At notMYkid, we prepare kids to face everyday challenges with courage and confidence. Through our unique education models of peer-to-peer education, we address the life-changing issues of substance abuse, bullying, unhealthy relationships, eating disorders, depression/self injury, and internet safety. With prevention at the forefront of all programming—rather than intervention— our mission is to reach young people who fight internal battles about what is “right” and “wrong” and to provide them with the knowledge and resources that empower them to make positive choices in difficult situations.The challenges kids and families face today are complex and have the potential to devastate lives and derail futures. It is extremely important to work together to protect the kids in our community. The average age a kid will first try drugs is 13. Studies indicate that people who reach 21 without engaging in destructive behaviors are likely to never do so, which is why we passionately educate about current trends, warning signs, and the long-term impact of destructive behaviors. We believe proactive prevention on the part of kids, families, and communities is the answer to long-term success. Our Vision Every kid will have the knowledge and confidence to reach their full potential through making positive life choices.
