“Words cannot describe what an AWESOME nonprofit this is. I first noticed an advertisement for their program on Facebook and decided to reach out. The customer service has been amazing with frequent communication and ease of transactions. They even CUSTOM made the bracelets to match our school, and adapted the goodie bags to meet the needs of all students in my school! I am the counselor for an elementary school in NC and it is the second largest school in the county (about 560 students).
They provided EVERY STUDENT IN THE SCHOOL with a bag including activity book, bracelet, crayons, bookmark and more. My students have been very excited to receive their bully free zone kit (as I have called them) and I could not be more grateful for the partnership with Im Young and Empowered. It is an honor to work alongside them to empower the young people in my school with the knowledge of kindness and resources to match!”

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on bullying prevention, mental health advocacy and suicide awareness. We operate with heart and soul as more of a cause to support ALL youth!
Our monthly campaigns have made their way into many elementary, middle and high schools throughout the United States.
Our organization is committed to supporting youth (elementary, middle to high school) by encouraging Kindness, Self Esteem, Respect and Unity. The goal is to impact the life of one student at a time - by using POSITIVE PEER PRESSURE - Using visual story telling and inspiring messages to prevent the trauma, suffering and negative impact that bullying creates.
Middle School - High School Students are provided empowering and thoughtful messages in the form of a "Mindfulness Magnet" for their lockers as well as a variety of empowering bookmarks, wristbands and other materials to choose from. Messages to encourage #YESYOUMATTER, #FeelingsMatter and #BeKind. A morning motivation video is available to play in each classroom.
Elementary school age children receive "theme based" goodie bags or wristbands - promoting kindness, inclusion and unity with our I Matter! You Matter! Stop Bullying! motto.
