Children's Rights: Building Resilience, Protecting from Harm, and Fostering Well-Being Among Our World's Children

June 7-9, 2017

Millersville University of Pennsylvania

Millersville University School of Social Work's Learning Institute is dedicated to investigating global social issues.  The Learning Institute provides a platform from which experts share their knowledge and offer training for agents of social change.  Each year, The Learning Institute hosts events that center on a particular theme reflected in the Learning Institute's literature, roster of speakers, and annual conference. For the 2016-2017 academic year, the Learning Institute is focused on the world's children. The World Health Organization identifies children as a vulnerable population facing overwhelming challenges that compromise their development and well-being, while lacking the protections and resources that offer protection from harm (World Health Organization, 2016). UNICEF (2015) calls for the placement of children at the center of our global agenda, and identifies issues that compromise the well-being of children, including violence, child exploitation, poverty, exposure to conflict, and limited educational opportunities.
