IC3 Advocates

IC3 Advocates are individuals who believe that every young person should have direction and purpose in life. IC3 Advocates recognize and celebrate the intrinsic value of 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 or large acts of change that create a positive impact. They come from the global community of educators — universities, schools, and some approved organizations.

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 acts of change to inspire others and multiply the impact of individual action.

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