Who are Caregiving Youth?
Caregiving Youth are children and adolescents who are 18 years of age or younger and who provide significant or substantial assistance, often on a regular basis, to relatives or household members who need help because of physical or mental illness, disability, frailty associated with aging, substance misuse, or other condition.

The Caregiver Space is an online community for caregivers of all ages. As an initiative of the Caregiving Youth Institute to connect children across the United States who are caring for ill, injured, elderly or disabled family members, the American Association of Caregiving Youth® now hosts a Caregiving Youth Forum and a biweekly chat on The Caregiver Space. You may access both the forum and the chat by registering for free at www.thecaregiverspace.org.
