The PALS program offered each summer has been a blessing to my daughter who has attended both in 2014 & 2015. She has learning disabilities and therefore has struggled to keep pace with "normal" students. I believe this made her more reluctant and quiet, not very eager to ask questions or speak out. After getting involved in PALS, she was transformed into a very assertive and outspoken woman. She became an advocate not only for herself but for others. She learned the value of speaking up, getting involved and leading. It has taken her now to FSU where she joined the LLC for Social Justice & Leadership. She volunteered over 550 hours in high school and now continues to volunteer in college. She has also been selected as 1 of 50 women to attend a Women in Leadership Summit at FSU. Now she plans to travel to DC this month to represent NVEEE & PALS students for anti-bullying with her peers. A very powerful and iI impactful organization.
NVEEE has had such a huge impact on me from the moment I started. It has strengthened me as a leader, encouraged me to deeply understand the concepts of bullying and, how to prevent it . This organization gives me the chance to actually go out and make a positive difference in the world. I'm so grateful to have found and to be involved with NVEEE!❤️
Even though I've only known NVEEE for a few months, the organization gave a sharp turn to my life. I have known people who have really needed help for a long time, and I've always liked to help, and NVEEE has provided me tools to help those who are being bullied or are still affected by bullying despite not being object of bullying anymore. I also met amazing people whom I can count on whenever I need help. Through the people and the life lessons, NVEEE is definitely a life changing experience.
Getting to be a part of NVEEE has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Every part of the NVEEE team carries such an inspiration with them and they have had such a positive impact on everyone that has ever came across the program and it shows in every smile they have created along the way! They create such an accepting and open environment for everybody and if you walk away from the program with anything- it's that no one is ever alone and there are so many people that are there for you through everything you may go through. NVEEE is a 100% bully free zone and, once again, they have had such an impact on my life and is easily one of the most amazing experiences and organizations anyone can ever be a part of.
This is my 3rd year knowing about NVEEE and I can truly say that each passing year NVEEE makes my life even better than it already was. Everyone that is a part of NVEEE helped me move on from my past, and also helped with some of my other personal issues. This is an amazing organization that deserves way more credit than what it is given.
I've been going to NVEEE's summer summit for 2 years now and can honestly tell you it had changed my life. Literally within 3 days, you and all the other students will feel as if you are family and you feel as if you can trust them with anything. You leave the summit feeling like a new and improved you, you learn things about others and about yourself! I have never been so moved and passionate about a non-profit organization till I started with NVEEE. Would recommend to all teens, and to all families who want to be more involved/ open minded with today's society.
I started with NVEEE about four years ago and it completely changed my life. It helped me over come bullying and prevent it even though I live so far away. I don't know what I would do with out the family it has become and it has certainly helped me reach and fulfill my passion of helping others. It creates a chain reaction. I've always wanted to help others, and NVEEE has taught me how to do that and help my self no matter how far away or what kind of person. I am apart of almost every program NVEEE has to offer and I wouldn't change it for the world.
NVEEE allows students to have their voices by heard and become who they want to be in the world. Being an intern with Jowharah was a once in a lifetime experience that I'll never forget.
I started my internship with NVEEE about two months ago and I can honestly say that I've done and learned so much in such a short amount of time while also being impacted by the organization's mission. NVEEE is constantly hard at work making sure that they're doing everything in their power to support kids and teens that may be dealing with bulling or suicidal thoughts by offering a safe space. As the days go on I learn more about the kids that are involved with NVEEE and its so moving and humbling to see how strong and inspiring they are at such a young age. I love that I've had the opportunity to be a part of an organization that always puts their cause at the forefront of all their decision making and I can't wait to see what else is in store.
I am currently an Public Relation intern with this organization, and it's been a great experience. We spend a lot of time developing ideas and platforms in which individuals would feel interested or moved to help those being bullied or considering suicide. As an intern, you get to hear the stories and struggles of some of the kids NVEEE works with, and it draws you to do anything you can to help. This is a worthwhile organization that holds as priority to help kids feel important, acknowledged, and encouraged to be who they are without fearing the outside world.
NVEEE's PALS has done nothing but bring a smile to my face since the first time I went. It's taught me so much not just about others, but about myself. This summit was definitely an eye opening experience for me.
