#wayforyouth is a grassroots community led program to foster social & emotional wellness, promote mental health, and prevent suicides. Schools are passionate about ensuring that all students succeed, but don’t have the support or funding needed make this a reality.
Our vision is to provide free social and emotional wellness training, support, and services to students, parent, teachers, and staff through a coalition of certified non-profit organizations and partners to pave the #wayforyouth to be happy, healthy, and hearty.
We work hand-in-hand with High Schools and Middle Schools to raise awareness through wellness training and events, empower students through peer groups, enable resilience through yogic tools & techniques, and provide counseling & screening services.
#wayforyouth is the 1st pilot supported by Deepak Chopra, Gabriella Wright, Michel Pascal & Poonacha Machaiah who have launched NeverAlone, a global movement for mental wellbeing and suicide prevention through their film “The Offering” and by supporting communities globally.
