Thursday, August 24, 2017 - 11:04am
On Sunday, August 20, 2017, Letty Elenes, Program Director of Doors to Wellbeing, was presented with the Youth and Young Adults Peer Leadership Award. At Alternatives 2017, Letty organized a diverse group of young people to speak about their experiences, growth and future of our peer movement.
Letty says, "I will continue inspiring young adults to achieve their dreams and goals in life. Our past does not dictate our future. Our “mistakes” are learning opportunities. I am privileged with incredible mentors but it is MY CHOICE to make a change for the better, I will forever be grateful and stay humble."
About the award: "Alternatives wishes to stand tall with our emerging leaders and honor a youth or young adult who is excelling in providing leadership to engage more youth and young adults and who is working on changing the system to be person centered and recovery, health, and wellness focused."
Congratulations! We are so proud of Letty and her work! #Alternatives2017
