​​The goal of the #YESYOUMATTER I Matter! You Matter! Stop Bullying!™ movement is to inspire and impact

one young person at a time. One less student who drops out of school, one less young person who cries in the locker room, one less young person who does self harm, one less young person who runs away from home...the list goes on and on.


From the #YESYOUMATTER platform I work to encourage this inspiration and positivity by engaging youth in dialogue-based workshops, interactive presentations and workshops, and pay-it-forward community service activities.


Also by providing a variety of inspiring clothing, materials and awards that highlight, recognize and celebrate their individuality and unique contributions all at no cost to individual families, schools and youth advocates.

In just the first year (2019) of existence these engagements ranged from mailings to like-minded educators and parents spanning all demographics and persuasions in 35 states, assemblies for nearly 2000 middle school students in North Las Vegas, and a half-dozen special school-year and holiday- oriented community events.
