Today's young people are faced with more challenges than those of generations before, courtesy of social media. Studies show that technology is having emotional implications that have long-term effects. The excessive media consumption is linked to less happiness, less social skills, less sense of community (FOMO is Real!), and less mental stability. All of these issues intersect and contribute to low self-worth, which directly impacts positive relationships with others.
PACT helps young adults recognize the power of self-worth and its significance in maintaining healthy relationships. We promise young people ages 16-24 a BOLD lifestyle. For us, such a daring, brave and fearless way of life means having the confidence and people skills to command and manage equal partnerships. We believe that by honoring ourselves - our bodies, our values, our voice - we can build happy, healthy and fulfilling relationships in our community.
