Teen creates new "Sit with us" app for bullied teens

Posted: Updated:

Remember the 2004 movie "Mean Girls" where the phrase "you can't sit with us" became extremely popular?

One teen is helping bring a little more kindness into schools.  Natalie Hampton, a 16-year-old student, created Sit With Us, a free app that helps foster a more welcoming school community by helping kids find a place to sit during lunchtime.

According to the app description, kids can use the lunch-planning app by signing in via email or Facebook and connecting with fellow students. Students can either sign up to become a Sit With Us Ambassador, who host open lunches for anyone to join, or add lunches to the app and invite friends to join. There’s also a chat feature that allows for lunches to be better coordinated.
