January 21, 2020: Join us for Advocacy Day!

POSTED ON December 11, 2019

On January 21st, join advocates from expanded learning, mentoring, and youth-serving organizations for Youth Development Advocacy Day in Olympia! Have your voice heard by legislators on the importance of youth development programming such as expanded learning, mentoring, and case management. Youth development is critical in helping our children and youth succeed in school and life. Advocacy training, materials, lunch, and a continental breakfast will be provided. Youth are encouraged to attend! Last year we had over 140 attendees. Together we can top that this year. Register here!

Make sure to follow YDEKC on social media for real time updates: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.
