We are lawyers, social workers, researchers, fundraisers, volunteer managers and much more. What we all have in common is a passion for protecting the rights and improving the lives of children.
In addition to staff positions, we are always looking for volunteers – attorneys and non-attorneys – to assist us in this work. We offer a number of internships to qualified candidates. We are interested in hearing from smart, dedicated people who share our commitment and want to make a difference. Council for Children’s Rights is an equal opportunity employer.
