Share Your Story


Join our #TheFutureIsYouth campaign where we look to capture 1 MILLION STORIES!

This unique campaign is encouraging everyone to share with the world what their hopes are for the best possible future.

The partnering organizations hope to use this hashtag campaign to assist in breaking the silence around bullying, suicide, self-harm, drugs, and alcohol.

In order to participate, an individual just has to share what they hope for the future by using the hashtag #TheFutureIsYouth on social media; encouraging others to do the same.
