Consider Changing Children's Worlds Foundation for your internship or as a volunteer site!

CCWF Overview Changing Children's Worlds Foundation (CCWF) is a unique organization, founded by Kimberly Svevo Cianci, former Executive Director of the International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) and Derek Peterson, International Youth Advocate and Leader of the Integrated Youth Development Initiative (IYD).

Purpose Grounded in rigorous research and best practice, CCWF offers meaningful, measurable and sustainable strategies and programs for those who care about children and youth, and for young people themselves. CCWF provides youth, adult caregivers and community and professional leaders the information, connections and tools they need to succeed.

Vision For every child and adolescent to have a strong network of adult caregivers and professionals engaged in supporting their positive development in peaceful families and communities.

Philosophy Children's Worlds are their Home, Family, School, Neighborhood, Community, City, National, International, Cultures, Religions, Sports, Work and Peers.

• Children's Worlds are Changing All the Time.

• As agents of change, we work to Improve Children's Worlds.

Internships and Volunteers The CCWF Internship Program has hosted many interns, from many different backgrounds. Interns have the opportunity to contribute to the cause of child rights protection and violence prevention while learning about the international field at both the global and domestic level while gaining an understanding of the issues based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. As the intership progresses and interns engage with CCWF intership projects, social media and reseach, they become familiar with the academic and practical pursuits of international child rights protection including the economic, political, cultural and societal contexts in which CCWF and all child rights organizations operate. Interns also play a significant role in increased 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.

Through an internship at CCWF, volunteers gain valuable experience in many fields, as CCWF deals with child protection through a variety of lenses such as: social work, psychology, education, domestic and international law, business, and cultural practices.

Internships do require good writing and communication skills, a commitment of at least 120 hours dedicated to the organization, though this may be completed in a little as one or as long as six months depending on the availability of the intern.
