Promoting quality education for all.

The GCE-US Youth Advocacy Training is a biannual training program that not only equips students and young professionals with information about education for all but also trains them in ways to tell others. 

As a GCE-US Youth Advocacy Leader, you will work with and learn from our coalition members about how to advocate for equal access to quality education worldwide. You will also gain knowledge and skills in advocacy, coalition-building, grassroots organizing and the legislative process. In addition, you will have the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. for the GCE-US Advocacy Summit.

This training program is the beginning of a long-term experience in advocacy for global education. Each participant will take the tools learned at the training home to his/her own community and engage in monthly actions for at least a 3 month commitment period with support from the GCE-US team. 

The Youth Advocacy Learning Series will take place from Fall 2018 to Spring 2019.

Please subscribe to GCE-US to receive updates about the next Advocacy Summit training. 

Participation in the online learning series is open to all youth, who are 18-25 years old and permanently reside in the U.S.  You must complete the application and submit a letter of recommendation from a person who can speak to your involvement on your campus or in your community. Youth are not required to attend the Advocacy Summit, but it is a wonderful opportunity to network with nonprofit professionals, acquire advocacy skills and meet policymakers.
