Junior Special Program- Advocates for Children

The 2016-2018 Director of Junior Clubs’ special program is called the “Hopeful Campaign”.  This campaign hopes to bring awareness to and advocate for homeless children.  As these children are prone to becoming victims of human trafficking, there is a secondary focus on this issue.  The Juniors of South Carolina intend to bring hope to these youth of the Palmetto State.

Advocates for Children Week - Sunday, October 22nd - Saturday, October 28th

  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened in 1962. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
