Abstract

This chapter considers an Advocate’s experience of implementing the Advocacy program, and the different perceptions of the program by teachers and students and the conflicting demands on the Advocate. In order to explore the phenomenon of Advocacy and adolescent meaning making, I acted as an Advocate in a Melbourne Northern Metropolitan secondary school for a period of fourteen months.
