Young Invincibles, Young Advocate Program
The Young Advocates Program is a leadership development program of Young Invincibles (YI), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose mission is to amplify the voices of young adults in the political process and expand economic opportunity for our generation. YI focuses on cultivating and empowering young and courageous leaders who are advancing economic justice, changing the narratives that perpetuate systemic inequity, and championing transformative policy change to make higher education more affordable, expand healthcare access, and secure quality jobs. 

Young Advocates will come together weekly for virtual sessions, with occasional extended sessions for special workshops. In addition to regular virtual sessions, Young Advocate members will have to attend special events in person, attend one-on-one meetings with program staff virtually, and have skill-building assignments to complete between sessions that may be either in person or virtual. 

Program Start Date: September 13, 2024 
Program End Date: December 06, 2024
