American SPCC is a very important organization to us as advocates against the maltreatment of children in America. We are long time supporters of the work they are doing to stand up and speak out against child abuse. We must unite and work together as a country to raise awareness and prevent this epidemic from continuing. The children are our future and they need us. Thank you American SPCC for your dedication and and continuous hard work!
I am a policy specialist and have served as a consultant for American SPCC for the last several months. I can report that American SPCC offers numerous avenues for those interested in the welfare of children, adolescents, and older youth to at once get involved and be part of the solution. American SPCC prioritizes the perspectives of young people, and I particularly appreciate the student advocacy model and toolkit that this nonprofit provides for students to assist them with identifying and advocating on behalf of the child welfare issues that matter most to them. American SPCC has both a national vision and a very hands-on ground effort working closely to assist and support child welfare advocates in the Portland, Oregon, community. This is a small nonprofit that has tremendous potential for growth.
Imagine if there was an organization that was entirely focused on the needs and interests of American children.
Imagine if that organization served as a platform giving American children a voice.
The AmericanSPCC is that organization. They are creating solutions to the problems facing far too many American children.
I hope others will come together and support this growing community in whatever ways they can.
American SPCC offers a wide variety of educational and advocacy opportunities for parents/caretakers and youth. Youth can identify issues important to them in high school and college clubs, and earn service credit from American SPCC for attempting to make improvements in their community.
Parents and caretakers are able to access a wide variety of topics for guidance. For example, new parents can learn tips on how to remain cool while learning and utilizing strategies to calm a crying infant, and helplines are given a when a caregiver feels overwhelmed. In addition, children, teens and caregivers can learn strategies to deal with bullying at school and in their community, and learn how identify, reach out and obtain help if they feel depressed or suicidal.
American SPCC has a pro-active approach to dealing with the challenges that children, youth, parents and caregivers commonly face. Its' solution-focused, hands-on strategies are empowering and effective.
American SPCC offers holistic approaches to addressing child abuse, neglect and exploitation, which cause so many of our social and economic problems. The organization's focus on solutions--positive parenting, anti-bullying, and advocacy--both in the community and through social media networks is unique. So is their model of supporting students and youth in working to solve problems in their communities through high school, college, and community clubs while earning service credit hours and other awards.
I have worked on children's rights in many arenas but have finally found a forum that allows children and youth to find a way to envision and create a more positive future for themselves and the next generation. Please join me in supporting their work!
The AmericanSPCC is an organization dedicated to child welfare and has a cutting edge model of service learning and club organization for the youth of America. I believe if the youth have a voice, there is a great chance that child abuse will dramatically decrease in the United States.
I am honored to be associated and working with this great nonprofit, American SPCC (American Society for the Positive Care of Children). They are an amazing organization with huge goals and a vast vision to actualize positive social change as it relates to all areas of children's rights, child abuse, neglect, maltreatment and bullying.
They are devoted to building an active, caring community advocating for children’s rights and the welfare of families by increasing awareness of child abuse, promoting positive parenting, encouraging social reform, and offering anti-bullying strategies.
I fully support this charity and their mission, and highly recommend that others do the same! www.americanspcc.org
