Monthly International Spotlight

July 2024:

Erika’s Lighthouse is an organization which raises awareness for mental health for school communities worldwide. Erika’s Lighthouse was a part of last year's governor’s project in which Carissa raised money to charter a new school! Erika’s Lighthouse provides information and resources in order to bring awareness to mental health especially to schools who may not have the resources. A few resources are presentations, conversation starters, and worksheets to be used in the classroom.

 

1 in 6 U.S. youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health disorder each year, and with no to little awareness on mental health it can lead to more struggle. Through Key Club there are fundraisers and events that help raise money for Erika’s Lighthouse in order to spread as much awareness as we can. They strive to end the youth mental health crisis at the start, so they offer ways to help those in need early on and during their struggle. 

 

Service project: Get involved by taking the 31 day Positivity Pledge! Learn more about Erika’s Lighthouse on their website.
