The “Uniquely You” Campaign-Stand Up and Stop Bullying
No one has the right to make you feel different. Working together each one can make a difference.
Inspire to make a difference by working in the following areas:
- Bullying: Who bullies and why? Explore cause and effect and stand up to end bullying.
- Education: As a tutor/mentor we can make a difference in school drop-out.
- The National Facts about Drugs: Trends in Teen Drug and Alcohol use. Peer pressure or pattern in a family?
Topics of Concern
Who bullies and why? Effects of being bullied; victimized and prevention.
Self – Worth
Why do we see a rise in the diagnosis of depression in preteens and teens, self-harm (cutting, suicide), eating disorders. Know your self-worth.
Overcoming the downfalls that comes along with being a teenager. Stepping up and realizing we have responsibilities as we are the leaders of tomorrow.
