    Youth and Young Adult Advisory Group

    With our Center's increasing emphasis on young adults (18 to 24), we are seeking input to help guide our work and set priorities. We are particularly interested in hearing from representatives reflecting the diversity of this segment of the population. One way we will do this is to establish a volunteer advisory group.

    Are you interested? Should you agree to join us as advisors, you will become a subgroup of our current cadre of Advisors and will be added to the online listing. We will ask for ideas, suggestions, and reactions as we expand the information, resources and do policy and practice analyses related to young adults. Members of the Young Adult Advisors group can serve for any period of time.

    Advisors receive monthly Center updates and most interact with the Center by email. A subset of young adult advisors are those working at our Center. These staff advisors also contribute to special projects and help to develop resource materials that expand our online clearinghouse.*

    If you have questions about participating, let us know. Contact:
