Our mission is to provide a positive social media community to help teens live a healthy life, feeling connected to a community of supportive peers, while working towards fulfilling their potential.

A Message from Lauren

“Level Up is the culmination of all my years of professional (and personal) work. The idea came to me during a retreat weekend in which I was brainstorming about how to positively impact more teens beyond my local community. When the covid quarantine hit, it was the perfect time to develop and launch this exciting program. I am extremely passionate about creating a safe space for teens to come together online to feel supported and inspired every single day. I look forward to helping your teen to Level Up with us soon!”
