Why should I or someone I know join SHE?
We're a virtual space to meet thousands of teenagers from across the country. We're a social community build for you, by other teenagers who are interested in similar topics with questions and challenges just like you. You can access content and smaller, curated communities like mental health, self-care, future planning, and so much more!
What are your community agreements and guidelines?
If you are unkind, disrespectful, and/or violate the boundaries of a fellow member, you will be removed from the group.
How do I know this is a safe, virtual space? Do you curate or monitor the conversations?
We monitor all the conversations. Not in a "big brother watching" sort of way, but we have a community manager from our team as well as a teen ambassador/leader overseeing all the conversations.
How does SHE improve the lives and well-being of it's members?
We've had members share stories of feeling less anxious and depressed with others sharing stories of building confidence and gaining clarity on what college or major they want to pursue. Most importantly, members have shared they now have a supportive group they can now call friends.
As a friendly reminder, the SHE community currently is not a replacement for therapy or additional clinical support!
I want to get more involved! What do I do?
Yay! We love that. Join the community and you can take on a leadership position either through leading or starting a new sub community based on interest or identity (these groups can be about any topic you're interested in like mental health, STEM, being a first gen college student, etc). We also have a GenZ advisory board that we open applications for each year and internship positions that we offer throughout the year.
What if a member has a negative experience in your community? How do I know this won't be a community where members will spread negative or toxic information? What is in place to deal with this possibility?
What do you do with the personal information of members?
I want to contact a SHE team member to give feedback or learn more about how I can contribute to what you're doing!
Yes! We love feedback :) You can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any feedback or if you're already part of the community, reach out to any of the administrators or community leaders through the platform and we'll get right back to you!
Our mission is to provide the necessary and accessible support that all young people need to thrive in this world. This includes all women, cis or trans, and all non-binary and gender nonconforming young people. We are not a platform that only empowers cis-gendered young women; there is space for everyone at our table. The goal is to change the face of social networks, to give you the platform to use your voice and tell our community and the world your story. In order to do this, SHE works to be a safe space for all gender identities. We have room for you, your ideas, and your voice.
We encourage and value diversity in background, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, self expression, physicality, ability, neuro-divergence, economic status, and educational background. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, queer-phobia, hateful language, ableism, bigotry, body shaming, or intolerance of any kind.
