Universal Children’s Day
On November 20th, 1959, the United Nations officially adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. On the same day, three decades later, the UN adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. With these historic steps forward, Universal Children’s Day has been used for the last 60 years to inform and celebrate the rights of all children, all over the world.
Coaches Across Continents has worked for a decade with a foundation built off of these two documents. We have used them to design curriculum, to create Child Rights policies, and to guide our global network towards a deeper understanding of Children’s Rights.
This year, with CAC’s focus on Education Outside the Classroom, we have modeled a brand new curriculum built off UNICEF’s 8 International Safeguards for Children in Sport.
Different from typical curriculums, this resource is targeted towards the training of staff, coaches, referees, volunteers, parents, supporters and young leaders involved in youth sports, not necessarily the youth themselves (though youth can definitely gain valuable skills and knowledge through playing).

Happy Universal Children’s Day!
