Thank you for your interest in nominating a young woman to The Youth Justice Leadership & Community Advocacy Fellowship program. The program is a 6-month fellowship opportunity with Code Switch: Restorative Justice for Girls of Color. It will run from January 2020 through June 2020. The program helps young women develop leadership and self-advocacy skills by preparing them to lead change efforts in their community.
Fellows will participate in bi-monthly restorative sister circles and workshops, group & peer mentored experiences, community events, service opportunities, conferences (local and national), and a culminating excursion to the African American Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C..
