If, on your 18th birthday, you have a VYSA with a company, you are eligible for the “Continuous Assistance and Support for Youth” (CCSY) program. CcSY provides financial and non-financial support to youth between the age of 18 and 21 (for example. B service by a company employee). Talk to your company employee about the range of supports that may be available to you. ADR is an approach to resolving disputes between you and a company. This approach, where appropriate, encourages the involvement and support of the family and extended family and your community in planning and making decisions for children and adolescents. ADR focuses on bringing the right people together to develop the best plan for you. For example, if you don`t agree with the company on the type of mediation that is best for you, ADR can bring together the right people to explore options and develop a plan. The least disruptive approach: young people are often the best helped in their families, large families and communities. Our approach will involve people who are important to young people when it comes to deciding on the safety and well-being of young people.

This guide is designed as an additional resource and temporary support, while OACAS, in collaboration with CAS, consults with key stakeholders, collects information and oversees sectoral services for 16 and 17 year olds to identify the best ways of working in the province to work with this new age group. Voluntary Youth Service Plan (VYS Plan) Every young person with a VYSA has a VYS plan. This is a plan developed by you and the company, which describes the different supports you have. It will also document your strengths, needs and goals. It also includes the activities and roles and responsibilities assigned by you and society to build on your strengths and meet your needs and goals. Within 30 days of entering a VYSA, the partner will work with you to develop a VYS plan. Sometimes your child may be involved in the agreement you are meeting with CAS. This means that they must also approve CAS services and perhaps sign the agreement. Permanence: 16- and 17-year-olds are beginning to move into independence and adulthood; IDCs help them identify their targets. The service will help youth identify and develop lasting relationships that are useful and beneficial to them, while incorporating general definitions of family, extended family, family and community. As of January 1, 2018, children`s aid organizations are required, under the Child and Family Services Act, to make the full range of protection services available to all eligible youth in the year 16 or 17.

This is a big step forward for young people who cannot live safely at home.
