Rather than standing or speaking for children, we need to stand with children speaking for themselves. We don't need a political movement for children... [we need to] build environments and policies for our collective future. - Sandra Meucci
In response to the challenges made by the Representative for Children and Youth to make post-secondary education accessible to youth in care, many colleges and universities have stepped forward to offer tuition waivers, bursaries, and other financial assistance to these youth.
