What is CCA?
Certified Community Advocate Training (CCA) is a training program designed to create a “plugged-in” community of grassroots advocacy equipped and ready to serve the community.
What does that mean?
It means that teachers, medical professionals, church volunteers, and anyone who wants to invest in this community can learn how they can do their part! You’ll learn the skills and tools to interact with and assist anyone looking for help or resources in the West Yavapai County communities. You’ll be able to link your neighbors, friends, congregation, patients, or customers to resources that may be used during a crisis or any other special need.
The full day training will include presentations from local agencies, a resource manual, and important sessions to gain the skills to ask the right questions and support the needs on individuals and families in our local rural community.
All resources and materials distributed at the training are up-to-date to ensure that Community Advocates can respond to individual and family crises with accurate information. Resources can change quickly in the community, so while we work to have the most current info, always call organizations directly to ensure it is still accurate!
