New York Labor Law defines a child performer as anyone under the age of 18 who renders artistic or creative services. The Model Alliance decided this needed to change. On June 9th, , members of the Model Alliance were joined by Senators Jeffrey Klein and Diane Savino at a press conference at Lincoln Center to announce proposed legislation that would afford child models in New York those protections. Effective November 20, , child models who live or work in New York State are covered by NY's Labor Law and applicable regulations as child performers. There, you will also find any necessary documents and forms to ensure compliance under the law.

How to Get Your Kids Started In the World of Child Modeling
On almost any media outlet, you can see wide-eyed, beautiful kids showing off the latest kids couture, being pictured with the must-haves for the season. And as their mom, who studied television production and worked in both the entertainment industry and in the fashion world, I must admit I love everything about both. Despite having a whole brood of children, I will definitely go the distance for them, but how do they even get started as a child model? First things first… You must have the right arsenal of recent images, no more than a few weeks old.
The MOCHA project has spent three years identifying and critically assessing the differing models of child primary health care that are used across Europe. Twenty partners used local agents, networks, and literature to assess aspects including structural, cultural, sociological and political. This work is currently being updated and will be available as an e-book in Spring Download the Conference Report. If you would like to contact us regarding further analysis of the MOCHA data or with more detailed inquires, please get in touch via the Contact Us page.
A role model is a person who serves as an example by influencing others. For many children, the most important role models are their parents and caregivers. Children look up to a variety of role models to help shape how they behave in school, relationships, or when making difficult decisions. Children also look up to other relatives, teachers, coaches, and peers. Children may try to copy the behavior and appearance of celebrities, such as athletes and entertainers, and characters from books, TV, movies, or video games.
