Be Present Calendar


Please watch, comment on and share our Be Present videos. As you learn to Be Present, we hope you share “what works for you” with other young people just like you. Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter – reach out on via social media to spread the word!

Peer-to-peer outreach in your school or community is a great way to be a leader. The Resources Page has campaign materials and other files you can see, listen to and share with your friends and peers.

Create as an Advocate

At the Campaign Advocate or Campaign Leader levels, you will learn how to plan a school assembly, sponsor a Be Present event, form a peer support group or hold a campus rally about the issues that matter most to you. For now, learn more about the Advocate and Leader levels by clicking here.
