Positive Youth Development- Social Media Messaging

Save to Favorites

CADRE~YELD (Youth Engagement & Leadership Development)

This project will involve using social media platforms to create and disseminate customized positive messages and vignettes. For this campaign, we are seeking social media, tech-savvy, and creative volunteers who have a strong desire and commitment to making a difference and having a meaningful impact on the lives and well-being of youth and young adults.

According to one source, substance use, depression, and anxiety in young people are on the rise, for example:

  • over half (56%) of young adults (ages 18-24) report feelings of anxiety and depression
  • one in four report substance use and suicidal thoughts
  • increases in private mental health claims for youth ages 13-18
  • CDC reveals a 31% increase in mental health-related emergency room visits for youth between 12 and 17; this is for March to October 2020, compared to the same period in 2019.

2007 Connor Ct, K, BOWIE, MD 20721, US

Mission Statement

To identify and advocate for Facilitators who make an impact and meaningful difference in the lives of youth, young adults & emerging leaders through positive messaging and strategic solutions; and, equip youth & young adults with character, confidence, resilience, leadership, and lifelong skills through the hands, hearts, and minds of Authentic, Committed and Transformative YELD Facilitators.

Description

Our organization offers an online facilitator certification in partnership with a national organization. YELD Facilitators include teachers, life coaches, career and workforce development professionals, youth ministry leaders, pastors, and non-profit leadership. Programmatically, facilitators work with a broad spectrum of young people, e.g., middle & high school students; college-bound and in-college, at-risk, school-to-work, formerly incarcerated, immigrants, refugees, and workforce entrants and emerging leaders. We have a character development program called Rising Stars Student Ambassadors, positive youth development, and leadership program; and, we use an evidence-based curriculum.

In 2018, the first annual event, the YELD CARES conference, was held in Spartanburg, SC. A YELD Facilitator and pastor hosted the conference. In 2019 a Youth Social Justice Roundtable was held in Maryland, and in 2020 we had a YELD Virtual Summit. The summit topics were Careers, Workforce Trends, and Future Technologies. Rising Star Student Ambassadors served as presenters. Over 80 students from multiple states and three African counties participated in the daylong event. We produce a monthly YELD Emerging Scholars (YES) Newsletter, and you can find our websites at www.yeldfacilitator.com and www.yeld.online.
