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. This book explores advocacy as an essential component of a comprehensive and life-changing Catholic youth ministry. It 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.
