How It Works

Be Strong’s Student State Reps are young change agents from grades 4+ in small towns and big cities across the country. They are nominated by teachers, counselors, administrators, and other members of their school faculty to serve at the frontline of kindness and inclusion, impacting their schools & communities in big ways.

We Dine Together

Reps are also the founders of their schools’ We Dine Together initiative, fostering a more inclusive environment, making sure no one has to eat alone.

WHAT IS BE STRONG?

Be Strong is a non-profit empowering youth to prevent bullying, social isolation and suicide by igniting change in peer behavior through a comprehensive student-led approach to:

  • - Encourage ALL students to reveal challenges they are facing
  • - Train and equip students to become more resilient
  • - Arm them with the Be Strong App to access real time and local resources that can help
  • - And unite them to change their families, schools, communities, states, and country

Empowering Kids Through We Dine Together

One of the ways we empower students is by having them pioneer positive, peer-led programs in their schools. We do this through the Be Strong Student State Representative Program.

Every month we engage with our reps via acts of kindness, advocacy, awareness, resilience training, and inclusion. Our student reps serve as the founders & leaders of their school’s We Dine Together initiative - creating more inclusive social atmospheres on campus. Students on every middle and high school campus eat lunch in empty classrooms, remote corners and bathroom stalls because they don’t feel connection with their peers, but our reps work to eliminate social isolation & make sure no student feels they have to eat alone.
