Our Mission

ForeverU is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is empowering youth on their mental health journey through personal development programs and experiences.


We were founded in 2012 by Ryan Hesslau, who at the time was only 16 years old, after researching the stories of students his age who had died by suicide. Their stories became his motivation for developing programs that would ensure that youth who were struggling had the resilience to keep living. Today, Ryan continues to lead ForeverU as the President and Executive Director.
