We want Barrie (and beyond!) to be a different place! It is hard enough to be a teenager, and deal with the changes and stresses that exist; the last thing we need is to be beating up each other and ourselves. So- how does it work? Well, we are going to help each other out! Anytime you hear someone speaking/social-media-ing negative about themselves, you are going to ENCOURAGE THEM- tell them how awesome they are, and build them up! Then, when you get a moment, gently tell them WE DONT DO THAT HERE! On an individual level, we are going to take 21 days and commit to changing how we speak/social-media about ourselves, and our futures. Building up others and building up ourselves!
