should be
able to experience

I was raised on an old farm in a small town.

There was a lot to love about my hometown. But like many rural communities, no one really talked about mental health. As a closeted gay kid, I felt stifled. I often struggled to get out of bed and go to school. And for years, I couldn’t imagine a version of my life I wanted to live.

It would’ve made all the difference to have a mentor, coach or counselor help me reflect on who I was—and who I wanted to be.

It would’ve made all the difference to have a mentor, coach or counselor help me reflect on who I was—and who I wanted to be. Years later, I’m so grateful to have a strong community and sense of self.

But kids shouldn’t have to wait to get the support they deserve. They should aspire to more than getting out of bed and making it to class. They should be able to experience joy, and they deserve to envision and build a life they’re excited to live.

At Cartwheel, our team is doing everything we can to make this vision a reality. But we can’t do it alone. We hope you’ll join us in making school a place where everyone thrives.
