Advocacy Training Curriculum

Everything you need to host and run your own in-person advocacy training.

The foundation of all Be Our Voice trainings, both in-person and online, is the Advocacy Resource Guide and Advocacy Toolbox. These resources were developed in concert with our National Partners during Phase 1 of the project. Used together, they provide all information necessary to turn a healthcare professional or community partner into an advocate for policy changes that support health living for kids!

Meeting Materials
While each training will have its own unique characteristics and challenges, the following sample documents and resources can be used to plan and implement the more general aspects of an in-person training.
