The work we do revolves around young people…and we want young people to be engaged in our work.
There are many benefits from being involved:
There are many different ways to be involved– so that we hear your voice, consider your perspective and learn from you.
One way we hear from young people is through our Youth Advisory Panel. The Youth Advisory Panel is a group of eight to ten youth who are appointed to the Panel for a period of two years to provide advice, feedback and information to our office on a variety of matters.
Another way we hear from young people is through our Friends of the Advocate program. If you are a youth under 24 years old and interested in being involved with our office, consider signing up to be a Friend! As a Friend of the Advocate, you will be invited to participate in various opportunities offered by our office. Through regular (monthly) communication, you will be informed of upcoming opportunities and events where you can become involved and provide your input.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Friend, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
