First Post – You are welcome here!

Last year, in a national survey, we asked you how you felt every day in schools. You told us. Over 20,000 of you said said you felt mostly tired, stressed, and bored in school.

We heard you.

In that same survey, we asked you how you want to feel every day.

  • Respected and valued.
  • Happy and energized.
  • Inspired and empowered.

We heard you. And we created inspirED to help you feel the way you want to feel. Simply put, inspirED is a movement for emotional wellbeing in schools. inspirED runs on the creativity of students, educators, and community leaders like you, all over the United States. Working together, we can change the way teens in this nation feel every day.

This blog will be a home for articles, videos, photos and more by you, for you. Check back regularly to follow our team as we work to bring you the real tools you need to change the emotional climate in your schools, communities, and lives. We look forward to supporting you in your journey – please reach out at any time to inspirED@yale.edu.

It’s your life. Feel the way you want to feel, every day.
