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.
