MPAC Advocacy & Leadership Program
Supported by a grant from the Open Society Institute-Baltimore, the Maryland Peer Advisory Council (MPAC) endeavors to grow, structure, develop and organize the peer recovery community by creating an Advocacy & Leadership Fellowship Program. We will identify upcoming leaders to maintain a cohesive team to lead and advocate for the recovery community.
Collectively, MPAC’s Advocacy and Leadership Program was established to:
•remove barriers with system navigation for the certification process and testing;
•unify peers with cohorts and regional chapters;
•support peers to become effective advocates and community leaders across the state of Maryland.
As an MPAC ALP Fellow participants will:
•Engage and learn from other emerging leaders within their group;
•Be engaged in their own learning through group trainings, self-study, case studies, and other strategies;
•In their cohort, identify advocacy goals and commit to a year to accomplish them;
•Be provided the opportunity to learn new skills to identify and prioritize advocacy opportunities to achieve wins;
• Receive navigational support through the certification process to become a Maryland Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS);
• The MPAC ALP Fellowship will impact the general community by providing support services, informational sessions, education and advocacy.
