MACY’s Youth Engagement Coordinators work to protect the rights of children and youth and to raise awareness and understanding of children’s rights.
Our Youth Engagement Coordinators work with young people from across Manitoba to provide input, advice, and feedback to create change and improve services provided to children and youth in Manitoba, including:
- Child welfare
- Mental health
- Victim support; and
- Youth justice.
Our Youth Ambassador Advisory Squad (YAAS!) is an important way we ensure that youth have a voice throughout our office and our work around Manitoba.
We also connect with other organizations that focus on youth and we attend youth-focused and youth-led events, to hear what youth have to say.
