Social Justice Learning Institute’s Youth Justice Fellowship Calls for Applicants

The Youth Justice Fellowship (YJF)  is seeking youth who are interested in being change-makers in their community.

YJF is an intensive leadership development program that engages an annual cohort of 10 youth leaders in community building, international travel,  and research skill development over the course of 12 months.

Participants will receive rigorous training in the academic and organizing skills needed to be transformative leaders. This immersive experience will serve them personally and in their community work for the rest of their lives. They will likely build lifelong friendships while studying and critiquing the harms generated by existing institutional models and practices concerning their research focus. They will investigate, analyze, and develop policy recommendations on the issue.

In parallel, we will experience the joy and depth of our own learning community. Participants will explore their personal passion and drive for social justice. They will meet other leaders and build community beyond their home place. We will also have a lot of fun! We will travel and bond over the course of this incredible learning journey and our lives will be changed for the better as a result. If this feels like a fit for you,  join us for this one-of-a-kind opportunity!
