HOW IT WORKS
Girls may enter the program at 6, boys 7, and non-binary youth at 9. Youth must voluntarily want to be a part of the program, and will be updated regularly while they are waiting for a match. Youth will be offered group and short-term programs immediately after acceptance.
Youth who are under 16 years of age must have a parent/guardian who supports the application and can be involved in the process. Youth who are over 16 will be assessed as the primary applicant, should they wish to advocate for themselves. If you are not the individual with legal signing rights for the child, the legal signatory must provide permission.
Youth, and parent/guardians if applicable, must agree to regular contact with the Agency.
Youth must reside in Winnipeg
