Meet 2017 #EPCitizen finalist Dylan Cohen of #Vancouver #BC.

He was picked by former EPCitizen Winner Kakeka Thundersky for being an active champion for youth in care of the government.

In a recent Vancouver @metronewsca interview, Dylan said, "Most youth who are 20 to 29 still live with their parents in Canada. Yet youth in care — who can often be extremely traumatized — have been held to a standard of independence far above what other youth experience. It's up to us to enter the world on the same level playing field as everyone else." He leapt into advocacy for other youth in his situation, founding the group 25not21 and recently becoming involved in Discourse Media's initiative to boost coverage of foster care issues.

Check out Dylan’s full nomination, sent by #GraceKennedy at the link in our bio.

Stay tuned for the Winners’ Announcement on December 7th!

We mean it, friends. Thank you. Thank you for pouring everything you are into the next generation. Thank you for taking on the busy weeks, the late night phone calls, the weekends spent away from your families, and the neverending to-do lists. Thank you for shedding blood (sometimes literally), sweat, and tears for the teenagers you're leading and pastoring. It's Thanksgiving Day here in the US, but no matter where you live, we hope you know how much you matter today. Thank you for everything you do to love people in the name of Jesus. You're changing the world.
