YOUTH ADVOCACY LEARNING SERIES

While the PATCH Youth Advocacy Learning Series is integrated into the Fellowship, we've been thrilled to share the content and resources with others who work with youth and want to help them grow as leaders and activists. This 7-step process helps youth become aware of their community’s adolescent health needs, choose an advocacy topic of interest (self-chosen or themed based on organization), and begin to identify the people and actions that can lead to positive change.

 

  • STEP 1: COMPLETING A NEEDS ASSESSMENT
  • STEP 2: CHOOSING AN ISSUE FOR ADVOCACY
  • STEP 3: IDENTIFYING INFLUENCIAL LEADERS
  • STEP 4: HOLDING LEADERS ACCOUNTABLE
  • STEP 5: BUILDING YOUR ADVOCACY PLAN
  • STEP 6: HOSTING A RELATIONAL MEETING
  • STEP 7: SHARING YOUR SUCCESS!
The Advocacy Learning Series helped me actually take action and do the things that helped me advocate for a change.
