iveBeenThere is a web-based mobile app designed to support middle school students in their transition to high school. Through short video clips, older teen mentors offer advice, information and personal stories about relevant social and academic issues such as sexuality, drugs, race, peer pressure, and the high school academic transition. The unique combination of mentors, video and the mobile platform allows users to consider multiple views on an issue, identity with mentor role models, and get accurate information in a safe and confidential space when they need it.
