Episode No. 3: Eddie Ferrer, DC Lawyers For Youth

Eddie Ferrer — who I went to Georgetown University with (he graduated a couple of years ahead of me) — is the Chief Operating Officer (read: jack of all trades) for DC Lawyers for Youth, a (obviously) DC-based non-profit focusing on issues around youth and the court system. In this, Episode 3 of All In A Day’s Work, I got to talk to Eddie about his organization, the model for funding and PR, how it compares with his law firm jobs, and why the wrong message about District youth is out there. You’ll learn a lot about what the organization is doing — and the highs and lows of running a non-profit as well. Hopefully you find it informative.

You can always subscribe to the podcast at this link. Meanwhile, below you can meet one of their “Young Achievers” (the program is referenced in the podcast) from last spring.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
