Kentucky Youth Advocates

About this resource

As the lobbyist for kids, we work with legislators, the governor, and other elected officials to change and enact policies to benefit kids and families. We help families through our case advocacy program. We serve as their guide when they don't know where to turn. We conduct research and education that informs and recommends solutions to help kids succeed. We mobilize advocates to take action on behalf of kids and families through rallies, advocacy training, partnerships, and action alerts. We present the "state of kids" to communities to help people know how children are faring and how to address problems. We engage youth by training the next generation of leaders to advocate for themselves and their communities.
