The Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights is training volunteers to serve as Child Advocates for unaccompanied immigrant children in immigration detention.
The role of the Child Advocate is to meet with the child, learn the child's story over time, and advocate for that individual child's best interests.
To become a Child Advocate, you must:
-Be at least 21 years old
-Submit to a background check and health screening
-Participate in the two-day Young Center Training
-Be approved by the Young Center
*We are particularly interested in volunteers who speak Spanish but this opportunity is available for anyone interested!
