What Teens are saying about SELFY...
“THIS WAS AN AMAZING PROGRAM !! i loved it so much and this was the highlight of my week!”
“SELFY has been the light at the end of the tunnel that I had been searching for my whole life. It was the pathway in which I was able to explore my likes, my dislikes as well as my strengths and my weaknesses. It has given me the insight I need to improve on myself as a person.”
“I learned how to set boundaries and make sure to take time for myself”
"SELFY Teen Edition came at such a vital time for our teens because of the pandemic. Our youth shared that because they were not in school they felt disconnected from people. Social media didn't feel like enough to keep true connections. They shared throughout that they felt less alone because of SELFY ."

SELFY is a social and emotional support program that focuses on health and wellness, mindfulness, and education through dialogue, open communication, and team building activities. Through utilization of CASEL's 5 Core Competencies in Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) - social awareness, self-awareness, responsible decision-making, self-management, & relationship skills - SELFY aims to promote health and wellbeing in young people by creating greater self and community awareness. With support from program facilitators, teens engage in activities that promote discussion, role-playing, and critical thinking to develop resilience, enhance communication skills, improve decision making, and cultivate greater connection to their own thoughts and feelings as well as others.
