🔎 What we see online is only #HalfTheStory
🌟 OUR PURPOSE
We believe knowledge is power. Serving schools, non-profits, and corporations, we create programs like Social Media U, which helps teens to take back control of their tech use.
From lobby efforts to our Global Day of Unplugging to student clubs across the country, we give the next gen the tools to turn their interest into action.
We create screen-free social events for teens to connect offline and strengthen IRL relationships.
