You Matter Too is a minority-owned, woman-owned nonprofit organization mainly focused on helping children who are victims of bullying in the public schools of Maricopa County. We do this by invading elementary and middle schools in Maricopa County, identifying the bullied and the bullies through our unique resources, and intentionally providing customized interventions, with a focus on long-term, sustainable results. What makes our organization different is that we are able provide individualized programming and mentorships in addition to a school’s current bullying curriculum, and we can easily adapt to the needs of each particular school through relationships and collaborations.
Our target audience is elementary and middle school children, both the bullies and the bullied, in Maricopa County Public Schools.
You Matter Too focuses on improving and bringing awareness to elementary and middle school children in Maricopa County about bullying, mental health, and youth suicide. You Matter Too has served 27 elementary and middle schools.
Our Mission is to reach the youth that are being bullied and the bullies. To build lasting relationships with each child that we help to let them know that they "Matter".
To build self -esteem, confidence, and to give hope to the youth through Mentorship. With each interaction letting them know how much they belong and how much they are needed to make the world a better place.
“You matter too!” is actually an offensive measure to, ultimately, save lives.
