I love this nonprofit so much!! Honestly we need more organizations like this one. I firmly believe that if we instill love and kindness at an early age it will eliminate some hate and bullying. We need to be there for the kids and that's what this nonprofit is all about and I'm glad to be apart of it. This non profit is there for bullies kids and makes it known that we are there to help and to make it known that those kids are not alone. This is what we need more of. We need to help these children know that love and care is there. I'm so glad to have found this organization and even more glad to raise my son with being apart of it. Ps. Miss Elise is so loving and kind.

El trabajo de esta organización me ha impactado desde que los encontramos. No solo me mandaron info para mi familia sino nos enviaron materiakes que pudimos compartir con la escuela de mi hijo y que hoy forma parte de su salón de clases. El bullying es un tema serio y, nos toque o no directamente, es algo para lo que tenemos que trabajar juntos y eliminar de nuestros entornos. mi respeto absoluto por Elise y el trabajo que realizan. Imyoungandempowered thank you. So much!!!

I have personally been involved in fundraising and non profits for more than 50 years. This organization is well run, assists in many ways and it's a pleasure to be a volunteer with. I'm pleased to recommend this group for any grants. Thank you Elise Carey and volunteers for welcoming me to assist.

Words cannot describe what an AWESOME nonprofit this is. I first noticed an advertisement for their program on Facebook and decided to reach out. The customer service has been amazing with frequent communication and ease of transactions. They even CUSTOM made the bracelets to match our school, and adapted the goodie bags to meet the needs of all students in my school! I am the counselor for an elementary school in NC and it is the second largest school in the county (about 560 students). They provided EVERY STUDENT IN THE SCHOOL with a bag including activity book, bracelet, crayons, bookmark and more. My students have been very excited to receive their bully free zone kit (as I have called them) and I could not be more grateful for the partnership with Im Young and Empowered. It is an honor to work alongside them to empower the young people in my school with the knowledge of kindness and resources to match!

I was fortunate to have found this organization. Elise Carey is God sent. I strongly believe in giving back and being a part of our community and taking a stand against bullies is something I've always felt strongly about. My oldest son was an active volunteer participating in public speaking about anti bullying. Now because of the I Matter! You Matter! Movement my youngest son is also an active participant. After our most recent event my son said to me, "mom, the best part of all this is seeing other kids smiling when they leave". Thank you Elise. Thank you for welcoming us and introducing us to I'm young and empowered. Together, we're changing lives.

Elise the founder is beyond amazing. This is what the community needs more of. Her back to school event was one of the best I have been to. Please support and spread the word this should be everywhere in our schools, and community centers.

Elise Carey, the founder of I'm Young And Empowered Inc. has a heart of gold! Her mission to spread the word that everyone's voice (young & older) matters is contagious. She is extremely passionate about her non-profit, I'm Young And Empowered. The events that I'm Young And Empowered puts on are fun and informative. I feel very fortunate to have witnessed this baby non-profit be born and growing into something completely amazing and wonderful. I support Elise in her mission and pray that one day the term "bully" will be a thing of the past. "You Matter, I Matter, Stop Bullying!" - Amen!
