Youth Advocacy Opportunities

La Center United is looking for 3 youth who are interested in gaining leadership and advocacy skills. They will have the opportunity to attend the following trainings at no cost:

Youth Advocacy Training; December 21st, 2018, Washougal, WA
Students will learn how to become a successful advocate for prevention issues with this interactive, hands-on workshop. They will learn how to:
• Become and effective advocate for what you’re passionate about
• How to build relationships with elected officials and their staff
• All about the legislative process, including connections to help you track issues
• How to include youth leaders in advocacy and policy development

Prevention Policy Day; January 21st, 2019, Olympia, WA
Prevention Policy Day is organized and hosted by the Washington Association for Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention (WASAVP) and Thurston Together. Prevention Policy Day hosts youth and youth advisors from around the state at our state’s capital to talk about the importance of prevention in their communities and schools with their state legislators. At this event students will get to use what they learned at the Youth Advocacy Training and apply it with their representatives at the State Capitol.

National Leadership Conference; February 3-7, 2019, Washington D.C.
This intensive competency-based leadership training teaches strategies to create and nurture the growth of committed young leaders through their work within coalitions. The Youth Leadership Initiative helps youth and their adult coaches develop an action plan that clearly defines strategies that young leaders will carry out to address the problems and goals that the coalition is striving to affect. They will also get to meet with their U.S. Representatives and practice their advocacy skills again in Washington D.C.

Deadline to apply: December 13th, 2018
