Advocacy is essential to securing and sustaining funding for summer programs and everyone has a role to play in making the case to influential decision-makers. This workshop will assist program providers in translating the actions they perform as part of their daily lives, from data collection to Camp Olympics, into pieces of their advocacy plan.
