Unfiltered Facts is a six-session educational program for high school students. Our volunteers meet with selected students throughout the school year to present program series developed by the curriculum team. The six-session series focuses on topics such as decision-making, boundaries and values, social media, dating and relationship abuse, mental health, human trafficking, the teenage brain and addiction, and Louisiana law as it relates to consent and sexual abuse. By encouraging student participation in a safe and confidential environment, the students truly take ownership of the information and gain confidence in discussing what are often taboo subjects. This empowers them to become educators of their peers and fellow students while also learning to diffuse or stop conflict and poor decision making among themselves and their peers.
We have been overwhelmed with the support from our community. All of our team members are volunteers with no one receiving compensation for their time. All services are offered to the school system free of charge. Sponsorships to help offset the costs of the program, such as printed materials for our students to use with their peers, scholarship funding, education and vetting of all volunteers, and non-salary administrative costs. The Southwest Louisiana Youth Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
