On the horizon...

We are preparing to go deeper with our services by shifting our drop-in center mentors to Peer Advocates. Youth Rising's Peer Advocates will be young adults with lived experience within youth systems (foster care, mental health, etc.). They will use their story to connect and relate with youth. Advocates will empower youth to navigate through and improve youth services, set and achieve life goals, and engage in therapeutic and educational opportunities. We will be hiring and training our new advocates during the summer with plans to provide peer support services by September 2018.
