Opportunities for Change

When young people work together to develop their own culture of positive relationships it helps eliminate the occurrence and acceptance of bullying and other anti-social behaviours. You hold the key to continuing to build, and maintaining a culture of pride, acceptance and service in your community.

 

Young people are the most powerful agents of change.

 

You have the most wisdom about how the social dynamics of your schools/communities work and you have the most leverage with your peers when it comes to encouraging pro-social behaviours. This will mean continuing to find ways of working together and staying together. These are some proven suggestions for how you can “be the change”.

 

Remember that no two schools or communities are exactly the same so we encourage you to set goals and create projects that meet your specific needs - JUST ASK.

Follow-Up Suggestions:

  • Meet regularly as a group, commit to specific roles your group will need and take turns completing these.
  • Have an agenda for each meeting and insure that you achieve this each time.
  • Start, finish, run meetings following ideals in terms of starting with and ending with an activity or hug (sounds a bit UGH eh but a 20 second hug releases the bonding hormone and neurotransmitter OXYTOCIN, which is nature’s antidepressant and antianxiety - BOOM).
  • Set dates and promote activities and events.

We encourage you to use social media in a positive way to share your event's pictures and testimonials. You can do this at ‘facebook.com/bethechangenz’ or your schools own Facebook page or website.  It is vital though that someone takes charge on monitoring all posts and comments.
