The Rep sat down recently with her new friend Giggles, a puppet from the planet Zog, to talk about a child's right to culture. Giggles meets with students in elementary schools to help them explore their rights as children. Giggles met with more than 150 children at three Victoria schools as part of the Child Thrive program, an initiative of the International Institute for Child Rights and Development.
When you call RCYBC, you will be connected with an advocate. Our advocates are here to help in dealing with your social worker, speaking up about your rights and your care and getting access to government services. We thought it would be fun to ask them some questions and introduce you to them.
The Representative for Children and Youth BC (RCYBC) is an independent organization. That means that we are not the government! RCYBC supports youth, young people and their families, and any children and youth who are not in government care but still require assistance in dealing with the government.
