Self-advocacy is the ability to speak up for yourself or on the behalf of someone else or for a cause. It is also the ability to know your rights and responsibilities and to reach out to others when you need help or support. When you self-advocate you have the ability to be assertive as well as negotiate for one’s self, others, or for a cause.

Learning life skills during community outings can help teach students in a natural environment how to live, work and enjoy recreational activities as independently as possible.
