The Representative for Children and Youth (RCY), an independent officer of the B.C. Legislature, works to influence positive change to B.C.'s child-, youth- and young adult-serving system. The Representative's Office provides advocacy support to people dealing with the child and youth service system and advocates directly on behalf of children, youth and young adults, monitors and reviews government services to children and youth and reviews and investigates selected deaths and critical injuries of children and youth who are receiving services.

We aspire to a legacy where children, youth, young adults and families served by the child and family serving systems receive timely, appropriate and compassionate support and services that they need, when they need it. We dream of a Province where all children and families thrive and where experiences of stigma, shame, judgment and racism have been eliminated.

RCY Advocates provide intake, direct advocacy and outreach services to children, youth and young adults (19 - 26) accessing a designated or prescribed service under the Representative for Children and Youth Act. Intake and advocacy services include assessing service requests, providing information and referrals, engaging with relevant key party groups in early resolution, promoting and supporting self-advocacy and providing direct advocacy services where appropriate. Advocates also engage in community relations activities with various stakeholders across the province. RCY Advocacy staffs' day to day work may focus on different elements of service for extended periods (i.e., intake, assessing requests, direct advocacy or community engagement) as operationally needed.

Only applications submitted to jobs@rcybc.ca will be accepted. Applications sent to the BC Government Hiring Centre website will not be considered.

For complete details on this opportunity, and to apply, please review the information on the Representative for Children and Youth Careers Page .
