About Us

Hey U.G.L.Y., which stands for Unique Gifted Lovable You, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to empowering youth to be their true selves and part of the solution to bullying, substance abuse and youth suicide. Our website and school assemblies have been saving the lives of youth who are suicidal because of being bullied.

Bullying has been proven to be a gateway to substance abuse and is a leading cause of youth violence, suicide, self-injury, eating disorders, low grades, truancy and dropping out of school. Please help us empower youth!

Utilizing peer-to-peer learning Hey U.G.L.Y. helps students, schools and youth-serving organizations co-create an environment of respect, acceptance and inclusion. Since 2002 Hey U.G.L.Y. has helped millions of students through their heyugly.org website, Choose To Change radio show, contests, curriculum and interactive assembly presentations. Hey U.G.L.Y.'s world class speakers give students the tools they need to squish out that negative voice in their head that tells them they are not good enough. 

You can support Hey U.G.L.Y. through product purchases, donations and sponsorships.
