Stoneleigh Foundation is looking for fellowship ideas

A call is out for people interested in working to change policy and practice across the child welfare system.

Investing directly in people rather than programs is what differentiates Stoneleigh Foundation from other grantmakers in the city.

The foundation, part of the Haas network, aims to improve outcomes for vulnerable youth through research, policy and practice through fellowships.

Those fellows — folks such as Rhonda McKitten, a former public defender working on how the Philadelphia Police Department interacts with youth, and Dominique Mikell, a researcher working on Philadelphia’s foster care policy with the Juvenile Law Center —  work across systems to create that change.

Now, Stoneleigh is accepting letters of interest from people who have “established track records in their fields of focus.”

Check it out below.
