PHENND Fellows - Nonprofit Track - Juvenile Law Center
Established as the first public interest law firm in the country for children and young adults, The Juvenile Law Center continues a legacy of providing advocacy for rights, dignity, equity and opportunity for youth in the child welfare and justice systems. While the scope of the programming may change its focus remains on a world that affirms the unique and developmentally distinct qualities of youth, guarantees fair and equitable treatment, and ensures opportunities for successful adulthood. PHENND Fellows is a program that fosters young non-profit leaders who seek to expand the infrastructure for community partnership development across Philadelphia. Through its Nonprofit Track, it places passionate and talented college graduates at local non-profits as AmeriCorps VISTA members. This track has a three-fold mission: (1) Support local nonprofits fighting poverty across a wide range of issues, (2) Train and retain local talent to stay and work in Philadelphia, and (3) Develop the next generation of nonprofit leaders. During the 2019-2020 program year, 35 PHENND Fellows will actively build capacity in local organizations and participate in extensive professional development as a cohort. This program is run by PHENND (The Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development), a 30-year-old consortium of over 25 colleges and universities in the Greater Philadelphia region. The consortium actively seeks to revitalize local communities and promote civic responsibility through service learning among the region's higher education institutions. If you want to help build sustainable solutions in Philadelphia, please apply.

Member Duties : This project will seek to meet the needs of transition aged youth in Philadelphia who are at high risk for homelessness and poor outcomes as adults by connecting them with needed resources and supports primarily through the use of a web based app called Youth Matters: Philly App. The VISTA will aim to increase the awareness of and use in the community of the app. They will also work with our tech team to improve the functionality of the app, as well as collect and refine the resources that are inputted. By empowering young people and providing them the tools to easily access resources, we aim to address poverty by facilitating the connection between youth and the services they need. We also believe that the VISTA’s outreach work will help Juvenile Law Center identify gaps in services for young people that can shape our work.
