Vision, Mission and Values


All children and youth in Calgary and Alberta understand their legal rights, have access to justice, and are significant participants in decisions affecting their lives.


To provide legal advice and representation directly to vulnerable children and youth while building our community’s capacity to protect their legal rights by providing information, education and training.


Children and youth are by definition vulnerable and should be treated with respect and dignity.

Young people have a right to be heard and to participate in decisions affecting them as this is critical to their development, and to them becoming effective participants in society.

All children and youth are entitled to legal advice, information and representation.

We are inclusive and view our work from a holistic perspective.

We use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child to guide and underpin our work.
