Youth Worker, Vancouver, BC - 23 November 2017
Working with UNYA was, at times, a delight. The Youth with who I worked were wonderful, as were many of my co-workers. Unfortunately, internal politics, as well as inefficiency within the organisation, contributed at times to inconsistency and negative outcomes for the youth. This is not solely the fault of UNYA - the child welfare system in its entirety - including many of the social workers with who I communicated - treat young women, particularly those with Aboriginal heritage, very poorly.
