Changing Children's Worlds Foundation Internships

 

Since its inception in 2012, Changing Children's Worlds Foundation has hosted several interns at the high school, undergraduate, graduate level. These students invest their time and talent into CCWF research, programs, projects, communications, fundraising, and social media. Various backgrounds include law, social work, psychology, communications, and business among other professional discplines.  As the internship progresses and interns engage with CCWF internship projects, social media, and reading, they become familiar with the academic and practical pursuits of child advocacy. Interns also play a significant role in increasing social awareness of child rights issues through the social media avenues of Facebook and the CCWF website, where they actively discuss current global and domestic child rights’ issues, and share activity and learning.

 

Interns will work in one of CCWF's primary programs: The International Child Development Program (ICDP). This is a program for all caregivers: social workers, teachers, home visitors, childcare providers, school support service staff, psychologists, nurses and parents. The program aims to strengthen the empathy-based relationship these individuals have with children so that they may promote positive development and well-being in the child. ICDP is adapted and integrated within communities through the training of community professionals and parents. We currently have programs all around the Chicagoland area and Western Suburbs.
