The GFWC Juniors’ Special Program: Advocates for Children is designed to encourage all Woman's, Junior Woman's, Juniorette and International Affiliate Clubs to make a difference in the life of a child by being an advocate. The Program was envisioned as a way for clubwomen to provide a voice for children and to teach and encourage parents and other caregivers to advocate for children at the grassroots.
