advocacy accelerator

you’ve got the power:
level up your organization’s advocacy efforts

We believe every organization can – and must – be an effective advocate to reach their goals. Results Canada's Advocacy Accelerator is here to help you learn to use your voice effectively for the greatest impact.

who’s it for?

Advocacy Accelerator helps non-profits learn more about advocacy and level up their advocacy efforts. The program is targeted to Canadian non-profits with an international development focus, but we have adapted the content to other social justice non-profits both in Canada and around the world, as well as universities, foundations, governments, etc.

It was such an informative and frankly transformative session. I really enjoyed being part of it!
