What is the Children at Risk school?

The Children at Risk school is designed for those who want to become advocates for children and work to see lasting change in their lives. The focus is on children who have been placed at risk because of factors such as war, disease, poverty, exploitation, abandonment, disability, and other forms of injustice. Students are given an overview of the needs of at risk children as well insight concerning child development. An emphasis is made on intervention and working towards advocacy for children. This Children at Risk school has a special focus on refugee children.
