Recruitment for the third year of JfKL’s Advocacy Year graduate scheme has begun. Advocacy Year expands JfKL’s holistic model of support into East London by training graduates to work as community-based youth advocates for a year. Our graduates work with under-supported children and young people to help protect their legal rights and improve their lives. The project has already made a difference to young people in over 600 separate cases.

Successful graduates gain hands-on experience, tackling issues around care, immigration, school exclusions and homelessness. They will also receive expert mentoring.
