JCHS Fellows Spend Summer on Housing and Community Development

by David Luberoff
Senior Associate
In projects that ranged from efforts to get youth more involved in design issues in Philadelphia, to trying to improve health outcomes for Latino residents of Santa Ana, California, seven Joint Center for Housing Studies Community Service Fellows spent the summer working for non-profit and public entities throughout the United States. The fellowships, which are given to master’s level students at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, give opportunities to work with organizations that focus on housing, the built environment, and/or community development. Several students blogged about their work.
