YI’s Young Advocates program is a paid leadership program where young people work with our teams to strengthen the voices of young people in their community. In Colorado, the Young Advocates work on health care issues and how they impact young adults.
Some of the advocates focused on campus mental health and the need for more resources for young adults. Due to the generous support of the Community First Foundation, YI will be able to do even more work on mental health with the Young Advocates in Colorado.
