- Incentivize youth organization/groups to undertake advocacy activities;
- Motivate young people to be advocates of housing issues, leveraging their HYLB participation to strengthen Habitat for Humanity’s advocacy activities;
- Encourage young people to raise public awareness on housing issues they face and offer possible solutions how to address the challenges through change of system, policies or procedure;
