Welcome FACES Youth Advisory Council Members!
FACES for the Future Coalition is PROUD to announce our first cohort of council members. As you may already know, FACES for the Future is 20 in 2020! To celebrate this important milestone, we established a FACES Youth Advisory Council. We had an overwhelming number of applicants, and after careful deliberation, FACES for the Future Coalition welcomed 10 council members representing alumni and current students from various FACES program locations. Each Council member brings a unique set of skills, leadership experiences, and passion to contribute to their communities.
The purpose of the FACES Youth Advisory Council is to create a platform for young people to express their perspectives and experiences and advocate on behalf of youth. Youth voice is an integral aspect to FACES for the Future Coalition’s work – and hearing from young people helps us to provide relevant, innovative programming that matters to our students.
