Join Our Online Community of Child Advocates
We are now recruiting for the second class of Child Defender Fellows. The Fellowship program is open to people of all ages who are ready to put their passion into practice! Child Defender Fellows will develop advocacy skills, influence local systems impacting children and build communities that will further social justice to ensure all America’s children have a fair start and equal opportunities in their lifetime. Through bi-weekly, online sessions from October 2018 to April 2019, fellows will gain critical knowledge on policy and legislation, learn about the history and tactics of nonviolent organizing and practice using these tools in their community. Training and supervision will be provided by CDF directors, expert community organizers and national team members in Washington D.C.
