What is the Junior Council?

The CHILD USA Junior Council offers a leadership role for active thinkers who make use of CHILD USA resources as they fiercely advocate for children. The junior council supports CHILD USA’s key operations by bringing together the lawyers, educators, and health professionals working on the front lines with children to discuss the changing law and landscape of child protection in real time. Our key focus is on Statute of Limitations reform, mandated reporting, and legal training regarding child sexual abuse advocacy.
