On June 16, 2017 members of the Ottawa community joined us for the pilot of Journey Home - a guided bus tour that simulates what it feels like for children and youth to enter into the child welfare system and leave their families and all that is familiar behind.
For the 2018, we will be holding Journey Home: S.E.E. (Student Education Experience) in November for Adoption Awareness Month. That's right! Algonquin College students from the Police Foundations, Victimology, and Criminology and Justice Services programs will have the opportunity to learn from children/youth in the child welfare system and from professionals/ organizations serving youth in/from care in the fields of social work, mental health, justice, education, and poverty prevention.
Please feel free to message the Alisha, Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the Journey Home project, or if you would like us to bring Journey Home to your province/community!
Feel free to watch the video from last years Journey Home!
