Leverage the power of your volunteer roster by engaging volunteers in true advocacy efforts; if they feel their skills are coveted and important, you will likely gain a more engaged and active group of people to assist in your mission.
Set up the expectation that volunteers are elevated advocates. Make orientation and open houses about advocacy. Welcome the attendees and tell them what actions they can do to help. Give them an advocacy sheet outlining your mission, your work and verbiage to use when advocating. Equip them with pamphlets to pass out. Show them your interactive website.
