We — and you! — did it! 


We met the minimum goal we needed to to avoid a strike and having to shut down any of our services.  A strike will now NOT be happening.

We can’t thank the 1,000+ of you enough who have given a donation to help us do this, and who have made it possible for all the young people who need and use our services to keep on using them without interruption. same goes for all of you who retweeted, reblogged, wrote appeals and invested your time and energy and heart into helping us do this.  We appreciate all of you so much.

Better still? A generous donor who wants Scarleteen to have more than the minimum to work with, and do what they can to get us past surviving and into thriving, has offered up a $10,000 match for all donations given from April 15th to May 1st! So, anything you give now through May 1st will be matched, dollar for dollar, for up to $10,000 worth. If we can meet that whole match, that would shuttle us well out of our current crisis and into a better position financially than we have ever been.  Thanks so much to everyone who has already given to support us; thanks to you in advance for your gift, too!


Please keep donating! Scarleteen does so much on so little - if they had more funding, just think of the possibilities!




No media about the fact that there’s a All Male,  African American High school on the southside of chicago who year after year has a 100% graduating senior class who ALL get accepted to 4 year universities/colleges.

they just want to talk about how whether a person’s death on the southside is gang related or not.


This is ridiculously impressive.

I’m just looking up sources, and the statistics are really incredible.
