All children should be seen and heard.
TeamChild opened its first office in Seattle in 1995, with support from an Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) grant and in-kind contributions from Columbia Legal Services (formerly Evergreen Legal Services) and The Defender Association. The Seattle office serves youth living in King County.
- In September 2014, our King County office welcomed a fourth staff attorney, Marisa Ordonia. As a Seattle University Leadership for Justice Fellow, Marisa will specifically work with youth returning from long-term incarceration.
- TeamChild King County partnered with the Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration’s LEAP program in 2010 by providing consultation and training to juvenile justice professionals working with youth transitioning out of detention and long-term incarceration.
- TeamChild was spotlighted in the September 2010 Equal Justice Newsletter. Read the interview with TeamChild’s Executive Director, Anne Lee, to hear her perspective on justice as it relates to children.
- TeamChild partnered with Everyone Has A Song (EHAS) in 2006. EHAS was a music education program affiliated with Seattle Public Schools for youth who were not succeeding in traditional schools. TeamChild staff taught classes on youth rights and the youth participants applied this new knowledge as they developed their music production skills. This program is unfortunately no longer in existence, but their music lives on – sample some of the students’ tracks below!
