JUST FOR TEENS
The guiding principle of the Ryan Bartel Foundation is to listen to the needs and ideas of our teens to effectively respond by providing them with programs, activities, and support systems that help meet those needs.
The purpose of the Student Advisory Board is to ensure that the teen voice is heard, solutions discussed, and ideas channeled into action. Teen representatives from schools and community groups are invited to apply to participate in the Student Advisory Board to become the voice of their peers and help improve the mental health of their community.
Creative Writing: Attention teens! Make an impact on your community by sharing your written thoughts and experiences on feeling different or not accepted and what may have helped you. Essays, short stories, poetry – however you’d like to express yourself is a welcome addition to the Teen Voices blog.
