Adolescent Health Center
Youth Represent is a holistic youth defense and advocacy non-profit organization that works in partnership with the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center to provide legal services to our adolescent patients and their families. It provides much needed legal advice and representation for young teenagers at risk on criminal, family, employment, education, public benefits and housing law-related matters. A common area of need is patients with disabilities, requiring an Individual Education Program (IEP). Youth Represent works closely with the NYC Department of Education to resolve these important issues. Youth Represent is staffed by an attorney and paralegal who provide services on site at the Adolescent Health Center four days a week.
