First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition

First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition is a non-partisan coalition of over 100 provincial and regional organizations who have united their voices to put children and youth first in BC through public education, community mobilization, and public policy advocacy.

Coalition members work together to make sure all BC’s children and youth benefit from the 4 Keys to Success for Children and Youth:

  • A strong commitment to early childhood development
  • Support in transitions from childhood to youth and adulthood
  • Increased economic equality
  • Safe and caring communities

Our Vision
BC’s children and youth have the rights, opportunities and resources required to thrive.

Our Mission
To put BC’s children and youth first through public education, community mobilization and public policy advocacy.

Being welcomed into shared space with Vancity Community Foundation has been such a boost to the sustainability of First Call’s work.  We feel extremely lucky to be working with and learning from the Foundation staff team, and to be inside an organization that ascribes to and acts on the social, economic and environmental justice values we also hold dear. - Adrienne Montani, Provincial Coordinator
