Voices for Impact Training
Arizona teacher leaders created this training to empower other educators to further strengthen their skills and knowledge to autonomously advocate for themselves and the teaching profession. Voices for Impact Training expands on the resources in the Engagement Toolkit created by the Arizona K12 Center, the Office of the Maricopa County School Superintendent, and cross-district teacher teams.
Participants will gain a deeper understanding of decision-making processes, educational funding, and storytelling. Through the Voices for Impact Training, each participant will identify an advocacy goal and scenario that they would like to address. The training also aims to support teacher leaders in broadening their network through collaboration and relationship building throughout the learning experience.
- Identify decision-makers, stakeholders, and influencers for a scenario related to their advocacy goal.
- Develop an understanding of where funding for education comes from at the state and federal levels and learn about and apply knowledge of regulations around each type of educational expenditure and funding source.
- Gain knowledge of what makes a story effective when connecting to an audience, apply techniques that build relationships through storytelling, identify their ‘why’, and create a story.
Registration includes breakfast, lunch, and materials.
All times listed are in MST/Phoenix, AZ time.
