  • Course | CYR 102Child and Youth Rights Advocacy: Module Three


Children and youth are rights holders and all of us have a role to play in contributing to the knowledge young people need to have about their rights.

Over the course of three modules (CYR. 100, CYR. 101 and CYR. 102), you will explore children's rights, advocacy and the resources available to young people in Ontario's systems of care. This certificate has a distinctly Canadian focus on children's rights and will be anchored within an advocacy framework.

Module Three: Three Sessions, 12 hours 

  • Incorporating Theory into Practice: A Review of the Principles of Youth Rights and Advocacy 
  • Best Practices and Resources Related to Youth Rights Education
  • The Youth Perspective: What works / what "I don't need to hear again!" with a Youth Rights panel
  • Formal Presentation of Student Projects: Youth Rights Initiatives with a Youth Rights Panel

The program was created in partnership with the Provincial Advocates Office and the The Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counsellors. You will be encouraged to reflect actively on how you can apply what you learn in the course to your work with children and youth, and to your real-world experience.
