Professional Advocates

If you’re a social worker or you have professional experience in child protection, apply to join our Professional Advocate team!


Local Advocacy

Professional Advocates will serve as part of an advocacy collective to collaborate ideas on raising awareness and promoting best practice in OVC care. Advocates will use their expertise to help more children grow up in safe families by shifting mindsets and promoting change.

Global Service

Professional Advocates will be informed of global missions where they can serve onsite with organizations to provide social work training and consultation. They will walk alongside an organization to strengthen and increase their social work skills, so they can better protect children and empower families for all..
