Thanks to everyone for your support! Beginning on Christmas Day, five youth council members will be helping us to manage our new fan page on, one of the largest youth online social networks. myYearbook has generously offered to donate regular homepage takeovers, which will drive thousands of users to "fan" us on their site. We have been working with our council members to train them to be ambassadors on our behalf as well as monitoring our page for any posts from myYearbook members who may be in crisis. This outreach is part of a larger strategy to be where young people are, i.e. "the digital streets" vs. forcing them to find us. We feel it is important to have young people on the front lines (our council members), letting other young people know about our resource. Attached are images of what our homepage takeover and fan page will look like. Check out on x-mas Day to see it live!
