“Effective advocacy can make a tremendous impact on the children while potentially opening new, exciting career paths for childcare professionals,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “This course offers a blueprint of how to become a child advocate, and the importance of supporting the rights of our children and their families.”
