Future Leaders program
What: The Hemophilia Council of California’s (HCC’s) Future Leaders Program provides leadership training and advocacy tools for teens and young adults affected by bleeding disorders. Leading up to Legislative Day, they find out more about their role in the government process. Future Leaders also learn how to be effective advocates for themselves and their families.
Future Leaders connect with their peers and have fun! Participants hear from both Legislative Staffers and Future Leaders alumni. During Legislative Day, they also meet with their legislators (or legislative staff) via Zoom. Young Future Leader advocates learn to tell their stories, and they find inspiration to share their voice where it matters most.
