Kansas City, Missouri- Finding Hope

Last month we had the honor to host a workshop at Youth 2019, a convention with thousands of other young people!

Our workshop (titled Finding Hope) was an informal discussion on mental health challenges and ways to battle stigma. We began by sharing the story and origin of 13 Reasons to Fly, and then invited people to brainstorm & share their reasons to fly.

We were blown away by the openness, bravery, and strength of the young people that attended. Recounting on this experience gives us inspiration to propel forward and continue doing this much needed work! So incredibly grateful for all the people we had the opportunity to meet.

Keep spreading your wings.

Pegasus House, Daybreak Shelter

Had an amazing time working with the young women at Pegasus House in Lawrence! We had a lot of fun developing Reasons to Fly on kites!

We also discussed the pressure of stigma , and took great pride in working to make their labels ‘disappear’.Thank you to Robin, the staff and all the strong young people from Pegasus House!

Weekly Wednesday’s

Hi All! I know it’s been a while, but don’t worry, our work hasn’t stopped! Behind the scenes, has been traveling to Cohannet Academy: a JRI youth residential program in Taunton State Hospital. Today we had our 3rd Group and the youth did an activity highlighting values and why they matter to us!

If you’re interested in hearing more about what we do, or if you’d like to bring a chapter to your school/program/place of worship feel free to Contact Us at 13reasonstofly@gmail.com
