One family’s story

Youth wearing glasses and backward cap, holding Converse high-top that says "Love is love"

On a 2018 Nexus field trip to Converse headquarters

Our middle school participants never cease to amaze us. Their self-knowledge, enthusiasm, and kindness are contagious. When we ask them about their experiences in our Nexus program, 100% of participants report making at least one friend by attending meetings—and many develop an entire social circle!

Although they are young, many of our participants are already using their experiences to empower others. Recently, one participant and his family shared their story with NBC Boston in the hopes that other local families would benefit. Take a peek—we know you’ll find their journey inspiring!
