Involving youth in advocacy efforts can be the difference-maker in successfully driving policy change. In an age where social media is opening the window to all forms of activism, youth can influence meaningful social, political, and environmental change.
However, public health programs often struggle to avoid common pitfalls when creating youth engagement programs for policy change. From a lack of clear and realistic objectives to competing stakeholder agendas and focusing on outcomes first, there are seemingly endless snags that can derail even the most well-intentioned initiatives.
Guided by CDC best practices on youth engagement, Rescue has developed proprietary youth engagement models that have resulted in significant state and local public health policy wins. For the last two decades, Rescue has incorporated youth and empowered them to leverage various tools at their fingertips.
In this new, complimentary 1-hour webinar, you will learn how to:
- Avoid common pitfalls that most state and local organizations fall into when creating a youth-led movement.
- Strike the perfect balance between digital and on-the-ground tactics for successful grassroots advocacy.
- Apply Rescue's evidence-based youth engagement models to revolutionize youth movements by providing a clear roadmap to effective policy solutions.
