Youth Advocacy Guide

A growing youth movement across the country has developed a vast number of youth and young adult leaders who are passionate and experienced in sharing their stories to create positive systems change.

One area of advocacy has been that of transition. Transition includes the movement from the child to the adult system as well as the transition of youth to adult and the role changes involved. 

This guide has a total of seven stages and resources to go along with it for making your transitition to adulthood. 

This guide was developed from the personal experiences of youth and is intended for young people who have chosen to utilize their lived experience as a mechanism to advocate for positive change. To access, please click on the link below.
