Advocates for Children

 

“CHILDREN ARE THE WORLD’S MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE AND ITS BEST HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.” --John F. Kennedy

The NJSFWC Advocates for Children program seeks to make a difference in our world by becoming advocates for children. Members may choose to organize projects that benefit children in their community, state, or the world.

Clubwomen can become advocates by working to:

  • Ensure that children are protected from harmful situations
  • Encourage healthy physical and emotional lifestyles
  • Impact policy to improve children’s lives

While project ideas are numerous, clubs are encouraged to educate themselves regarding current issues facing our children:

  • Child Abuse
  • Health issues
  • Poverty
  • Cyberbullying
  • Teen dating violence
  • Childhood obesity
  • Texting while driving
  • Depression and suicide
  • Foster care and adoption
  • Limits on screen time
  • Childhood safety issues

Please look at our supplement for ideas, projects and suggestions for your club to help children.
