We the Wild Youth is an event to launch a youth empowerment movement to inspire and empower all youth to believe in themselves, have their voices heard, their initiatives supported, and to showcase the supportive resources that already lie within our community. We the Wild Youth is visioned and organized by Francesca Bas (2019 Keep Oregon Well Mental Health Hero), a 17 year old student who has decided to stop accepting the things she cannot change, and start changing the things she can no longer accept. This event is welcoming and open for all youth as a safe space to feel empowered, supported, and have youth voices amplified.

The Keep Oregon Well Street Team left this event full of hope and inspired by the dynamic youth that participated in this event. Thank you Francesca for connecting us to the community you’ve built. We look forward to seeing it grow.
