“Kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

WHAT THE STUDENTS SAY...

“It is so easy to get lost in high school and to feel like you are alone. The best part about Upbeat is that I felt like I belonged. It provided me with an outlet to be myself without rejection or ridicule.” ~ Chelsea Farrington’12
