The Youth on The Site


All of the kids featured on the "We Need to Talk" website live in the metro Detroit area. We are extremely grateful for their participation and willingness to share their stories and insights. Many of the teens are also participants in Friendship Circle's UMatter program. We are greatly appreciative for the support and partnership of everyone involved in UMatter. Learn more here.
