To equip today’s youth with the interpersonal skills to become a voice of inclusion in their schools and communities.
Kids’ Declining Mental Health Is the ‘Crisis of Our Time,’ says Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, and that "we all have a role to play in supporting youth mental health and creating a world where young people thrive."

We couldn't agree more, which is why we’re so passionate about what we're doing at Be THE Voice®!

Be THE Voice® is a student-led movement for kindness, compassion, and inclusion in K-12 schools. The initiative revolves around a weekly video series, shown school wide, that features diverse peer influencers sharing first-hand experiences on topics ranging from bullying to exclusion, anxiety, mental health, stereotyping, serving the community, and other student-centric issues. These videos inspire and encourage students “to do what is right, not what is easy” in everyday situations – equipping them with the interpersonal skills to be the voice of kindness and inclusion within their schools and communities.

In addition to weekly visual messaging, we provide a variety of fun networking activities designed to foster new friendships as students work together to meet monthly goals. The combination of both visual and hands-on messaging challenges reactive instincts that can lead to conflict, and instead promotes empathy and inclusion.

Other good news – According to BTV 2022-23 survey feedback, our initiative is benefitting the teaching staff too!  2022-23 post-program data reported a significant decrease in office referrals and out-of-school suspensions in both of  the Elementary and Middle-School programs. Be THE Voice helps to facilitate a space where students feel connected with their peers and are ready to learn, and where teachers can “teach” rather than manage student misbehavior.

That's a win-win situation if you ask us, so sign your school up today by reaching out to

Be THE Voice is a partner that we have used to build compassion and advocacy with our students. It’s student led and the schools and Principals in Fulton County who have opted into Be THE Voice have provided overwhelmingly positive feedback on this student led program.

Be THE Voice is more than a program. It’s a culture changer that can ignite a kinder, more compassionate and inclusive environment led by students. In my opinion, BTV should be in every school! We’ve tried everything else, why not bet on our kids to inspire change!
