Advocacy Ambassadors is a program for families, educators, school leaders, and community members to learn how to listen, activate and mobilize their communities to drive student-centered policy and leadership in education. Participants will learn important tools in advocacy and community organizing, the ins and outs of education policy, and how they can be a force for change in their community.
- Advocacy Ambassadors will complete a 6 month program beginning in April, 2024 and concluding at the end of September 2024.
- All participants will receive a $1,500 stipend to compensate them for their time and expertise; childcare and transportation support will be available upon request.
- The program will consist of up to 32 participants: families, educators, school leaders, and community members are eligible to participate.
- Throughout the 6 months, Ambassadors will learn how policy shapes our educational landscape, the power that advocacy has to disrupt inequities, and how community engagement provides resources that help us serve the entirety of a student’s needs. Ambassadors will focus their work on listening to the issues our communities care most about by implementing Denver Families Kitchen Table Survey and will work towards showcasing the results of that survey at an Issues Assembly (public meeting with elected officials and community members) in September of 2024
