Subtle Activism

One of the biggest elements of InvisiYouth Charity’s platform and mission is to use activism, the spotlight we create, to establish the true "medically adult-ish™" voice, and the education on changes that need to be made to improve the daily life experience.

 We use three main paths to make advocacy our focal point: social media activism campaigns/partnerships, speaking engagements, and our international community programs. Social media expands our reach and interaction with our "medically adult-ish™"youth, support networks and nonprofits around the world so more young people can find our community. Through our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, InvisiYouth has a global reach, and works not just with teens/young adults from other countries, both also other organizations and nonprofits that are specialized in different illnesses and mental health causes. With social media being a strong aspect of the teen/young adult lifestyle, InvisiYouth Charity joins that world and uses positive commentary to make an impact in their lives. Our interactive activism campaigns use the flare of our "medically adult-ish™" demographic while also raising awareness, funds and conversations about supporting this community. Follow our Instagram for campaigns like, InvisiYouth's Give Back Grid, to see more.

Our community programs are all international, reaching out EIGHT COUNTRIES! We started with our Global BrandLeaders Program. This leadership program was virtually led so we were able to work with young people from across the chronic illness/disability/mental health spectrum and in seven countries. It furthered InvisiYouth’s mission into their neighborhoods, to broaden awareness and access to supportive InvisiYouth "medically adult-ish™" resources and programs that can be provided for our growing international "medically adult-ish™" network, and provide a leadership opportunity of apprenticeship for many young adults in the nonprofit sector to excel their philanthropic endeavors.

As of 2022, InvisiYouth has placed the GBL Program on hiatus as we launched our new two-tiered volunteer program, InvisiYouth's Freestyle Volunteers. This flexible volunteer program allows anyone to sign up for our email listing that'll give all our available volunteer projects and tasks, and you can sign up as you're available and feeling well. Plus, our two divisions, the "MEDICALLY ADULT-ISH™" DIVISION and the HEALTHCARE STUDENTS AND WORKERS DIVISION let's our population and those that support them on the front lines both work simultaneously to assist young people to have access to resources and activism to thrive with any health struggles. We will define all activism projects and resources as 'subtle activism' meaning InvisiYouth will weld soft power and allow you to make small waves of change through merchandise, activism tools and campaigns that will lead with curiosity. 

Our final form of activism in the form of public speaking and virtual speaking programs. Through a blended platform of educational and motivational speaking, InvisiYouth Charity’s mission of assisting the  teeniatrics® and "medically adult-ish™" populations we work for to navigate their daily lives with chronic illness/disability is while sharing ways to thrive and achieve success/joy in their daily life. Our founder Dominique Viel uses her over decade of experience as a patient advocate on national grant research committees, and guest speaker in children’s hospitals and schools to tailor the InvisiYouth message for various audiences, from high school and university students, to charity and other organizations' events, to medical schools, nursing schools, and PT programs.
