In May of 2015, Rockflower created the Youth Advisory Board to give young people an opportunity to use their creativity and drive to improve the lives of women and girls around the world.
We brought together an incredible group of capable and extremely caring young individuals who are determined to bring their skills and energy to advance the cause of Rockflower.
So far in 2016, we have added three new members, who each bring a unique and inspiring set of experiences and skills to Rockflower.
