IC3 Advocates

IC3 Advocates are individuals who believe that each young person should have direction and purpose in life. IC3 Advocates recognize and celebrate the intrinsic value in school-based counselors, teachers, and principals, and they support the mission of counseling in every school. They commit to individual action in the form of small acts of change that create a positive impact. They come from all walks of life — educators, parents, business leaders, artists, entrepreneurs, young professionals, and students, for instance.

IC3 Advocates make a difference in their immediate surroundings with a commitment to perform one act of change every two weeks, and 25 total acts of change in one year. They also share their stories of change to inspire others and multiply the impact of individual action.

These acts of change are generated from eight core impact categories:

  • Sustainable Development
  • Inclusion & Gender Equality
  • Health & Wellness
  • Volunteerism & Philanthropy
  • Leadership & Mentorship
  • Education & Career Guidance
  • Community Building
  • Kindness & Joy
