A Marathon for Lives and Futures

We’re living in uncertain times. A seemingly never-ending global health crisis and countless natural disasters have devastated communities in Mississippi. Our young people are scared. And their education and mental health hang in the balance.

When teens are scared, they’re more likely to make risky decisions. We see this in the increase in STIs and teen pregnancy rates. They’re in a marathon for their lives and futures.

And we’ve joined them in the race to create change in the lives of Mississippi’s young people. Take a moment with us to imagine a Mississippi where all of our young people have access to the essential knowledge, skills, resources, and support they need to grow into healthy adults and move communities forward. Now — let’s get in the race to make it happen together!
