2016 Young Advocates Institute

The North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCCASA) is excited to open registration for the 2016 Young Advocates Institute, July 15-17, 2016 at North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, NC!

Launched in 2012, the Young Advocates Institute is a social justice summer camp that empowers and trains 200 youth, ages 13-17, from across North Carolina during a weekend of prevention/intervention education, advocacy and leadership development seminars. The purpose of the Young Advocates Institute is to give youth a voice, the opportunity to share their experiences regarding social justice issues, and to help them become an integral part of the solutions. The Institute features national speakers, peer to peer education, campus tours, and team building activities.

This year marks the Institute’s Fifth Year Anniversary! The 2016 Young Advocates Institute Advisory Council has been working hard to ensure that the 5th Birthday of the Young Advocates Institute is nothing shy of EPIC! There is already a strong “buzz” about this year’s Institute, so we encourage you, your friends, and  your community to register early.

The cost to attendees for 2.5 nights of suite-style lodging, six (6) meals, six (6) snacks,  two (2) t-shirts, book bags and training is $35 per person.  Ten (10) scholarships will be offered to youth in need of financial assistance. If your child or group needs financial assistance, please complete the scholarship form enclosed in the youth registration materials.

Registration is now open. The firm deadline to submit a completed application is May 27, 2016. No exceptions. See the links below for registration materials!
