Advocates for Children of New York, Inc. (AFC) is a not-for-profit organization that works in partnership with New York City's most disadvantaged families to secure quality public education services. AFC works on behalf of children and youth who are at greatest risk of academic failure due to poverty, race, ethnicity, disability, homelessness, immigration status/limited English proficiency, or involvement in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems. We use uniquely integrated strategies to advance systemic reform, empower families and communities, and advocate for the educational rights of individual students.
AFC seeks an attorney to join the School Justice Project (SJP) to provide direct representation, policy advocacy, litigation support, and community outreach to ensure that low-income students with behavioral challenges get the supports to which they are entitled so they can stay and succeed in school.
