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 and state and federal law.

Description

Bring hope to their journey of a thousand miles. Be a child advocate for an unaccompanied immigrant child.

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 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!
