Advocacy Trainings

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. 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.
