Millennium Fellowship Project: All In This Together
My goal is to have kind of an umbrella organization at helps students in high school organize workshops/events in their high schools to raise awareness on such issues. It will build a community. Also, I want to figure out a way to work in collaboration with psychologists/psychiatrists or if the school has the schools counsellors to help the students who want to get help after the workshops.
