Effectively Employing and Supervising Youth Peer Advocates

Youth Peer Advocates (YPAs) are uniquely qualified to engage and support young people through their own lived experience and their ability to bridge the gap between young people and their services. With this, there are some unique – and some not so unique – considerations to effectively employ, supervise, and retain YPAs. In this webinar, we will explore the YPA's role, supervision needs, considerations regarding agency policies, and in-service training recommendations. Additionally, participants will be connected with ongoing resources available to support this process.
