The Activist Toolkit — Developing the Skills to Become a Trained Citizen Advocate

The activist toolkit is a step-by-step guide to introduce yourself, new volunteers, and other community activists to concrete actions you can take to develop skills as effective citizen activists. They provide you with the tools necessary to achieve success as an advocate and as a group.

Each skill builds upon the next within each grouping. You can choose to accomplish them in order or skip around. These how-to's are designed to challenge and inspire you as you grow as an advocate. By attempting and accomplishing each one, you build skill, talent, and confidence in exercising your personal and political power. As always, the RESULTS staff are available to explain and coach you as you take these actions.

Good luck and have fun!
