YVM Mission, Vision, and History

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower and inspire youth and young adult communities across NYS to create, develop, and collaboratively establish Youth Recovery Community Organizations while supporting and contributing to the growth of each individual’s recovery process.

Our Vision

Through the establishment of YRCOs, youth and young adults across NYS will be provided the foundation needed to be able to use their voice to advocate and educate others while growing in their own recovery process. Youth Voices Matter- NY believes that every young person has the right to recover and deserves to have the community resources and deserves to have immediate access to community resources..
