Recognizing the need for national, uniform safety standards to protect hundreds of thousands of students who travel internationally each year.
At present, there are no laws on the books to protect children's health and safety rights while entrusted to third parties, especially while participating in sanctioned student exchange and travel programs.
The T Hill Safety Standards For Children Who Travel Abroad will help assure parents that their children will be cared for while visiting foreign countries.
Sheryl and Alan Hill, whose son Tyler died while on a People to People Student Ambassador trip to Japan in June 2007, discuss the need for uniform safety standards to protect children traveling with third parties.
Children have been injured and abandoned. In severe cases, they have been denied health care, sometimes resulting in death.
The Hill’s have launched an advocacy Web site, www.tylerhill.org, to share Tyler's tragedy and advocate for safety protocols.
We, the undersigned, call on the State, Federal, and United States Senate entities, to elicit national, uniform safety standards to protect the hundreds of thousands of children as they travel abroad via third party entities.
The T Hill Safety Standards For Children Who Travel Abroad petition to Child Travel Ambassador Programs, Travel Agencies, and Alike was written by Sheryl Hill and is in the category Children's Rights at GoPetition.
