What's the deal with Youth Advocacy?

Foróige has established an advocacy section which seeks to build on youth participation whereby young people are actively being heard outside of the organisation. Advocacy is about seeking to influence decision makers to bring about a positive change. It can be done at a local level or at a national level. It generally involves the advocate speaking out on behalf of another person or a group on an issue affecting them.

In Foróige, we believe that the best placed people to advocate on behalf of young people are young people themselves.
