Nearly 9 years ago, our team began the work inspiring young people and collaborating with them to build a kinder, braver world. We strive every day to achieve our goals; to make kindness cool, validate the emotions of young people everywhere, and eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health.
Today, we are so excited to invite you to read our impact report.
In this report, you’ll see how busy we’ve been these last few years expanding our programming, our team, our research, and our reach to meet young people where they are with life-saving resources. Some of the highlights include expanding our youth mental health tools and training, exponentially growing our programs cultivating kindness, developing new partnerships, introducing new research, and releasing a best-selling book.
One thing remains true: this impact would not be possible without the young people who lead and shape our work. History shows us they are always and have always been at the forefront of every major movement to change the world for the better, and their response to this challenging time is no different. They continue to inspire us at Born This Way Foundation and power us forward into the kinder, braver world that will be their legacy. Informed by our research and their perspectives, we will continue to bridge more gaps with innovative programming.
We’re touched and overwhelmed to look back on the lives impacted by our work as a Born This Way Foundation community, and look forward to expanding and building our programs even more as they’re needed now more than ever.
