Standing Strong is leading the way in improving community approaches to teen health and wellness programs. We are encouraging communities to understand the complexity, uniqueness and fluidity of teen awareness and to embrace this in program development and delivery. We aim to build awareness that in order to engage and empower young people, to support and teach them, we must first truly connect with them.
With teens it’s not black or white, it’s a rainbow and the rainbow is different from day to day, moment to moment. Our vision and goal is to embrace the inconsistencies, the complexities, the emotions and the challenges of the teen world and to see these as extraordinary learning experiences for everyone. To help our future generations step into their adult lives with the knowledge, strength and courage many previous generations never had the joy of discovering.
Our vision has been strengthen by the support and encouragement we have received from the media, we are forever grateful.
