Hello

As a previous Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) and previous member of several Youth Councils in Escondido and San Diego, I am excited to start a Youth Council here in Escondido. I have completed many service learning projects as a youth advocate and now as a local small business owner of two years and community organizer in Escondido, my goal is to bridge the gap between opportunities and youth and Create Opportunities Over Lifetimes (COOL). Many organizations are in need of volunteers and many youth are in need of volunteer hours so our hope is the Youth Council will serve as a connector to these opportunities. Youth are also our future leaders and the Youth Voice is needed in many of our local community initiatives.
