We know nothing happens in a vacuum and the stuggles that teens face which lead to bullying and suicide are complex. This is why we have several programs that attack the issues from multiple angles. Our three main focuses are:
Providing education to teens and parents.
Offering opportunities for teens to hear stories of other teens who have stuggled and overcame thier challenges.
Organizing community outreach programs so that teens can get involved in the community, help those who are less fortunate, and be part of something bigger than themselves.
