Are you looking to make a difference for this generation? If yes, we can give you the right opportunity to use your skills for impacting the youth mental wellbeing agenda! Did you know that millennials (people born after 1981) have experienced a bigger negative impact on their mental health than any other age group during Covid-19? Or are you aware that 44% of millennials globally feel stressed out most of the time? If you are a millennial yourself, you might have experienced this firsthand or secondhand. But not to worry: you can have a positive impact on this, helping to provide this generation with the necessary tools to cope with the increased societal challenges. But you won’t be alone: you’ll be joining a team that is equally passionate about bringing change and improving everyday life for all of us! Are you in?
