You Are IT: supporting the emotional development of our children
We are a non-profit organization created to support
children and teens in their psycho-emotional development.
Children and teens experience increasingly high levels of stress,
anxiety, and depression. You Are IT teaches them how to manage their emotions and connect with joy in challenging situations.
You Are IT encourage children and teens to discover who they are and embrace their strengths and talents.
Jointly with Vibi, You Are IT developed a program in
Spanish for adults to optimize their mental and emotional health.
Our goal is to prepare such program in English.
We are also preparing similar program for children and teens
where they canto explore learn these life tools directly in an
entertaining and interacting way.
Every donation we receive helps us reach this goal!

What is our youth facing today?
Today our children are confronted with many more stimuli than all previous generations: social media, content on demand and numerous fashions that spread at great speed.
According to research, social media and new trends have made young people and children find themselves in constant comparison and competition with their peers. Although internet advantages can be of great help, they have also shifted social dynamics causing multiple emocional problems
An issue that needs the proper attention
We want to make things better
We believe many teens and young adults lack a healthy psycho-emotional development, even when they are part of a stable family and their basic needs are well covered.
You Are IT wants to create a support program to prevent children from developing emotional problems, and give them tools to help them feel comfortable with themselves and prevent future mental health issues.
Our core values
Learn self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision- making.
Study of the strengths (talents) that contribute to individual and community thriving and well-being.
Learn and practice mindful awareness to develop focused attention, emotional balance, and well-being.
Learn about the concept of neuroplasticity, and how your brain regulates emotions.
Made to strenghten family bonds
Parents participate in exercises and dynamics with their children and teens to understand their challenges, goals and aspirations. The family environment can become the most frustrating part of their life if they feel inadequately supported.
Perfect to be shared at school
At You Are IT, we believe that schools can greatly support the emotional development of children.
Educators will be able to incorporate You Are IT’s various programs with exercises that complement academic growth.
Free-access material for all
Parents and educators will have free access to the content of the basic program for children and teens.
You Are IT wants to touch as many lives as possible.
