During the Child Advocacy VASE Program, you will learn and work alongside Lawrentians who are passionate about the wellbeing of children. This program is designed for students who are interested in working with children or who simply have kids in their life that they care about. We will meet weekly to discuss topics like child development, ethical volunteering, and how to get more involved with youth advocacy in the Appleton community.
