Youth Programming

At Please Pass the Love, we believe in the power of the youth voice! That's why we created Stomp Out Stigma school groups. As a young person, you have the ability to make effective and lasting changes in your school. We work with you to help develop and build the leadership skills needed to create a school climate that is welcoming to everyone. Our goal is for every student to walk through their school doors feeling loved, safe, empowered, and supported. YOU are the key to making those changes. 

Are you a high school student interested in becoming a better leader? Check out our weekend-long, FREE summit where you'll explore communication, expression, and develop your leadership skills! (Did we mention it's FREE?)

The summit will cover topics like mental illness, coping skills, intersectionality, and how to work with administration and teachers so students can create sustainable change in their school's climate and mental health.

The Youth Advisory Board was created in 2019 with the hopes of getting more input from youth across our state. This was created to  offer insight, ideas, and collaborate with Please Pass the Love to determine the strategic direction of our youth programming.  Our board is compromised of amazing youth from

across our state. We know that they are

our future and they have a powerful

voice that needs to be heard! Meet our Youth Advisory Board members!

We are looking for teens to "takeover" our social media accounts for one week at a time throughout the school year. The goal is to raise mental health awareness for teens by teens. Your voice matters and we want you to use it in a powerful way!

 

Teens must be involved with PPTL youth programming (SOS groups or Youth Advisory Board) in order to apply. 

Social media platforms include:

  • Snapchat

  • Tik Tok

  • Instagram

As students head back to school this fall, they will need support now more than ever. We are offering FREE virtual workshops for students. Because these are virtual, they can be done anywhere in the world! Contact us to present to your students, sports team, or group today!

The workshops we offer are:

  • Self-Care

  • Youth Voice Matters

  • Mental Health Basics

  • Mental Health & The Athlete

We are launching a new and exciting new video series called Real Talk. These will be a live videos on Instagram and YouTube with youth leaders involved in our programming. The topics will all be centered around mental health, youth voice, self-care, and how you can help friends who are struggling. 

Join us as we share our stories, hear from experts in the field, and give a voice to those who don't always have one. A safe place for teens to talk, build relationships, and feel supported.

Este otoño, estamos ofreciendo una variedad de grupos para nuestros amigos de habla hispana. Estos incluyen un grupo de apoyo virtual y recursos de video.

 

Sabemos que la salud mental afecta a TODAS las poblaciones, por lo que queremos asegurarnos de que reciba la ayuda y el apoyo que necesita, incluso si el inglés no es su primer idioma.

This fall, we are offering a variety of groups for our Spanish speaking friends. These include a virtual support group and video resources.

We know that mental health affects ALL populations so we want to make sure you are getting the help and support you need, even if English isn't your first language.
