We're so excited to offer a new opportunity this fall for young people of NYC to get involved with RAP and their communities! We're recruiting six young people to serve as paid policy fellows. The fellows will spend 9 months researching a social justice issue affecting their community and, with the support of RAP, develop a campaign to tackle this issue head on! Sound interesting? Read some thoughts below from Yacine and Angelis, the YouthVoiceNYC interns who helped develop the fellowship, on why this opportunity could be perfect for you!
