Embracing the legacy: 50 years | robert f. kennedy
We believe……in the legacy of Robert F. Kennedy – that society has a duty to the poor and disadvantaged,…in the integrity and individuality of every human being,…that all children have the right to grow up in a healthy and secure environment,
The RFK Youth in Progress (YIP) program is structured to organize after-school activities in an innovative way that allows each student to achieve his or her full potential. Students between the ages of 14 and 18 administer the YIP program, which is overseen by trained staff and community volunteers. The 10-week course is focused on respecting a culture that promotes self-esteem, integrity, and development. It involves hands-on activities in the classroom and in the community that foster leadership, self-confidence, and self-awareness. Money management, work skills (applications, resumes), efficient communication, and dispute resolution are among the subjects discussed in the program.
Live event on thursday, june 18th at 4:00pm (pt)/7:00pm
The Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps (RFKCAC) was established in 1969 by a group of Bobby Kennedy’s young friends to honor his legacy and devotion to children, shortly after his assassination. The Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps is a nationally known pioneer in the fields of child protection and criminal justice. It runs residential and community-based programs for at-risk youth and families in seven communities across Massachusetts, mainly through the Massachusetts Departments of Social Services (DSS) and Youth Services (DYS). Its Detention Diversion Advocacy Program (DDAP) is a model for partnering with courts to pair counselors with youth in order to keep them out of jail and in their neighborhoods. Bright Futures, a statewide adoption program run by RFKCAC, is also available. It also offers advice, technical assistance, and training in juvenile justice reform in 36 states and territories across the United States through its RFK National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice (NRC), which is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and was established in 2013 with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

This month marks the three-year anniversary of the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice. We appreciate the interest shown by an ever-increasing number of local, state, and federal agencies and organizations, which has resulted in a multitude of collaboration opportunities, programs, and initiatives to enhance the lives of children and families, many of which will be launched in early 2017. A number of new projects and initiatives that demonstrate our strong commitment to collaborating in the field and continue the steady progress toward better practice are worth mentioning. These efforts provide us with experiences that we can all use to help our children and families:
