Vol. 15 No. 1 (2024): International Journal of Child, Youth and Family Studies

The International Journal of Child, Youth and Family Studies (IJCYFS) is a peer reviewed, open access, interdisciplinary, cross-national journal that is committed to scholarly excellence in the field of research about and services for children, youth, families, and their communities. This issue, however, will be unconventional, in that it is mainly written, illustrated, and designed by Indigenous youth in foster care. These are not peer-reviewed academic papers; rather they are personal accounts on a variety of topics and it is hoped that they will prove invaluable resources for practitioners and researchers in the field.
