Courageous Advocacy

Courageous Advocacy is the act of speaking out against an issue of injustice, often on behalf of those whose voice is not heard. Courage is needed to stand up for something or someone you believe in, especially when that choice is not the most popular.

At The William Alvey, we strive for all our children to leave school with the skills to become 'agents of change', so that they can make the world a better place, help those in need and stand up for causes they believe in.

As an introduction to this, each year group has chosen a courageous advocate, learnt about how they have made the world a better place and discussed how they can follow in their example.

Courageous advocacy requires a willingness to be vulnerable and to take a stand, even when it may not be popular or easy. It is a powerful way to effect change and make a positive impact on the world.
