This project will save us $8,773 , allowing us to create a foundation for a long, sustainable relationship with our readers, staff, volunteers, donors and more!

What We Need

  • Review of existing mission, vision and/or values
  • Analysis of the existing programs and any future plans
  • Strategic consultation surrounding the existing functions and the core need the Organization seeks to address
  • Freshly written mission, vision & values statements

How This Will Help

While we have been in existence since 2006, we are embarking on a major facelift in both programming and branding of our online mental health resource for teens and families, and our virtual expressive writing program for young adults.

For our online resource, we serve two audiences: everyone who reads our blog (teens, parents) and the writers who create the content (young adults with lived experience; parents). We need some guidance renewing our mission, vision and values.

What We Have In Place

We currently have an early idea of the direction we'd like to move towards which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have been in existence since 2006 and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

We've been Millennial-run since our inception, and we've hosted nearly 300 virtual internships nationwide!

Our Executive Director also loves baking chocolate chip peanut butter cookies.

We're launching new services for parents and excited to engage them more!
