Sticks 'n' Stones
In a collaboration with Tokomairiro High School, South Otago High School and Queen’s High School, our Year 9-11 students had the opportunity to participate in a Sticks ‘n’ Stones Advocate Training Workshop.
The Advocates programme empowers a collaborative community of young people from High Schools and Colleges around the country who are mobilised and supported online to create space for everyone to be themselves.
This training combines full-day in-person Activator workshops with Power Up modules delivered through an online platform; monthly webinars and opportunities to share ideas and collaborate in person through regular meetings and online alongside advocates NZ wide.
The intended outcomes are to:
~ Provide opportunities for young people to develop confidence and skills to be part of positively impacting their own social environments.
~ Connect young people that care about creating space for all of us to be ourselves.
~ Challenge the belief that creating change needs traditional leaders and setting up your own charity or social enterprise.
