Rights Advocate Training

In order to become a Rights Advocate, you must be available for the two initial training sessions for your role.

Training is delivered online by video link, so you can do it from home, school or a cafe with a laptop or smartphone. If you don’t have access to these, you can dial in from a regular phone.

What are the training sessions?

Session 1 – Every Rights Advocate gets an introductory training with their local team. In this 2-hour session your team of four Local Leads get to meet each other, get introduced to the campaign and start setting goals.

Session 2 – The second session is a 1.5 hour specialised training for your Local Lead role – strategy, communications, events or fundraising. This session will be a skill share and brainstorm with Rights Advocates from other parts of the country in the same Local Lead role as you, so you can build ideas together and start planning your next steps. There’ll be more opportunities for these specialised trainings as your campaigns take shape.

When are the training sessions?

If you’re selected as a Rights Advocate, you’ll need to attend both of these sessions. Check the dates below to see if you’re available, then put them in your diary and keep them free!
