Texas Students Visit Voices
Students from the International School of the Americas, a magnet school of the Northeast Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas, visited Voices this week. Terrylynn Tyrell, Voices’ Senior Director of Government Affairs and Policy gave pointers on how the student could advocate for making a difference in the lives of children. Topics discussed included strategic advocacy, messaging, meeting with members of Congress, audience development and planning advocacy, and career paths for advocates. This information will be used as the students develop a project to address child mortality in Bexar County and as their advocate for children in the future.
