A percentage of purchases will go to support Momentum’s Mission Trip to Guyana, SA March 5 -12, 2016! This group of 5 students, along with two adults, will be heading to Guyana to bring hope to a country that boasts the highest suicide rate in the world!  The plan is to visit 7-10 schools and speak to 1,500 – 2,000 students about the warning signs of depression and to share with everyone that they are accepted, appreciated, acknowledged, and cared for!

Aevidum’s goal is to create a positive mental health environment, a culture of “I Got Your Back” in schools and communities across the nation by forming Aevidum chapters and by empowering youth. The Aevidum message is delivered creatively through a series of student-generated materials, interactive displays, high-energy assemblies, community events, music, artwork, stories, and PSAs, etc. Aevidum, which started in 2004 after a student died by suicide, earned SADD’s National Activity of the Year award in 2009, selected from more than 10,000 schools from across the nation. The organization has been recognized by the Pennsylvania Senate, Pennsylvania House, the nation’s top mental health experts, the mental health directors of New York and Ohio, and professors at the Penn State University, Florida State University, and the University of Maryland. In addition to appearing on TV, radio and in newspapers across Pa, Aevidum has appeared on Good Morning America. At the core of Aevidum is an educational philosophy that empowers students to take responsibility to make a difference. Aevidum students are encouraged to use their gifts and talents to succeed and to recognize the gifts and talents of their peers. Our goal for the 2013/2014 year is to transform schools by creating an “I’ve got your back” atmosphere, providing a universal sense of security and a chance for students to realize their full potential. The Aevidum Experience will raise awareness of the main issues facing young people and develop a culture of “I’ve got your back!” through a series of actions, large and small. Advisors empower students to take the information from the experts and to use their gifts and talents to get the facts across to their friends, giving young people the opportunity to educate, empower, and inspire their peers. This year, we have created a comprehensive template that will allow advisors to guide and support their clubs throughout the year. The template will keep clubs on the same page, allowing further collaboration between Aevidum schools. As always, there is flexibility in the model, if a school desires it. The result is a powerful, unified effort to create change.
