The FACES for the Future Youth Advisory Council is comprised of students and alumni who represent different FACES programs. The purpose of the Council is to create a platform for young people to express their perspectives and experiences and advocate on behalf of youth. Through their input, FACES for the Future can continue to provide relevant and engaging programming. Youth voice is integral to our work, and we are thankful for our amazing council members.
