Through LSPY, LCYC provides legal advice, mediation, and in-court advocacy to youth (12-24 years) who are or are at risk of becoming homeless in King County. The staff attorney must be able to build a professional and trusting relationship with youth, counsel youth in an understanding and developmentally appropriate manner, and provide youth with superb legal advocacy.
