Extractions: Home Virtual Library Publications Resource Centre ... Mailing List Registration Form Young People Say Previous Table of Contents Next Report of the National Youth in Care Network Probably the biggest issue for most of the youth I spent time with, was finding a voice and being 'heard' by the experts and the professionals. A strong sense of the people 'in power' not understanding the real issues. A lot of anger and lack of trust of adults. Also a lot of hope and energy for real change. YOUTH delegate Rights of the Child On any given day, there are 45,000 to 60,000 young people in care in Canada. When we think about crime prevention and community safety, too often the most marginalized youth, youth in and from care, and street youth, are viewed as the criminals - as youth who place communities at greater risk. Our society is more likely to consider a juvenile prostitute to be a criminal, rather than a victim of child sexual abuse. People consider a young drop-out to be a failure, not a young person who may need support and educational alternatives that will increase his or her chance of finding employment and a fulfilling life. Young people say life on the streets, chronic unemployment, poverty, substance abuse, and jail are not enviable situations, or ones in which they want to stay.

Extractions: Aboriginal Youth Grants have been among the many grant and funding initiatives undertaken by the Crime Prevention Division. Whilst these specific grants are no longer offered, there are many funding opportunities available for Aboriginal and youth projects through the Division. There are also Aboriginal Youth Grant recipients still undertaking their grant projects. In the last round of funding, to 30 April 2004, the Crime Prevention Division offered grants of up to $30,000 to organisations interested in implementing Aboriginal Youth Projects in NSW. Projects proposed aimed to reduce or prevent the involvement of young Aboriginal people in unlawful or anti-social behaviour and/or reduce the number of young Aboriginal people entering the criminal justice system. Past projects have recognised and addressed the issues that placed young people at risk. They aimed to improve the opportunities for young people to participate positively in the community and therefore prevent their involvement in activities that could introduce them to the criminal justice system.
