A busy few weeks doing what we love here at i am me... collaborating with like minded individuals who share our passion for supporting the future of young people, finding new ways to help them to become active and engaged in their own future.
We hope to share more details soon, but if you're interested in hearing more about the work we're doing to support young people, drop us a message: email@example.com
COMMITTEE MEMBERS SHAPE I AM ME APP
The i am me app has had a bit of a makeover and we’re so excited that the updates are now live!
Young people really are at the heart of everything we do, and we’re determined to keep the i am me initiative young person led. That’s why we asked our committee members for their feedback and ideas.
From creating a new homepage and a space for your messages, to adding a wall of inspiration, they told us what they wanted to see on the app, and we’ve made those changes. A big thank you to every young person that gave us feedback and continue to shape the initiative for all young people now and in the future.
We’d love to hear your thoughts too, so check out the app now by downloading it on the App Store / Google Play for free! Just search ‘i am me’.
The app is being used by many schools, colleges, universities and organisations to support the wellbeing of its young people and young talent. This free resource is needed more than ever at the moment.
So it you’d like to find out more, work with us, set up a committee, or support us so we can continue our work in educating, enabling and empowering young people to take a proactive approach to mental health, then we’d love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org.
