The Poster Project began as a way to illustrate
child and youth care to an sister profession's
conference workshop audience. It developed as
an initiative of the Council which debuted to
recognize International Child and Youth Care
Workers Week 2007. Members and guests are
invited to print and display posters in their work
places and publications to promote the
association movement and the public
understanding of the child and youth care. The
Council thanks Ryerson University, Child and
Youth Care faculty and the
Journal of Relational
Child and Youth Care
for using the posters as
end pages. Since its inception it has been a
privilege to see the project to expand to include
images from across Canada and ever more
elements of the child and youth care profession.

The posters are published here as PDF files and
you will need an Acrobat Reader to do this (link

more that interest you and save it to a download
file on your computer. Once saved you can open
and print the poster. The PDF can be resized to 'fit'
almost any paper size at a professional printer.

structure as it is extended.  This was a great metaphor

Near our community well, there is a stone with a plaque
noting the accomplishments of an Olympic class rower
who practised on the lake. A few kids came by and one
climbed on the stone and looked out over the lake. The
