The Advocacy Corps is a 10 month-long program where young adults between the ages of 19-30 get paid to organize their local community around federal legislation. Advocacy Corps organizers connect local activists and leaders with their local member of Congress to affect big, long-term change. During the course of this program, Advocacy Corps organizers learn critical organizing skills and put them into practice with hands-on leadership experience.
