All children have the potential to succeed.

Technical Assistance & Consultation

TeamChild collaborates closely with other advocates working with vulnerable youth.  TeamChild attorneys regularly provide technical assistance and consultation to other professionals working with youth, including public defenders, legal aid attorneys and other social service providers.

Since 2008, under the MacArthur Foundation Models for Change Initiative, TeamChild’s Special Counsel also has provided technical assistance and mentoring to juvenile public defenders across Washington State.  Requests relate to all aspects of juvenile defense representation including trial skills, dispositional advocacy and keeping kids out of adult court.
