Terri Rundell is starting a movement to bolster teens in establishing their identities, confidence, and resiliency. This starts by teaching them how to disrupt the negativity on social media—redirecting their energy to positivity to tools that will help them know and value who they are. Her movement targets teens directly as well as their parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and church leaders to help support them through their programs. She’s worked for a Fortune 100 company (spoiler, we used to work together) and her passion and energy models that of a child while holding onto the business mind of a CEO. Her goal is to reduce teen depression, anxiety, suicide and substance abuse—getting them to rise up as a generation that knows how to support one another.
This movement will be targeting teens where they live—on their phones. It allows for them to engage with programs without any judgment from their peers from the onset, and gives them the space to open up and be vulnerable. The hope is that this will establish a connection before they tune out and fall into a rut of disconnection and negativity.
If you feel the power and change this can bring to the upcoming generation of youth—Terri wants you to reach out to her directly to see how you can help. Human connection is the best way to instigate change, after all.
