What’s the OneChild Youth Advisory Squad (YAS)?

The YAS is a youth-run council that meets once a month to advise OneChild on youth engagement opportunities, act as an ambassador for OneChild, and take action against the issue of child sex trafficking. This is a great opportunity for you to get hands-on experience when it comes to raising public awareness, advocacy, and fundraising to help support child survivors of sex trafficking. The OneChild YAS is a welcoming, open space to all youth with varying knowledge and experience with this issue. Each young leader who participates will also receive the OneChild YAS Scholarship!
