Eden Prairie Teacher
Change the Outcome has become an essential part of our health curriculum over the past 4 years. Their program is one of the best we offer our students and we appreciate the in-depth education this organization provides.
I think that it is very educational and makes everyone aware of things going on in the community. It helped me better understand the severity of substance misuse. All of you were really well spoken and had way more impact coming from you than a teacher.
Having honest conversations with youth about what’s happening in their communities with regard to drugs is crucial. It helps them understand misconceptions related to drug use.
St. Paul Student
One of my best friends overdosed twice. Even though she’s got a year of sobriety, she still gets cravings. If she ever relapses and overdoses while I’m around, I’ll know what to do. Thanks.
I really want to say thank you. It helped to hear this stuff, and from someone who’s struggled a lot in the past few years, this felt really important to hear to keep me away from going down a path that would bring me somewhere I can’t easily turn away from.
I liked how different this program was from others we’ve had. Instead of lecturing us not to do drugs, you guys had an open discussion with us about facts and the real consequences of substance use. You were inspiring!
Meet Our Founder
In an effort to make something good come from my heartache I began volunteering on different efforts surrounding the opioid epidemic after we lost Luke. I became a board member with the Steve Rummler Hope Network after volunteering there for several months, I’ve worked with several community coalitions in the twin cities and northern Minnesota, and participated in Hennepin County’s NoOverdose Campaign to assist in educating communities about current drug dangers, trends and prevention through town hall meetings. My work on these different areas made me realize that my heart is with the kids—I need to try to reach kids! So much of the work being done is focused on reacting to this national health crisis. I believe we can save a lot of lives through efforts aimed at prevention. Information is power, and if young people have the facts they can be aware of the problem and make their decisions accordingly.
