Guiding youth to lead healthy and safe lives.

Drive for 25

KIDS ASK HARD QUESTIONS.

$25 a month gives them straight answers.

How will I know if I’ve started puberty? What if the womb isn’t big enough for the baby? Can HIV hurt a baby if they get it? How do you break up with someone? How do you get tested for STDs? How do you help a family member or friend get out of an abusive relationship? What if a partner threatens to hurt themselves if you try to break up with them? What can I do when someone is bullying my friend? How does alcohol effect decisions I make?

These are just a few examples of the many questions Hoosier kids ask our health educators in the classroom. Kids are curious about their bodies, their relationships, and their place in the world. They want to know how they can be better friends to each other and what they can do to make sure they and the people they love have healthy, happy futures.

If they don’t get answers to these questions from us, where do they get them? What sorts of answers will they make up for themselves? Rumors and misinformation about topics like these spread like wildfire, and it can take years to set the record straight. LifeSmart Youth provides Indiana kids with age-appropriate, medically-accurate information that helps them make healthy, safe decisions for now and years to come.

We work with our school and summer camp partners to tackle these questions and more, providing Indiana youth with the skills and resources they need to thrive—but we need your help to continue. This school year, we anticipate that LifeSmart Youth will empower more than 15,000 youth with over 46,000 hours of programming. A donation of $25 or more per month helps give Indiana kids access to this life-changing knowledge.

We need your support to educate kids and inspire them to make healthy, safe choices. Together we can teach our youth to be life smart. Please consider supporting Indiana’s kids with a monthly gift today.
