Center for the Human Rights of Children


As a critical part of our mission, The Center for the Human Rights of Children looks to involve others who are passionate about representing, coordinating, and stimulating efforts to understand, protect and apply the human rights of children. We often invite students, faculty, and staff from Loyola and surrounding universities to become involved with research projects, events, and other Center efforts. The CHRC also frequently offers fellowship and internship opportunities, to support various endeavors in this field.

Keep checking back, as we are always looking to recruit individuals who want to be involved with the CHRC!
