Mission Statement

We are a nationally recognized group of professionals dedicated to promoting and protecting the health, welfare, and safety of our young workers as they enter the working world. We do this through informing businesses, educators, parents, and young workers about their rights and responsibilities in the workplace. Our primary focus is young worker health and safety, however, we believe all workers can benefit from the information we provide to ensure all workplaces can be safe and prosperous.

To improve the health, safety and education of young workers of Connecticut by: 

  • Ensuring that young workers have a  healthy and safe working environment;
  • Preventing injuries and illnesses, disability and disease;
  • Enforcing compliance with wage and hour standards;
  • Prohibit and prevent employment in hazardous occupations;
  • Educate and training of students, educators and employers on child labor laws and regulations.
