Youth Leadership Development

Young people have historically been at the forefront of movements for change. Even though they aren’t of voting age yet, we treasure every opportunity to help empower youth to have their voices heard. Last night, we had the honor and privilege of presenting our Advocacy Workshop for students from the Newport News Mayor’s Youth Commission. We covered parts and powers of government, how to track legislation that interests them, and equipped them with the information to know exactly who each of their elected officials are and how to contact them. We left them with the challenge of finding a bill they support or oppose and contacting the Governor to encourage action. If you would like us to present an Advocacy Workshop for your organization or group, message us today! We’d love to work with you! #ItStartsHere #AdvocacyWorks
