|Know an advocate or organizer who wants to set the youth justice world on fire?
The National Juvenile Justice Network (NJJN) is now accepting applications to the 2016-17 Youth Justice Leadership Institute.
The Institute is a robust, year-long fellowship program run by the National Juvenile Justice Network that focuses on elevating and supporting advocates and organizers who reflect the communities most affected by youth justice system practices and policies. We strongly encourage people of color to apply.
Each year, 10 fellows from across the country are selected to develop their leadership and advocacy skills in the context of a robust curriculum around youth justice reform. The fellowship is completed concurrently with fellows’ current employment, so fellows do not have to leave their jobs to participate in the Institute. The fellowship includes two fully financed retreats, mentoring and frequent distance learning opportunities.
Interested in learning more about the Institute, or know someone who might be? NJJN will be hosting two informational webinars on March 30, 2016 and April 4, 2016, led by the Institute’s coordinator, Diana Onley-Campbell. (You only need to register for one.) To learn more, follow the link below, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
