Juvenile Justice and Welfare Consciousness Week (JJ Week)


Proclamation No. 489 signed by former President Benigno S. Aquino III declared the 4th week of October as the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Consciousness Week (JJ Week) in conjunction with the annual celebration of the National Children’s Month. With the enactment of Republic Act No. 10661 or an Act declaring November of every year as National Children’s Month, the JJ Week is now being observed every 4th week of November.

Each year, the observance of the JJ Week focuses on relevant and timely topic concerning children and youth, especially those at risk and in conflict with the law and the juvenile justice and welfare system in the country. The week-long observance will also be a platform for the campaign on the full implementation of the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act (JJWA) Republic Act No. 9344 as amended by Republic Act No. 10630. Now on its 7th year, the JJ Week will be observed on November 25-29, 2018 which carries the theme “Lipunan, bata at magulang, Sabay-sabay para sa Kaunlaran!” The 7th JJ Week will focus on recognizing the Local Government Units with good practices in implementing the JJWA.
