Juvenile Law Center Training Teens, Young Adults on Juvenile Justice and Foster Care Advocacy

John Kelly, The Chronicle of Social Change •

The Philadelphia-based Juvenile Law Center, a public interest law firm focused on youth and family issues, is taking applications for its annual juvenile justice and foster care advocacy training program for youths with experience in either or both systems.

The Juveniles for Justice and Youth Fostering Change programs both bring groups of 16- to 22-year-olds together for weekly trainings between October and June. The point is for the group to learn advocacy skills together, and then develop an advocacy campaign.
