Tell Them‘s January social media campaign asks organizations, programs, and businesses in South Carolina, “What are you doing in 2014 to encourage healthier youth in SC?”

has been working tirelessly in the community to educate and to help put an end to domestic violence and dating abuse. We have held many functions to educate, including, "Wrap It Up" talk sessions where teens and young adults have a safe zone to share anything going on with them, and to report any kind of dating abuse they know of in their schools, homes or communities. We have also partnered with different organizations including, United Way's AALG to do mentoring sessions to uplift those in our community. We have gone into community centers and churches to talk about about domestic violence, knowing the signs, who it affects and where to seek help. The work has not been without failure, because we are seeing more thriving, and vibrant communities who we have fostered a relationship with.
We've also contributed with our share of community service by hosting food drives for Harvest Hope, serving dinner at the Greenville Rescue Mission, or with our own Super Saturday Program, where we go out and help revitalize a house in a community.
2014 looks to be just as exciting with planned events already in place, such as our Mentoring For Greatness, where we will partner with TellThemSC to do a Mentoring Class for Youth and an Adult Talk, our year's biggest fundraiser event in September, where we will have a 'nonprofit unveiling' of who we are, also we do a Giving Back to the Community event in August to give out School supplies.
We hope you will continue to support us, and follow us on Facebook to see what we have going on.
