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.
As an MPAC ALP Fellow, participants will:
•Engage and learn from other emerging leaders within their group;
•Be engaged in learning through group trainings, self-study, case studies, and other strategies;
•Each cohort will identify advocacy goals and collectively work together to accomplish such goals within a year;
•Learn new skills to identify and prioritize advocacy opportunities to achieve target goals;
•Receive navigational support through the certification process to become a Maryland Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS);
•Impact the community by providing support services, informational sessions, education and advocacy.
