About our organization:

  • Beyond Differences was founded in the Bay Area in 2010, and we are now on our 3rd year of programming in Portland. Our Mission is to inspire students at all middle schools nationwide to end social isolation and create a culture of belonging for everyone.

  • We are a student-led organization. We believe that change can only be true and lasting if the agents of that change are youth themselves.

  • We are the only organization singularly focused on ending social isolation. Social isolation is often the precondition to the bullying, teasing and violence that occur too often in our schools and communities. By focusing on social isolation, Beyond Differences helps prevent bullying and teasing instead of reacting to it.

  • Our program is free for all participants and all of the materials are free for schools, as well. This year, in Portland, the following schools are participating in our High School Teen Board, Middle School Leadership Program and/or are implementing the Beyond Differences Know Your Classmates, No One Eats Alone & Be Kind Online curriculum. We hope to add more schools next year! High Schools: Grant, Jefferson, Cleveland, Franklin, Benson, Lincoln and St. Mary's. Middle Schools: Harrison Park, Laurelhurst, Roseway Heights, West Sylvan, ACCESS Academy, Beaumont, Beverly Cleary, Lane, All Saints, Sunnyside Environmental.

We are hoping to keep Beyond Differences in Portland for many years to come as the impact has already been significant. Thanks to the dedication of local schools, the support of families and local businesses, all youth have the opportunity to feel accepted, valued and included by their peers no matter what their differences.


We hope to see you on November 8, 2018 at Plaza del Toro!
