One of the things that attracted me to Hello Cool World was the commitment to shared decision making and direction in making a video.  Knowing the history of our group and the stories we have to share would be treated with utmost respect and care meant a great deal.  Safety in sharing intimate details of our lives to help other Nations is paramount."

I've worked with many social and development sector communications agencies over the years in my various roles at CNN, WHO and other organizations, but Hello Cool World is easily one of the very best anywhere in the world. Strategic, creative, with sound M&E and demonstrated ROI, this team does amazing work — consistently."

I had the pleasure of working with Jada and Kat on the "Star In Your Own Stories" project. This project combined sexual health education with hands-on filmmaking experience for youth in several First Nations communities. Jada facilitated culturally safe, strength-based health education sessions, and helped youth generate a script for an educational video. Kat and her team coached the youth as they planned, filmed and starred in the videos. Kat and Jada were knowledgeable, respectful, and easy for young people to connect with, and the videos from these projects are very popular with youth in many communities.

Strong Path was a great experience for our youth to feel empowered to be creative and expressive in a new medium while learning the important protective factors of healthy sexuality.
