Help With The Touch Of A Button—Teenpreneurs Create Crucial App

The people in a teen’s inner circle are often the best resource when a young person is struggling. Knowing how to reach out is a crucial first step. Hannah Lucas is a 15-year-old making a major impact with an app that allows users to ask for help with the touch of a button. Co-created with her 13-year-old brother, Charlie, the notOK app automatically sends a GPS location to up to five pre-selected contacts along with a text message that reads: Hey, I’m not OK. Please call me, text me, or come find me.
