John and Marcia Goldman Foundation Grant

March 12, 2009

The John and Marcia Goldman Foundation has awarded the Youth Law Center and the Santa Clara University Law School a grant for leadership training.  The Youth Law Center will provide training and supervision to two to four Santa Clara University law students for ten weeks full-time this summer followed by part-time work during the academic year.  This grant will allow law students who have had direct involvement with the child welfare or juvenile justice system or who could not afford to do non-profit work the opportunity to experience non-profit work with direct and thoughtful supervision and the law students will provide a valuable addition to our work and enable us to expand our work on behalf of foster children and youth in the juvenile justice system.
