Teen Talk Series
On May 8th, the Victoria’s Voice Foundation launched its inaugural Instagram Live Virtual Influencer Series whereby over 2500 youth from around the country participated in the social media segment. The event was held to connect young people with influencers who spoke about their personal experiences with drug addiction, shared their favorite segments, and read aloud excepts from Victoria’s Voice book in an effort to let participants know they are not alone in their fight to live a drug-free life.
Mental wellness helplines and critical links were shared with attendees and participants sent letters of gratitude and thanks for the opportunity to be heard following the event. Several virtual social media live events will be held throughout the year in an effort to provide a forum whereby young people are inspired by the influencers they look up to, heard, helped, and understood.
