I am a counselor at an extremely diverse, suburban, Los Angeles high school. The experiences I had with the CCODE philosophy and the training from the CCODE staff provided me a framework to negotiate the complexities of working with young people and their families from a vast range of backgrounds and socio-economic statuses. I’ve been able to use what I learned about myself and the experiences of others to better advocate for all students as they navigate their journey to adulthood particularly to address issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, and national origin.
