Rhonda Puntney Gould and I presented on the topic of youth services advocacy at the 2014 PLA Conference in Indianapolis. After starting with advocacy efforts within one’s own organization, we discussed progressively larger platforms for advocacy, including in the community, at the state and national levels, within professional organizations, and on social media. We also discussed strategies for effectively advocating for youth services at each of these levels.
Content was originally developed with Marge Loch-Wouters, who was unable to attend the conference. Additional resources are available on the presentation Pinterest page and on a blog post shared simultaneously with the live presentation. The Prezi that accompanied the presentation is below.
