Advocacy Training

Advocacy Training

YWCA Mahoning Valley believes that advocacy works best when we all get involved, so we have designed a crash course training that helps people learn about how their government works, how to effectively reach out to legislators, and how to inspire others to do the same.

YWCA’s Amplify Your Voice advocacy training covers:

  • branches and levels of government and how to interact with each
  • understanding the legislative process
  • crafting compelling messages and formulating talking points
  • tips for reaching out to decision-makers

We offer a nonpartisan training that gives helps advocates understand actions they can take on issues they care about at every step of the policy-making process. Since January of 2017, we have trained over 300 individuals to become more effective advocates and been nominated for a YWCA USA Excellence in Advocacy Award.
