The Young Friends is a network of professionals dedicated to building awareness of the Center and supporting its mission.
Through community involvement, social events, and public education, the Young Friends work to support the Center’s mission while uniting talented, charitable and hard-working young professionals in St. Louis.
The Young Friends:
- Range in age between 21 and 35
- Have a strong interest in the Center’s mission
- Are committed to raise awareness for communication disorders
The Young Friends host an annual trivia night to raise awareness and funding to support the Center.
