UNICEF USA Youth Advocacy Training Application 2024 – Welcome to the application for the Youth Advocacy Training at UNICEF USA! We are so excited that you have considered joining to take your advocacy work to the next level! Below you can find detailed information about the Youth Advocacy Training:

Youth Advocacy Training

The Youth Advocacy Training supports US-based young people, ages 14-24, to build core advocacy skills for youth-led civic engagement. Using UNICEF’s Youth Advocacy Guide and workplan the training will teach you the process of advocacy, combining clear ‘how to’ steps with inspirational stories from other youth advocates who are striving to bring about change. Through four days of participatory, virtual workshops, you’ll learn to develop personal goals for your advocacy issue; tell your story; develop networking strategies; leverage the people and resources around you; and learn how to effectively communicate as an advocate. Throughout the training you will develop your very own advocacy action plan to guide your advocacy journey. You will also engage in mini-workshops on event planning, working with social media, peer coaching, and issue-based networking.

Who should apply?

The Youth Advocacy Training is designed for advocates at the beginning of their learning journey with advocacy. Participants should have some general knowledge and experience with advocacy and should have an advocacy issue in mind.

When is the training?

The training takes place virtually Monday, July 29th through Thursday, August 1st, 2024 and the sessions will be held from 12:00 PM – 2:30 PM Eastern Time daily. Participants must be available for all four sessions.

The training is highly participatory and participants will need to be at a computer, or a device larger than a phone, on Zoom, and able to work in google docs simultaneously. Those needing accommodations can request so in the application below.
