I have been working with Beyond Differences for the past two years. Beyond Differences is a great organization that works with the middle schools to make them more accepting places. Beyond Differences address an issue that is incredibly prevalent and not often talked about. I am incredibly proud to be a member of the Teen Board.

Beyond Differences is dedicated to ending social isolation among middle school students -- something we all believe is important and currently not being discussed as a positive and preventative remedy to the serious issues of teasing, bullying and violence. Beyond Differences is unique, too, in that it is led by a 33-member Teen Board of Directors themselves high school students. The Teen Board leads middle school assembly programs for 5th - 8th graders and the positive role modeling they provide the younger students is fantastic! Beyond Differences provides in-school, after-school and community based programs all at no charge. I think they are one of the most exciting and effective organizations around! I hope they win the Great Nonprofit Award!
