Mission Statement

The mission of the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights is to promote the best interests of unaccompanied immigrant children with due regard to the child’s expressed wishes, according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Young Center is a champion for the best interests of children who arrive in the United States on their own, from all corners of the world. We serve as trusted allies for these children by accompanying them through court proceedings, advocating for their best interests, and standing for the creation of a dedicated juvenile immigrant justice system that ensures the safety and well-being of every child.

Description

The Young Center provides Child Advocates for unaccompanied immigrant children in federal custody. Our model uses volunteer Child Advocates who undergo a Young Center training, meet with a child on a weekly basis, and learn the child’s story, all supervised and supported by Young Center staff.
