ProfilePost Graduate Fellowships The candidate will join Homeless Youth Project. The Homeless Youth Project serves youth who are homeless and unaccompanied (without parents or guardians). Some groups of youth are disproportionately represented among homeless youth; many of those served are LGBT youth, youth with mental illnesses, victims of sex trafficking and youth who have spent time in child welfare or juvenile justice placements. The Project brings legal services directly to homeless youth through the Projectâ€™s unique Mobile Legal Office, a professional office inside a customized van. To address systemic failures to meet the needs of homeless youth, the Project chairs the Homeless Youth Workgroup of Opening Doors-CT, working with state agencies and community-based providers to develop and implement statewide systemic reforms that will provide an integrated response to the needs of homeless youth. Knowledge of childrenâ€™s issues or education systems is a plus. Must have excellent legal research and writing skills, and the ability and interest to address public policy issues. 3L or law school graduates to apply.
