About True2You

The True2You Youth Magazine is unique and leading the way for educational material for young people, teachers, youth, professionals and parents. It represents a new way of how we can learn together, grow, relate and communicate with each other. True2You offers girls and young women and boys and young men to NOT be dominated by ideals they must strive for and to NOT be dominated by beliefs that control our every day decisions and which we have normalized and often take for granted as we don’t know life to be in a different way. It empowers young people to build solidarity between each other and to identify their own and each other’s boundaries to live in a way that says clearly NO to abuse and violence and clearly YES to bodily integrity and honouring our bodies and ourselves by setting new standards.

How it started...

The True2You Youth Magazine is an initiative by the INDERA Foundation. The first edition on cyber sexual abuse was developed in the context of the EU projectI can choose to say no. Empowering youth, especially girls, to stand up against cyber sexual and gender-based violence in intimate partner relationships“ implemented by the Autonomous Women’s Center (AWC) in Beograd, Serbia; CESI – Centar Za Edukaciju Savjetovanje I Istrazivanje in Zagreb, Croatia; Nok A Nokert Egyutt Az Eroszak Ellen Egyesulet – NANE in Budapest, Hungary and Fundación INDERA in Barcelona, Spain.

The implementation of the project was marked by the global restrictions and lockdowns and the growing need for online support for young people who were forced to stay in their often abusive and violent family environments, spending their time online with rapidly growing rates of abusive and violence and often facing mental health issues and a general lack of wellbeing. Hence, in 2020 the INDERA Foundation with funds from the EU project “I can choose to say no” and the financial contribution from the German association GPL – Gesundheit Philosophie Leben brought the True2You Online Platform to life.

The multiple support for True2You is growing and expanding and in 2021/2022 the INDERA Foundation has received funds from the Health Department of the City of Barcelona and the Fundació Obra Social ‘La Caixa’ to develop more content and to be a consistent source of support on all things young people need for their wellbeing.

The True2You Team

This platform wouldn’t be what it is today without a huge team of volunteers who are consistently and relentlessly working behind the scenes to maintain this platform alive and a living platform of support, re-education and exchange for young people.

We have a team of volunteers who do all the invisible admin work, uploading articles, refining articles, attending to technical issues and assuring the overall flow of the platform.

Our multilingual support team of professionals answers all the incoming questions and gives weekly online support via zoom to all the young people who are looking for answers on how to be True2You in a world that has little to offer on that subject.
