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

Our vision is to encourage and serve young people to create, develop and establish Youth Recovery Community Organizations (YRCO) to make recovery resources available to their peers who are unaware or who may be seeking recovery. Youth Voices Matter-NY believes that every young person has the right to recover and deserves to have the resources and assistance within their communities to do so. Through the establishment of YRCOs, youth and young adults across New York State will be given the foundation needed to be able to advocate and educate others while growing in their own recovery process.
