better.

SCY is always seeking new partners to work with to create more child and youth friendly communities. In the past we have worked with community groups, municipalities, and specific city departments on issues related to child and youth friendliness.  Partnering could involve a number of different activities with varying scales from participating in an event to helping develop a city-wide child and youth friendly community strategy. If you have an idea about how you or your organization can partner with SCY, please feel free to contact us.
