Applications for Rural Arizona Advocates are now open!
Rural Arizona Advocates is a free semester-long program that is open to college-aged students in Coconino County. The curriculum, a combination of Youth Participatory Action Research and real-world experience, provides participants with the necessary tools to support the authentic engagement of young people in decision-making processes that affect their daily lives. Once the program is over, we provide participants with resources to put what they’ve learned to use. We provide participants with resources such as volunteer opportunities and paid positions that help them further develop the skills they’ve learned.
Meetings take place once a week from August to December 2023
Expectations of Participants:
We expect participants to be present and participate fully in the program at every session.
Participants must complete all readings, assignments, or any other prep work before each session.
Participants are required to attend a once-a-week in-person meeting. Participants will complete the required readings and video lessons between each session.
