Latest Report - We All Have A Role: Building social capital among youth in care

Using data from the 2013 BC Adolescent Health Survey, and in partnership with Vancouver Foundation, McCreary's most recent report looks at the presence of social capital in the lives of youth living in the care of the BC government. The protective potential of family, school community and peers is explored, and the resources that have the strongest influence on youth in care are identified.
