The First Call coalition of partners provides a unified, strong and respected voice for BC’s children and youth.
First Call’s advocacy is grounded in the 4 Keys to Success for Children and Youth. And it is informed by the cross-sectoral expertise and province-wide reach of our diverse coalition of partners. Partners meet monthly to discuss emerging issues and set priorities. Partners working in early childhood development (ECD) meet bi-monthly in an ECD Roundtable.
First Call partners now number over 110 provincial and regional member organizations from a wide variety of sectors.
A number of government departments or organizations support the 4 Keys to Success for Children and Youth and send representatives to participate in our monthly meetings as well. These liaison relationships are currently in place with the following organizations:
We invite your organization to partner with us and to add your voice to our call to put children and youth first.
The First Call Coalition of partners is a program of First Call Child and Youth Advocacy Society.
“Members of The University Women’s Club of Vancouver at Hycroft are proud to be active partners of First Call. We regularly use First Call’s materials in our own advocacy work to promote an end to Child Poverty in B.C. First Call is an important voice for the most vulnerable children and youth in B.C. and we gladly lend our support to such an important and vital organization.”
