Webinar Series – Bonus Session: Youth Advocacy: How, When, What, and Why?

Have you been nagged or nudged by any of the following inquiries?

• How do I advocate for my children?
• When should I advocate for them?
• What areas would they appreciate support?
• Why am I advocating?

If yes, let’s get into it, using real scenarios! Bring at least two examples that reflect a current challenge you’re personally experiencing around youth advocacy and Maleka, Bria, and a special guest along with other participants will sort through it together.

Register here.
