Every summer, the FACES Coalition recruits and hires highly motivated college students to serve as our FSMA Student Advisors. Student Advisors assist FSMA staff with the planning, coordination and implementation of the FSMA program activities, including the teaching and facilitation of program workshops. Moreover, Student Advisors serve as mentors to the high school student participants. The FACES Coalition is proud to introduce our 2017 FSMA Student Advisors!
