Recording, collecting, viewing, hearing and listening to teen experiences

Throughout 2020 & 2021, the #WeWereHere Project worked with 250+ teens and 50+ organizations in order to create a repository of the actions teens were taking in order to spread positivity during difficult times.

Recently, the #WeWereHere Project has decided to pause submissions as we transition to a hopefully bright future. Although submissions have ben paused, this website will stay be live as a read-only format where you may now view and comment on past submissions. Support for the teen community is always appreciated!
