TIME Model – 4 Components

A youth or young adult advocate is a person who has
lived experience in one or more child serving systems
who use their personal stories as a mechanism to
create messages for system change.
Youth Advocacy places youth and young adults in a
position of vulnerability as they face the thoughts,
feelings, emotions, places, people and activities that
are potential triggers to their trauma backgrounds.
