After Dylan was murdered in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012, I founded the Wingman Program to foster greater empathy in society to counter the extreme levels of social isolation plaguing our youth today.

Recent studies show that 70% of teens today see "anxiety and depression" as a major problem in peers (Pew). 79% of teens wish there was an inclusive environment or safe space for people in school to talk about mental health (Harris Poll).

Now, with a pandemic on top of this crisis, enhanced emotional support is a necessity for everyone. There are many SEL programs available, but nothing quite like Wingman.
