Host a Pinkerton Fellow

Apply here to host a Pinkerton Fellow. Applications close on May 21, 2022.

The Pinkerton Policy Advocacy Fellowship provides John Jay undergraduate students with hands-on practical experience for advocacy organizations in New York City. Throughout their placements, they complete relevant coursework to enrich their fieldwork experiences.

Fellows apply their knowledge, skills, and abilities to advance their host organization’s goals and the field of policy and advocacy more broadly. Hosting a Tow Pinkerton is an incredible opportunity for host sites to build organizational capacity while developing the next generation of policy leaders.

Host sites address a variety of social and criminal justice issues in the juvenile justice field. While they represent a diversity of size, scope, and approach, all are engaged in various aspects of youth justice.

Why Host a Fellow?

  • Opportunity to deepen organizational capacity and reach.
  • Support and consultation for organizations and supervisors throughout the fellowship commitment.
  • A partnership with John Jay College and access to the intellectual resources it offers.
