Broward County Student Representative Campaign

Your Donation Matters!

This campaign for Broward County, Florida will help to identify, recruit, train and equip one or more Be Strong student representatives in every county middle school and high school to seek out and support students in crisis. The teens are trained and equipped with the Be Strong App providing 24/7 crisis counselors, suicide lifeline, learning resources and local support including food, housing, escaping violence, counseling and more. These students are often the bridge for helping peers in crisis get help.

To help fund our campaign, Be Strong is seeking $155,000+ in donations. The resources will be used to develop, train and provide ongoing support for student leaders who can act as resources for their peers who may be struggling with bullying, hopelessness, anxiety, thoughts of suicide or other critical mental health issues.

Students today face unprecedented mental health struggles. From bullying to depression and anxiety, one in five students struggles with mental health. Furthermore, 11% of students in Broward County, FL, have attempted suicide one or more times in the last 12 months, compared to the national average of 9%. Our goal is to reverse this devastating trend.

Young people in crisis need a friend who knows how to get help. Our Be Strong student leaders are the bridge for helping their peers in crisis get to help. That’s why Be Strong is dedicated to promoting mental health and resilience through peer-to-peer support and programming.

Championed by community and made possible by donors like you (Thank YOU), this program ensures ongoing support is available to students, by students.

Worthless or Worth More?

As the years passed, getting bullied resulted in me becoming a bully. As a bully I was always ostracized from clubs, gatherings, and school assemblies which was like adding gas to fire.
