All children and youth deserve a fair chance
At the Center for Children & Youth Justice (CCYJ), we’re changing the way young people experience the child welfare and juvenile justice systems—for the better. By listening to young people and working with partners across Washington State, we’re helping to redesign our child welfare and juvenile justice systems to meet children and youth’s unique needs. Every year we help improve the lives of 50,000 young people.
CCYJ with Pathwaves WA are looking for BIPOC candidates for their Early Childhood Policy Fellowship in Washington state.
Each fellow in the Early Childhood Policy Fellowship program will be employed full-time and placed at one of Pathwave WA’s placement sites (which span across public, nonprofit, and philanthropic sectors) in a policy role, including CCYJ.
The work fellows do will include advocacy, community organizing and mobilization, policy and fiscal analysis, media and communications focused on policy and advocacy, policy research, and/or policymaking support of organizations working in policy.
Beyond full-time employment, the benefits of joining the Fellowship also include:
- Professional development, including mentorship and executive coaching — each Fellow will have opportunities to refine their leadership skills, expand their knowledge of early childhood policy, and develop policy solutions using antiracist approaches
- Becoming part of a growing network of leaders of color in the early childhood policy field
To learn more about the Fellowship, RSVP to an info session or apply, visit pathwaveswa.org/fellowship/
