UNICEF Youth Advocacy Training Application – July 2024(Free and stipend available)


Welcome to the Youth Advocacy Training application at UNICEF USA! UNICEF is thrilled that you are considering joining this program to elevate your advocacy work. Below, you will find detailed information about the Youth Advocacy Training program.

Youth Advocacy Training

The Youth Advocacy Training supports US-based young people, ages 14-24, in building core advocacy skills for youth-led civic engagement. Using UNICEF’s Youth Advocacy Guide and workplan, the training will teach you the process of advocacy, combining clear “how-to” steps with inspirational stories from other youth advocates striving to bring about change.

Through four days of participatory, virtual workshops, you will:

  • Develop personal goals for your advocacy issue.
  • Learn to tell your story effectively.
  • Develop networking strategies.
  • Leverage people and resources around you.
  • Communicate effectively as an advocate.

Throughout the training, you will develop your very own advocacy action plan to guide your journey. You will also engage in mini-workshops on event planning, working with social media, peer coaching, and issue-based networking.

Who Should Apply?

The Youth Advocacy Training is designed for advocates at the beginning of their advocacy journey. Participants should have some general knowledge and experience with advocacy and should have an advocacy issue in mind.

When is the Training?

The training takes place virtually from Monday, July 29th to Thursday, August 1st, 2024, with sessions held daily from 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern Time. Participants must be available for all four sessions.

The training is highly participatory. Participants will need to be on a computer or a device larger than a phone, using Zoom and Google Docs simultaneously. Accommodations can be requested in the application below.

Selected participants will receive a stipend of $125 at the end of the training.
