Counselors

The What Really Matters Foundation has a team of counselors and consultants who altruistically collaborate with our institution sharing their experience and know-how.

The Consulting Council is divided in four groups:

  • Firstly a YOUTH COUNCIL, as their opinions and evaluation are fundamental to us, since they are the main beneficiaries of our activities.
  • The INNOVATION COUNCIL studies pioneering action lines to help us develop tools that will allow us to be up-to-date with the new technologies.
  • There are people who, in a private manner, have helped the Foundation from the beginning, fostering its expansion to other cities and nations. They compose the EXPANSION COUNCIL.
  • Moreover, we have the support of a series of companies and entrepreneurs with whom we share the same values, and who wish to commit by sharing their support and involvement and forming the COUNSELLING ASSOCIATES group.
