Neva’s Youth Fellowship Update

Neva, one of our Child Welfare Youth Fellows, has wrapped up her time with Nebraska Appleseed!

As part of this experience, each fellow interviews a community professional in an area of interest to them, which helps them complete a written piece from a systemic perspective that highlights an aspect of the Child Welfare system that has impacted them or interests them. 

For her professional interview and piece from a systemic perspective, Neva spoke with several people who work within the child welfare system, gaining valuable insight into how child welfare reports and cases are handled. Read A Look Inside the Child Welfare System and about Neva’s Experience as an Appleseed Fellow on our blog.

Nebraska Appleseed’s Child Welfare Youth Fellowship Program hosts young people with lived experience in the foster care or juvenile justice system for a five-week, 30-hour, paid program to encourage and assist in their child welfare system advocacy, education, and system improvement work.

If you have any young people in mind for the fellowship program, or have questions or resources for our current fellows, please contact Schalisha at
