Our Vision

If teenagers can share freely and safely with peers the difficulties they go through, if they can safely voice the challenges they face, there is no more stigma nor taboo and it allows them to believe in themselves and in their future.

Our Mission

To create and support a safe and trustworthy environment where we, as teenagers, know that whatever challenge we struggle with, Give Us The Floor is THE community where we will find peers that have faced or are facing the same challenges. Teens encourage, support each other, and share wisdom. We share common challenges and we are not alone.

OUR CURRENT INTERNS

Hailey
My name is Hailey. I’m 13 and I use she/her pronouns. I love music and art! I play piano and guitar, love to write, and I am on Student Council and Hope Squad. The things that make me happiest are making music, having amazing experiences (roller coasters and concerts for example), and lastly, being with the people I love. It is the best feeling to be surrounded by people who love you! Equity and equality are some of the very most important things to me. I believe everyone deserves a fair chance at everything in life. We must respect everyone because in most cases, we have no idea what is going on in their life. We even should always show respect to ourselves, and not put ourselves down. I always get an amazing feeling being able to help someone. It is really cool to know that I have saved lives just by talking to people.

Isabella
Isabella is a true nerd, who loves math and science. She is an avid reader and the best taste-tester. Isabella is an active member of her community and works to lift up the voices of her fellow teens, through leadership positions within her school’s Student Advisory Council, the North Carolina Association of Teen Democrats, and the North Carolina Virtual Public School’s Peer Tutoring Center. She hopes her work with Give Us The Floor will help show adults, and teens themselves, how capable and passionate young people can be. We are the future, after all.

Lindsey
I’m Lindsey Luis, 17-year-old from Vancouver, Washington state. I have a strong passion for social justice and one day want to create a change in this world that will live on far beyond myself! I believe there are many issues in this world that need to be changed, which is what led me to become involved in politics and political activism. I hope to one day become the first Mexican-American female president! I’ve joined GUTF because I want to learn more from people. I want to one day be able to represent those who have little to no representation in society and Give Us The Floor gives me that opportunity which I have been searching for.

Nicolas
Hi, my name is Nico. I am 16 years old and I live in San Francisco. I care a lot about how exterior actions affect oneself. For example, if someone calls you ugly I care not only about preventing people from saying those things in the first place, but more importantly about how you take the comment and prevent it from affecting you, which can be very hard. I am a very big fan of physics, math and sciences. Sometimes I find myself watching videos about some random theory that I seriously do not understand, but it is fun for me. I am also a fan of outdoor activities which I do for entertainment, but they also help me clear my mind from school and work. I joined Give Us The Floor because I have realized how devastating depression, stress and racial or sexist biases can affect someone's behaviour in many negative ways. Once I saw how badly these internal emotions can harm oneself and others, I wanted to help people work around these problems which I know is very hard to do but I want to help. I hope to be able to help as many people as possible and make people feel better about themselves which would make me feel happy too.
