We provide upstream interventions and strategies for reducing adverse childhood experiences and promoting resilience so children can have positive, supportive, and healthy relationships. With the combined experience of diverse national experts, The UP Institute delivers innovative solutions to help professionals develop and enhance programs that will improve their communities.
UP FOR CHAMPIONS, in partnership with THE UP INSTITUTE, supports the professionals working to solve child abuse and neglect globally, through advocacy, public education, and family support programs. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that aims to create safe and healthy communities for children and their families. UP FOR CHAMPIONS works with community, state, and national organizations to expand and disseminate knowledge about child abuse and neglect. These programs include:
This is a multidisciplinary training program focused on the practical aspects of preparing and presenting in court, as well as strategies for navigating the judicial process in child abuse cases.
Victim advocates provide services and resources to ensure a consistent, coordinated, and comprehensive network of support for children and families in crisis.
Training that covers the responsibility of mandatory reporters to report child sexual and physical abuse.
Alternative, more effective parenting strategies.
The Teens, Sex, and the Law program helps teens make educated and informed decisions.
Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity. Throughout this internship, I've learned a lot about legislative advocacy and program development. I've also intensified my passion for law, especially in terms of advocating for children and other vulnerable populations.
I hope we can keep in touch because I still have so much to learn from you!
