|CJSF 90.1FM||British Columbia: Youth & Indigenous Homelessness||Radio: Change the World|
CJSF collaborated with NCRA members across the country to produce a National Day of Broadcast called Radio: Change the World. In a year where residential schooling, youth suicide and the spectre of child poverty have dominated national news, this broadcast is an effort to let young people speak directly and tell their own stories and opinions.
This episode was produced by Volunteers at CJSF 90.1FM, and highlights the issues of youth & indigenous youth homelessness across British Columbia, as well as the efforts of groups like Kamloops' A Way Home and the Office of BC's Representative for Children & Youth to improve the lives of children in care as they near "aging-out" of care at 19.
Featuring interviews with Bernard Richard (BC's Representative for Children & Youth), Brianna Dick (Indigenous Youth Leadership Program, BC-RCY), Katherine McParland & youth Daniel and Kira(A Way Home/United Way), and Ruby Barclay (Vancouver Island University)
