Free2Luv embraces everyone’s freedom to love. This nonprofit organization believes all love begins with self-love, and their mission—to create a braver, kinder, safer world for youth—is born of a passion for inspiring and enabling youth to be their true, authentic selves. Through outreach and awareness campaigns, Free2Luv works to bring communities together, position healthy role models, and uplift and empower youth to express their individuality while celebrating community. By embracing individuality, spreading kindness, and standing up to bullying through arts and entertainment, they hope to achieve the goal of leaving no child feeling alone, unwanted, or helpless.
A top-rated GreatNonprofits organization for five consecutive years for their community outreach, volunteerism, and positive impact on youth, Free2Luv is also proud to be a certified participating organization for The President’s Volunteer Service Award. They are joined and supported by 26 celebrity ambassadors, over 100 youth advocates from 26 states and 12 countries, and numerous companies, all of whom help spread the message: LUV is STRONGER than hate and BRAVER than bullying.
Free2Luv’s art and music empowerment workshops benefit inner city and minority youth by providing outlets for positive self-expression, personal growth, and healing. They also promote pro-social friendships and work to help youth develop strong interpersonal skills and increase self-esteem. Participants learn to consider the impact of their words and actions and leave Free2Luv events knowing they can make a difference in their world.
Through the WE CARE program, Free2Luv gifts empowerment packages to children who are being bullied, considering self-harm, or struggling to understand or assert identity.
Free2Luv knows youth are the future. With your support, they can continue to empower youth to advocate kindness, acceptance, responsibility and friendship.
Free2Luv also invites youth to join their Youth Advocacy program in order to help uplift other young people who once felt hopeless.
