Be Strong Student State Representative Program

Be Strong’s innovative student volunteer program recruits, trains, equips, and supports young change agents (8-17 years old). These courageous leaders are the frontline of strengthening mental, emotional, and relational health. Join us to save and improve lives by helping us reach our goal of a Be Strong Student Representative and peer group in every middle and high school!

I am Strong, You are Strong, We are Strong

How It Works

Be Strong’s Student State Reps are young change agents from grades 4+ in small towns and big cities across the country. They are nominated by teachers, counselors, administrators, and other members of their community to serve at the front-line of kindness and inclusion, impacting their schools & communities in big ways.

After receiving your nomination, you’ll be contacted to schedule a brief qualifying interview with your nominee to discuss the program opportunity and details.


Be Strong Student State Reps change the social climate through kindness, inclusion, resilience, advocacy & awareness.

We Dine Together

Reps are also the founders of their schools’ We Dine Together initiative, fostering a more inclusive environment, making sure no one has to eat alone.


Be Strong is a national non-profit whose mission is to save and improve the lives of students using a peer-to-peer approach by strengthening mental, emotional, and relational health, building resilience and preventing bullying.

Empowering students Through We Dine Together

One of the ways we empower students is by having them pioneer positive, peer-led programs in their schools. We do this through the Be Strong Student State Representative Program.

Every month we engage with our reps via social impact volunteerism, advocacy, awareness, resilience training and inclusion. Our student reps serve as the founders & leaders of their school’s We Dine Together initiative - creating more inclusive social atmospheres on campus. Students on every middle and high school campus eat lunch in empty classrooms, remote corners and bathroom stalls because they don’t feel connection with their peers, but our reps work to eliminate social isolation & make sure no student feels they have to eat alone.
