Black Youth Mental Health Conference Series (Yale Child Study Center)

Dr. Amanda Calhoun, a Child Psychiatry fellow at Yale, will be directing the first Black youth mental health clinical case conference series at Yale Child Study Center happening between January-June 2024. Each month, a student or resident will present a complex clinical case and expert discussants will weigh in.  We will be going far beyond the clinical to discuss history, racist dynamics, and more.  All disciplines welcome. In person and virtual component offered. Dinner will be served.  Yalies can register here:

EDST Coffee Chats

Education Studies Coffee Chats are back! To participate, use this spreadsheet to connect with another ed-interested student. Each pair will receive a $10 gift card to Koffee?, which you can pick up at Tea and Cookies (Fridays from 2-3 PM, across from HQ C-45).

Become a Full-Time Innovation Fellow for Legends 

Legends, an app for parents + kids, is trying to address the youth mental health crisis and build preventative skills to address anxiety + depression. They’re leveraging story, research-based mental health micro-interventions, and parent engagement best practices…and needless to say, having a lot of fun. 

Legends is looking to hire a full-time Innovation Fellow for an 8-month term (to potentially extend) to support the design and lead the implementation of a new approach to school that leads to kids who are confident, capable, and engaged – rather than burned out and turned off. (Specifically: personalized learning in core subjects, daily wellness education, and a majority of the day spent in thoughtfully-designed project-based learning in topics a kid is genuinely passionate about.)  

They’d work with a team of educational experts to design the pilot program, and then implement it with 3-8 kids over six months. They’d need to be willing to relocate internationally (likely to Greece) for an extended period of time. Full job (and program) description is here. It’s an exciting opportunity for an early-career leader to build something innovative from scratch, with an experienced team committed to your success. Looking for someone who has both incredible hands-on skills with kids and great strategic program design instincts.
