Project Samuel’s advocate program is comprised of individuals who have been trained by the Executive Staff and speak on our behalf to raise awareness and funds to help us bring hope to at-risk children around the world. Conference calls are held to keep them in the loop so they can be a hub of information for their geographic region. The Project Samuel staff can only be in so many places at once, thus amplifying our voice by participating in speaking events and using their sphere of influence. We will be once voice, in many places.
