our youth advisors

allcove is designed with, by and for young people.


The goal with our Youth Advisory Groups is to ensure that youth voice and experience are included in the development and services of all of our allcove centers. Our youth advisors are a group of young leaders who help us better understand young peoples’ needs, providing guidance, solutions and insight on how to support youth in the community.


Each group is comprised of young people between the ages of 16 and 25 who represent diversity across race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, lived experience, ability and socioeconomic status. They are passionate about affecting change and connecting with other youth to increase access to care.

Each group is unique to their community.

from our youth advisors

“I have seen first hand the deep impact that allcove centers have for their local communities, and how meaningful the work that allcove does for the youth truly is. 

I hope to contribute to something greater by making an influence on youth mental health for others across the entire state of California and sharing the vision of allcove with others in my community.
