Founded just 12 years ago, MASK’s goal is to educate families on rapidly changing issues. Their mission is to engage and educate parents, children, and the community about issues facing youth and to empower children to make safe, healthy choices.
Carissa Seidl, family law attorney, partner at Jaburg Wilk, and a four-year MASK Women of Influence committee member, said “Their educational resources are phenomenal to support children from elementary school through young adulthood. Both their digital app as well as their magazine are extraordinary resources for both parents and children. They assist with difficult and critical issues such as safe dating, drugs, self-esteem and bullying. I love being able to share MASK the magazine with my clients and friends. I also love introducing my clients and friends to MASK and their programs.”
