From Youth Advocate to Advocate for Youth

Youth Move National and the Research and Training Center for Pathways to Positive Futures produced a guide to help young leaders transitioning out of foster care share their stories and advocate for effective systems change. Just as youth may struggle transitioning to adulthood, young leaders often struggle with the transition from youth advocate to advocate for youth. Designed for youth between the ages of 15 and 30, as well as the adults that support them, Youth Advocate to Advocate for Youth: The Next Transition identifies seven stages in the journey to advocate for youth and provides tips and strategies to master this process. The guide also includes definitions of key terms and specific stage level resources.

Youth Advocate to Advocate for Youth: The Next Transition is available on the Research and Training Center for Pathways to Positive Futures website:
