"Julia's Joy" in memory of Julia Morath

image43

"Julia’s Joy" is a free Teen & Tween Empowerment Program for girls and boys created in memory of Julia Morath. Julia, a 14 year old Freshman at Spring-Ford High School in Pennsylvania,  was unable to find her true self and joy in this life. She sadly made an impulsive decision to choose suicide in April of 2017 after a viral Cyber bullying incident. Her family, friends and the team at Pillars of Light and Love have developed this program to help 11-19 year olds to learn to live their best life, and to become the greatest versions of themselves. Teen suicide is up 200%, one in three teens have a diagnosed mental disorder, gaming is now a mental disorder and drug use and heroin overdoses are rapidly increasing. We believe teaching strong coping skills, self-acceptance, self-love, self-respect , self-responsibility and most importantly RESILIENCE, will empower youth and help them make positive choices in relationships, health and life.

This initial program was brought to the community through donations from Julia's friends and family. To help us continue our program, please consider a donation HERE.

"JULIA'S JOY TEEN TALK"

The Julia's Joy Teen Program first ran weekly for the Summer of 2017.  Based on feedback, we transformed the group into a more informal group. It has evolved to a weekly program held 6:45-8:45pm each Wednesday evening. There are now two group facilitators. After a time of socialization, 13-15 year-olds and 16-19 year-olds each have their own facilitator for an hour of conversation. We welcome newcomers at any time! Topics include life, school, friends, relationships & more. Those who come always look forward to coming back!
