"As a summer of service nears ... a look back" by Joanna Smiley, The Consultation Center at Yale
Even as the winter finally begins to melt away, summer is very much on the minds of those who have applied for 2015 Yale President’s Public Service Fellowships. Based on their talents and interests, the successful candidates are now being matched with 50 non-profit and public-sector agencies, where they will work for eight weeks on a variety of initiatives.

A community based, multidisciplinary organization, TCC promotes health, wellness, and social justice throughout New Haven as well as the state and national levels. The non-profit center, which is affiliated with the Division of Prevention & Community Research in the Yale Department of Psychiatry, conducts research and evaluation, promotes youth, adult and community development, and manages community training programs for staff across Connecticut. Here TCC communication specialist Joanna Smiley talks with Hinchey about her partnership with the center as a President’s Public Service Fellow.
