This project will save us $10,298 , allowing us to create a foundation for a long, sustainable relationship with our parent donors and service recipients online!

What We Need

  • Up to 4 coaching sessions with a staff member
  • Actionable steps and advice to address an ongoing managerial issue
  • Assessment of the effectiveness of the Organization's leadership team

How This Will Help

While we have been in existence since 2006, we are embarking on a major facelift of our organization! Our founder started our initial blog as a teenager and has kept the non-profit mostly youth-led to date. As part of our transformation into Anxiety In Teens 2.0, our founder has recently moved to working at the non-profit full-time. We're seeking the coaching of an experienced mentor to help her focus on some specific, immediate goals.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a flexible, motivated, easy to work with leader which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a willingness to learn, expand, listen to new feedback 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!
