Be a Champion of Youth: Standing With, By, and for Young People
Advocacy for youth means making a commitment to stand by, with, and for young people. Advocacy helps to generate a respect for youth and their issues among parishioners, business owners, Church leaders, elected officials, policy makers, and key community leaders.
Be a Champion of Youth: Standing With, By, and For Young People explores advocacy as an essential component of a comprehensive and life-changing Catholic youth ministry. This book can serve as a primer for individual coordinators of youth ministry to gauge their own advocacy efforts or it could form the basis for empowering an entire youth ministry team or parish.
