The word POLICY is spelled out on wooden blocks. Above, a building and lawn are pictured behind a closed gate. The sign on the gate reads: State of Washington - Department of Social and Health Services - Naselle Youth Camp. To the right of the photo there is an illustration of a hand and finger pushing a computer key with the word POST. TeamChild logo appears below.

Closing Naselle Youth Camp – a look at TeamChild’s approach to policy

As TeamChild moves into our second year of supporting a policy team, we have given a lot of thought to how we make policy decisions. We work to center our anti-racism principals in all of our decisions, especially policy decisions that are intended to improve the experiences of youth who are impacted by incarceration, court systems, and other oppressive systems.

Reflections on Legislative Session

Many decisions are made each session about young people. We hope TeamChild’s work in the policy realm will align with our mission & values, to center youth in this process.

State Policy and TeamChild’s Direct Advocacy

TeamChild supported the end to Parent Pay because we know from our clients and their families, that one important way to support a young person returning home from a time of incarceration is to make sure their family is as strong as they can be economically.
