What is individual advocacy?
Did you know?
Advocacy for individual children and youth. Advocates can help you have a voice if you need services from the Yukon Government. Governments are obligated to uphold children’s rights.
What types of things does an individual advocacy worker do?
We will help your views be heard and make sure your rights are considered when decisions are being made about you. We will ask you what you want or need and will contact Yukon Government departments to find out what they are doing to help you. Government departments are required to let us know what they are doing for you.
In ten years of operation, the YCAO has addressed 911 advocacy issues for 564 Yukon children & youth.
