Oklahoma Aging Advocacy Academy Accepting 2015 Applicants


The Oklahoma Aging Advocacy Leadership Academy is accepting applications for its class of 2015.

The academy provides free training for individuals to become volunteer community leaders and advocates for Oklahoma's aging population. Applications are being accepted until Dec. 31.

Applicants should demonstrate a willingness to utilize constructive advocacy techniques to effect social change as well as a commitment to build communities that include and value older persons and people with disabilities. They should also demonstrate sensitivity to people's needs and the ability to see things from the point of view of others.

Classes are conducted at the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Aging Services office in Oklahoma City. Each monthly class session meets Friday evening and Saturday. Classes are tentatively scheduled between February and November.
