About the Legacy Finance & Administration team
The small but mighty Finance & Administration team is in charge of three main functions: 1) finance and accounting (from budgeting and ensuring financial sustainability to processing accounts payable); 2) internal technology (monitoring systems and deploying hardware); 3) operations (supporting and managing our nationwide offices). Aren’t we the FTO team? I don’t believe the name of our team changed to Finance & Administration.
About Peer Health Exchange
Peer Health Exchange (PHE) is a national nonprofit organization that builds healthier communities with young people. We operate through two business units, Youth Health Equity Collaboration & Youth Innovation Lab. Together, we create education opportunities for peers to share the tools and resources young people need to make healthy decisions.
About Youth Health Equity Collaboration
We show up for and center thousands of young people, across the nation, in their schools and communities. We partner with high schools and community organizations that share our belief that health education is fundamental to a young person’s success. We are committed to advancing health equity and working in under-resourced communities where the majority of students are living in poverty.
Young people are at the core of what we do and how we do it. From our near-peer model in the classroom where our fellows and high schoolers teach health education in schools across the country, to our presence on social media—the youth choose, which means we’re inclusive, identity affirming, and youth-centered.
