On November 28th, H.M. Queen Silvia attended Mentor USA's benefit event at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington D.C. The event brought together influencers from business and government compassionate about the health and wellbeing of young people.
Today, the Swedish-based non-profit organization, Mentor International, launches its first global social media campaign #myteenageme coordinated on three different continents and in multiple countries around the world.
Today is #GivingTuesday, a global giving movement built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities around the world to encourage people to come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Last month, Mentor Sweden took over Stockholm’s Central Station and transformed the main hall into a “Mentor Day” for adults and teenagers to meet. It was a full day packed with competitions, choir and dance performances, interviews with astronauts, panel discussions with business leaders and “micro-mentoring.”
Thoughts of the future can be overwhelming for adolescents and young people; they can cause anxiety and depression. It is so important for teenagers to have someone who will listen and to whom they can talk.
