Gain tools and understanding to become effective advocates, whether you are working on personal needs (case advocacy) or larger issues (class advocacy). Advocates need to develop consensus, value the principle of WII-FM (what’s in it for me), craft a coherent and achievable message, gather meaningful data, and develop an advocacy agenda that can succeed. Presenters will highlight the importance of and strategies for effective youth and adult partnerships in all advocacy efforts.

Presented by NACAC staff members Kim Stevens and Kayla VanDyke. 2016
