notMYkid is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides children and families with truly lifesaving programs, support, resources, and education. Our mission for the past two decades has been to empower and educate youth, families, and communities with the knowledge and courage to identify and prevent negative youth behavior. Our impact is far reaching. To date, we have served over 2 million individuals and aim to reach 75,000 annually through our statewide and national programs.

Events

notMYkid holds two signature events each year that serve as our largest source of private funding for our youth and family programs. Our Fall Breakfast was held on November 7th, 2019 for over 350 guests with our keynote speaker Alex Berensen, NY Times Bestselling Author of the book, Tell Your Children: The Truth about Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence.

As we look ahead to 2020, notMYkid will be celebrating our twentieth year of service! Save the Date as we prepare for our Platinum Celebration at the Scottsdale Resort to honor our rich history of service and set the 20/20 Vision for our Future on April 3rd, 2020. More details to come soon on sponsorship opportunities for this event!

Programs

We are dedicated to helping youth overcome challenges during their most vulnerable years.  Our programs are delivered in schools, community organizations, at the workplace, and direct to devices via our Podcast. The prevention topics we focus on include substance use, vaping, bullying, relationships, body image, depression/self-injury/suicide, and internet safety.

notMYkid works to educate and provide coping skills to young people on a range of issues that preteens and teens face every day. With a goal to inspire positive life choices, notMYkid strives to realize the following outcomes through our Prevention Education programming:

  • Build students’ knowledge and social/emotional competencies to enhance resiliency, confidence, and character
  • Educate students and families on where to go and how to ask for help if they or someone they know is struggling with a mental or behavioral health issue

amplif(i) and LifeSkills Training

notMYkid offers two signature programs for youth in grades 5-12. Choose from our popular peer-led amplif(i) programming or our 10-week LifeSkills Training offered in schools and community settings. amplif(i) youth presentations aim to educate, empower and inspire youth with the knowledge and courage to make positive life choices. Botvin LifeSkills Training is an evidence-based curriculum that has been proven to be effective at reducing things such as youth substance use and violence, while teaching teen’s crucial knowledge and the ability to help them successfully navigate life.

Project Rewind

Project Rewind is a peer-to-peer prevention and early intervention program for teens experiencing mild to moderate problems associated with alcohol and/or other drug use. We believe in strengthening family connection, communication and setting appropriate boundaries to protect and support our youth in making positive life choices. Parent involvement is a requirement of the program to achieve the best outcomes possible. Participating families also receive personalized support to implement an effective family prevention plan.

Corporate Wellness

notMYkid’s employee education program supports the health and wellness of parents and caregivers in the workplace. One of the greatest hidden influences that impacts productivity in the workplace is the distraction of family issues. Employees receive valuable information on current trends, warning signs, prevention strategies, and the long-term impact that destructive youth behaviors can have on their families and community. notMYkid partners with local law enforcement and the FBI to educate with the most up to date information on substance use, depression/self-harm/suicide, bullying/cyber-bullying, and Internet safety.

Parent and Faculty Education

notMYkid empowers caregivers, school faculty, faith communities, and anyone that interacts with youth with up-to-date informational workshops and more intensive professional training on the following topic: substance use prevention; drug trend updates specifically addressing opioids, marijuana, and vaping-related health concerns; suicide alertness; depression and mental health issues affecting children (elementary, middle school and high school specific content); navigating internet safety and social media apps; body image; relationships; and other behavioral health concerns that may be affecting your community. Our seasoned team of prevention experts are trainers of nationally recognized programs in suicide alertness and intervention which include: SafeTalk, ASIST and Mental Health First Aid.
