The threats our children face are more complex than ever. Between 7th and 12th grade, according to the Iowa Youth Survey, we see a dramatic negative shift in Iowa youths’ attitude toward drug use, access to dangerous substances, and engagement in high-risk behaviors. Our research shows the problem is concurrent with and correlates to increased media use and a lack of critical thinking skills necessary to manage a largely unregulated and often predatory social media landscape.
We have always provided our products and services to Iowa schools (public and faith-based), service organizations, and caring families at no charge. The monies we raise are fully invested in the development and delivery of our programs. We operate with a virtual office network, with shared resources from supporting businesses and government entities. Our network of in-kind supporters extends throughout Iowa.
To make all of this work at a level of capacity that will reach virtually 100% of Iowa youth, educators and caregivers we NEED your support! Find out more about our current supporters below and partner with us today.
