Strongheart’s mission is to advance social change by empowering and amplifying the voices of individuals with lived experience, whose perspectives are desperately needed to inform and inspire change in both global and local contexts.
These individuals are the ones whose perspectives should be at the heart of designing policies and programs for the issues that have affected them.
Their insights and messages can move innovative and effective solutions to the forefront of global agendas.
Their voices can inspire change in communities throughout the world.
Strongheart’s Change Agent Program
Strongheart partners with individuals of lived experiences, who have overcome adversity and trauma, and work with them to become advocates for the issues they have experienced and are passionate about. We provide strategic planning, partnership development, comprehensive training, and ongoing support to the individuals we partner with through our Change Agent Program. Once equipped with advanced communications skills, advocacy skills, and subject matter expertise beyond their personal experience, their voices and stories take on new power on global stages, in the media, and at decision making tables. Together, we illuminate solutions and drive social change.
