  • Course | CYR 101Child and Youth Rights Advocacy: Module Two


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 Two Three Sessions, 12 hours

  • The Power of Rights and Advocacy - Working with Children and Youth - Implementation of Rights
  • Linking Theory to Practice in the Social Service ‘Industry'
  • Institutional Advocacy
  • The Voice of Children's Rights and Advocacy
  • Talking to and about Rights and Responsibilities with Young People
  • Looking through the Lens of Children and Youth: The Developmental Context

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.
