Here are YALSA's answers to what advocacy is and isn't, what it takes to be an effective advocate for teens, how to practice advocacy skills and techniques, how to be a day-to-day advocate for teens, and how to set up a succesful long-term library teen services advocacy initiative. Front-line public and school librarians working in young adult services will find the volume useful as they will be able to use the information included every day to successfully advocate with administrators, colleagues, community members, and government officials. You get examples of advocacy campaigns from inside and outside of the library world that demonstrate basic principles of successful advocacy efforts, and you will learn to navigate the barriers of time and funding.
