Knowledge Is Power
At regional "Knowledge is Power" advocacy trainings, 250 parents receive training and information regarding state and federal budget cuts. They are engaged in a variety of training techniques such as role plays, power point presentations, story-telling workshops, etc in order to meet the needs of all participants. This is an important step in the leadership development of new parent advocates who are introduced to budget advocacy for the first time. It is also an opportunity for seasoned parent leaders to plan and facilitate parts of the training.
