Hanna 4 Hope School Club

Teen Committee Meeting

The Teen Committee consists of boys and girls from ages 14 thru 19 years old.  These teens want to make a difference by bringing awareness to teenage suicide and provide resources to other teens throughout other schools.  They founded Hanna4Hope School Club, by being the ears, eyes, and voice in representing the foundation.  They strive each and every day to bring awareness and education to the forefront of today's youth.

Hanna4Hope School Club Mission is to bring awareness about the prevention of teenage suicide to faculty, teachers, and peers, by providing an open dialogue environment with educational information and encouragement, while maintaining personal integrity through the proper chain of command.  

One of our teen members quoted, "Teen Suicide has shown me how delicate everyone's life is including mine.  You never know what people are going through and what they'll do because of it.  It has taught me not to make a permanent decision because everything is temporary.  I see things more clearly now and I'm more aware of the people around me because you never know what just a simple action can do to them or for them."  

The teen committee created the slogan, "You Matter…You're Never Alone".  These words hold dear to their heart in the difference they try to make every day.
