25th anniversary—WE Well-Being

WE invites you to invest in the lifelong future of youth and empower their well-being.

WE Charity is proud to be celebrating 25 years of impact at home and around the world. We have taken an extraordinary journey to get where we are today. What started in 1995 as a humble group of twelve 12-year- olds now is a movement that engages 18,000 schools and groups around the world. We believe the best way to celebrate a quarter-century of doing good is by responding to the number one issue young people were seeking help with: their mental well-being. By age 25, approximately 25 percent of Canadians will have experienced a mental health issue. We are making strategic investments to support the well- being of young people, families and communities for generations to come.

That is why we are partnering with leading experts in the field of mental health and social emotional learning to translate science into actions and practices that help nurture lifelong positive well-being of young people and their families. Partnering with our network of tens of thousands of passionate educators, we will develop and deliver mental well-being curriculum and programming for K-12 classrooms across North America and the UK. Our objective is to help youth thrive through focusing on mental health promotion and prevention , by teaching evidence-based tangible practices that help nurture lifelong positive well-being. Through our established and proven engagement platforms and infrastructure, we will equip students, educators and families

with the tools to support their own mental well-being and the well-being of their communities The program will foster social, emotional, physical and mental well-being inside and outside of the classroom. Moreover, the program will empower participants to build safe and caring environments, while reducing stigma and other mental health risk factors. When you invest in WE Well-being, you are investing in building stronger, healthier and more caring communities.
