Meet the RecoveryBuild Team
One of our core values is to include youth in the design of our work. We hope to amplify their voices, understand what resonates (or doesn’t) with youth and solicit feedback in general. Our Student Advisor volunteers have agreed to provide feedback to make sure our programs work with their peers. We welcome their insights and energy!
