KidsBC: Explore Changeville

This animated, highly interactive website is designed to help kids experiencing parental divorce or separation. The virtual world of “Changeville” provides a range of information and activities for children to explore. This exploration takes place through the use of a personally created avatar that walks through Changeville to visit the Park, Legal Street, Break Up Street and The Mall. The website is targeted to children ages 6 to 12 and it can be explored alone, or with one or both parents.
