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.
