The Crown Ward Educational Championship Team (Waterloo-Wellington) is a group of community members from a variety of sectors. We work together to increase the awareness, participation, and the success of youth in care at all levels of education, while preparing them for employment.

The CWECT Waterloo-Wellington focuses on the needs of Crown Ward youth to help them overcome their unique barriers, allowing them to have a better chance at succeeding in postsecondary education, training and employment.

We are here to harness the super powers of our partners to help Crown Wards feel supported and confident in each phase of their education, academic and career journeys.

Some of the activities that our partnership undertakes to help Crown Ward youth include:

  • Career and lifestyle visioning activities through photo and video projects
  • Work closely with local employment agencies to assist with job placements and skill development
  • Implement post-secondary peer based programs and community based service-learning programs
  • Work in partnership with local school boards to ensure education success
  • Support foster families through sharing relevant information

“It has been a great experience being part of the Crown Ward Education Championship Team for Waterloo and Wellington County.  They are a dedicated team working hard to improve the services and opportunities for our youth in care.”
