Child Advocacy Training Module

LEND Advocacy Module (57KB) [download]

Briefly describe the activity and its purpose.

The LEND program at the Mailman Center for Child Development encourages innovation through individual and group advocacy projects. LEND trainees are encouraged to choose an issue that they are passionate about and do a literature search for updated information. Trainees then meet with a faculty mentor and a community-based organization to develop an advocacy plan that addresses the issue at a systems change level.

Briefly describe the positive impacts this activity has had on trainees.

Although trainees are only required to present their advocacy plans to faculty and peers, many trainees have subsequently worked to implement their plan at a local or regional level.
