YOUTH POWER! is pleased to offer the Mental Health Waiver Youth Peer Advocacy Training for Youth Peer Advocates working in the OMH Waiver. This training will provide information about the waiver, its core services, and how they intersect and compliment the services of Youth Peer Advocates.
Over two days, this training will address key principles of the waiver — peer support and advocacy — and explore and practice competencies Youth Peer Advocates will need for their work with young people in their local communities.
