Additional Information:
This webinar will highlight two system reform efforts from Models for Change core state Washington, that emphasize the inclusion of young people in advocacy efforts. These examples will illustrate how engaging youth in advocacy has dual outcomes: (1) Youth voice serves an effective advocacy tool and often provides a perspective that moves leaders to implement change, and (2) including young people in reform efforts empowers them to become the next generation of advocates, while also developing their leadership and life skills.
