As a single mother who lost a child to suicide, I decided to start an organization that would support and encourage young people to be active in their communities. Research done by Dartmouth concluded that young people who are involved in community are less likely to suffer from learning disabilities, ADHD and depression. Depression was the cause of my son’s death. Let’s work together to guide young people to be the best they can be, to make the most of their talents and opportunities, teach them to deal with challenges, obstacles, and conflict and know they have a community to turn to on their darkest day that will get them through.
I am thankful to have connected with such a talented board and we are blessed by the support of this community.
