McCreary Centre Society is a non-government not-for-profit committed to improving the health of BC youth through research, evaluation and community-based projects. Our vision is that all youth are supported to be healthy and connected.
As a new school year begins, McCreary is excited to share updates on the projects we have been working on, as well as from our youth groups.
McCreary is hiring Youth Research Assistants to join the eighth cohort of the Youth Research Academy (YRA) that will be starting at the end of June 2023. The YRA is a group of BC youth aged 16 to 24 with experience in the government care system who are trained to carry out research projects of interest to youth in and from care and the agencies that serve them.
Thank you to all the nurses, teachers, principals, superintendents, and students across BC who made the 2023 BC AHS survey administration so successful. We wish everyone a wonderful and restful summer and are excited to share the results later this year.

The YIRT are a group of young Indigenous researchers who have come together to work on projects that support Indigenous youth and improve their health and well-being. Their second project was to create an infographic poster to accompany the Raven’s Children V report. The infographic is available for download here.
The Youth Research Academy is surveying BC youth aged 18 to 24 with experience of government care or an alternative to care, such as a Youth Agreement. The goal is to understand what is working well and what can be improved for young people transitioning out of care.
