OUR CREW

OUR CREW

 

Our BLOOMin' CREW of staff, interns, volunteers and lead peer advocates create an organizational culture that is inclusive, empathetic, supportive, kind, and innovative.

The work we do is fun, hopeful and challenging. Our goal is to educate and activate 10% of young people across the U.S. as Peer Advocates to #UprootAbuse by the year 2030. This #BHAG2030 requires everyone on our team to show up with grit, passion, focus and love.

 

We boldly have an end date in mind; it's the day when domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers and mass shooting drills at school are no longer needed. That is the day when our work will be complete. To reach this culture changing goal, we lean on each other for support and value those who invest in us and partner with us to #UprootAbuse.
