PATCH Youth Advocacy Fellowship
The Wisconsin PATCH Youth Advocacy Fellowship empowers young people, ages 12-21, to grow as leaders and young activists by making their voices heard in community and state level conversations. The Fellowship spans the course of 9-months (September –May) with continual engagement and learning via paid enrichment meetings, individual learning modules, and the development of an individual Community Advocacy Project. Youth Advocates also serve as consultants, bringing youth voice to the projects and initiatives of individuals, organizations, and systems working to improve adolescent health throughout Wisconsin.
