I Want to Come!

The Youth Network serves young people 14 to 24 years old. If you, or someone you know might be interested in attending our Youth Network meetings please contact Kimberley Miller at kimberley.miller@adoptontario.ca or call her at 416-482-0021 ex. 2991. The Youth Network meets in the Toronto area.


In 2011, thirteen youth met through the Youth Network and realized that they had collectively experienced over sixty family moves before becoming part of their forever families through adoption. To help share their experience and spread the message about the importance of adopting older children, they created this video.


Please take the time to listen to this audio Public Service Announcement created by the Youth Network.


More information about the Youth Network is available in this newsletter.
