Valerie WeislerBullying Prevention & Youth Empowerment
Valerie Weisler founded The Validation Project at the age of 14 after being bullied and then seeing another classmate being bullied. She told him that he mattered and those two words changed everything for him while sparking action within her.
Valerie’s award-winning non-profit organization is based on the premise that a little positive affirmation goes a long way and matches teens all over the world with a mentor who shares similar passions or skills. They work together for a minimum of four hours per week for two months and upon completing the mentorship portion, participants agree to put their passion and knowledge to work through volunteering.
