Another Year for the Books.

 
 

Over the past four years, we have seen a lot of growth, discovery, and positivity happening online and offline.

A Year of Growth

 
 

The past few years have gone by like a whirlwind for Kim and Matt. Going from being full time teachers to full time presenters and running a national nonprofit, these two have seen a lot. In that small amount of time, here are some numbers to celebrate. 

September of 2017 was a big month as #ICANHELP has now presented our program to over 300,000 students in the US and Canada. We are excited to be able to continue our mission of helping students be more positive and feel supported online. This school year, 2017-2018 is also one of our biggest years with close to 100 school assemblies schedule before May of 2018. 

 

With the help of a hashtag, students have been tagging and sharing our information to help us remove over 800 pages dealing with cyberbullying, harassment or impersonation. 

Our own surveys have seen an impact on student behavior with 82.7% of students saying they will be more thoughtful about what they post and 55.9% of students checking their account to make sure what they have posted is positive. 

We are also excited that this was the first year we hosted #Digital4Good. Our first annual celebration of students doing amazing work online to build a positive school culture.

#ICANHELP is dedicated to making good happen both online and offline. Working with our partners at the social media networks as well as our schools, we are able to help facilitate bring great ideas to life. 

Projects like Humans of Loara, a students led adult advised yearbook project based on Humans of New York, is now being featured as part of Facebook's InspirED education program across the US. We love seeing projects like Humans of Loara as students share their voice through projects they create to make their schools a better place. 

It feels important and great that we have a voice and that we have positivity on the internet instead of negativity.
