Today is World Children’s Day! Launched in 1954, the goal is to improve child welfare worldwide. This year is extra special, marking the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child; a time to celebrate and a time to demand action for child rights.

It’s a fun day with a serious message, because here at Schuyler Center, fighting for the rights of children is our goal every day. To mark this day, we’re having the Schuyler Center kids take over our social media accounts, to talk about what they think all children need to grow up and become the best person they can possibly be. See their messages about what matters to kids in our slideshow!
