Project Outsiders is a youth-led registered Non-Profit Organization, using multi-media platforms to share the stories and lived experiences of those who grew up in the Child Welfare and Foster Care System. We started in 2021 as a video and audio-based podcast, and are now excited to share our documentary!
The documentary explores common themes of the Canadian Child Welfare sector while breaking down how the system impacts the youth and families it is responsible for. Through the achievements of these four diverse young Canadians, each representing a spectrum of backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and beliefs, The Youth in Care Project documentary has provided a platform to showcase the experiences and reflections of those connected to the Ontario Child Welfare System. As we discovered the development of their unique identities and worldviews, we also uncovered answers to questions such as: How has their identity changed while navigating the system? This premiere event promises to unite key figures from the child welfare and related sectors, offering a film screening, a thought-provoking discussion, and an engaging Q&A session.
We expect this to be an energizing event full of meaningful discussions, so we hope you will join us in making the commitment to bettering the systems that impact our youth's lives.
