Young people might still be figuring out who they are, but we believe they should have a voice in shaping their future. Social emotional wellness is one of the most important factors to a thriving life, and curaJOY empower youth to speak up about their challenges and co-create solution that break stereotypes, heal divides and make a huge difference in their lives and the rest of ours.
MiniJOY Ambassadors are high-caliber high school and college students with demonstrated communication skills selected to be guided by adult mentors from the healthcare, nonprofit, management, and tech industries. These young people bring valuable perspectives and insights into the challenges today’s youth face and work with curaJOY’s team to problem-solve issues like racism, bullying, gender dysphoria and learning disabilities. Through collaborative projects and monthly in-person meetings, MiniJOY ambassadors learn marketing, graphic design, web development, and user interaction design and gain hands-on working experience. These young changemakers are at the forefront of social impact, education and behavioral health, representing struggling or under-represented youth to level the playing field so that everyone has the emotional strength to go as far as they want to go in life.
