I've Got Your Back! - Youth Connected

“I’ve Got Your Back” is a program designed and developed by high school students.

It is intended to bring a message of support and awareness to younger students, before they enter high school, that will serve them throughout their school years.

It is believed that current day problems such as cyberbullying and sexting can best be solved by the interaction of youth, connecting with other youth.

If every classroom in every school decides they will not tolerate bullying or cyberbullying then these problems will cease to exist.

Have someone else’s back and invite them to have yours. This action will end bullying and cyberbullying in our schools.
