Involve Children in Your CRC Activities

The CRC itself gives children a right to be heard on matters affecting their lives. Children are naturally drawn to issues relating to their rights; the respect you show for their views will demonstrate that you care for those rights too. To get children involved, you can:

  1. Encourage your own children and their friends to participate, including in the planning of activities and why you're doing it.
  2. Contact the children's teachers and adult mentors about having children participate in an activity.
  3. If you want to generate news coverage for an event, be sure to have explicit permission from parents for any pictures of or quotations by their children.
  4. The Campaign has a Youth Advisory Council (in formation)
