We cultivate masterful coaches.

 Our mission is to cultivate purpose in ourselves and others through possibility, education, equity and inclusivity.

We believe that all work starts with YOU. Hence HardBeauty YOUniversity. This is the creation of CEO Racquel Garcia and Coaching Director Tiffany Kuhwede. Peer recovery coaches walk side by side with individuals seeking recovery from substance use disorders. They help people to create their own recovery plans and develop their own recovery pathways. Through empathy and empowerment, the coach builds a unique relationship with an individual in or seeking recovery that is grounded in trust, and focused on providing the individual with tools, resources, and support to achieve their short, and long-term drug use and wellness goals. 

Peer recovery coaches work in a range of settings, including recovery community centers, drug courts, treatment centers, religious communities and more. and primary care settings. In addition to providing the range of support encompassed in the peer recovery coach role, they take an active role in outreach and engagement within these settings to educate communities around SUD to improve outcomes.

We are proud to be a Choices Peer Recovery Authorized Training provider. We have programming in both English and Spanish.


Upcoming courses.

HB YOUniversity Winter 2022 Cohort

YOU are worth the investment of your time and energy to explore what's possible for you. This 30-hour course will be full of learning, connection and practical application towards becoming a recovery coach. We proudly use and partner with Choices Addiction and Recovery Education for training materials. Our winter 2022 cohort will take place in the evenings to accommodate those who work or have other obligations during the day.  

****We DO have scholarships available for 1/2 tuition. We are able to offer a limited number of HBYou Scholarships for our next Peer Coaching Cohort that begins in December. These scholarships are on a first come, first serve basis. Priority will be given to those who are 300% of the poverty level.  The scholarships are for half of the total cost which is $149.50. That makes the remaining $149.50 your responsibility and it must be paid in full prior to class starting. HBYOUniversity scholarships are currently available to Colorado Residents only, and are available as long as funds are available. Application does not guarantee a scholarship. You will be notified by email. *No Refunds*
