As part of this event, attendees will be able to:
• Tell and hear stories of the most authentic, personal kind.
• Build resilience as you explore and articulate your values, fears, and dreams.
• Help others cope if you decide to share your story.
Tell Your Story:
After this event you will be invited to submit your video story, to the Hope & Cope story platform. Your story will be compiled and returned to you as your own personal story capsule of your experiences.
If you give permission for Forefront and 5000 days staff to review it, your story may be among those selected to help others. Selected clips will appear on social media, the Forefront website and perhaps even in the newspaper and on TV. Together, the stories will anchor a youth-powered campaign on coping with the challenges we face.
