Finding You in the New Year

Much of the stress of being a teen is related to finding and expressing who you are.

Change to Chill hopes to help teens form a better understanding of who they are and to feel positive and accepting of themselves.

That’s why we will be launching new content related to “Stress & Identity” throughout 2022. This will help teens understand the concept of identity and provide tools to help them reflect on their own identities.

This will also include specific tools and resources for those teens from historically underserved communities, including those who identify as Black or African American, Latinx, Native or Indigenous, and/or LGTBQ+.

This work is ongoing and Change to Chill will continue to approach it with intention. Stay tuned for more!

Community Happenings

Escape the Vape is a PSA video contest where Minnesota 6th-12th graders can use their voices to raise awareness about the dangers of vaping. To participate, students must submit a 30 second PSA video to educate their peers, schools, families, and community on the risks of vaping nicotine.

Change to Chill is partnering with Escape the Vape to provide merchandise for new school promotion kits, which will be mailed to the first 50 schools that apply. For more information, check out

We hope your New Year is off to a great start! More to come from Change to Chill throughout 2022.
