Learning Problem

Fears and anxieties about going to high school, both academic and social, can be debilitating for young people. Facing issues such as more demanding academics, peer pressure, drugs, sexuality and body image, while normal to struggle with, can interfere with academic progress and overall well being. Though there are many reliable resources available, young people mostly turn to their peers for advice and information, which may or may not be accurate. Sometimes, questions are withheld because they are perceived to be embarrassing or trivial. iveBeenThere, a mobile app with videos made by older teen mentors offering advice, accurate information, and personal stories, addresses questions and concerns of transitioning teens not only when they need it, but in a safe and confidential space.
