The YCZ team collaboratively develops and facilitates initiatives and events at school each term to raise awareness of online bullying and keeping yourself safe.
We believe youth led pro-social events can be empowering and an effective way to get 'messages' out to youth. These could be events, social experiments, online campaigns.
Each initiative will have a student lead co-ordinator who works with their teams and is supported by the BNOF
Events could be linked with National/Global awareness days such as pink shirt day, youth week, international stand up to bullying day etc.
Here's some past initiatives:
PINK SHIRT DAY
Pink Shirt Day brings awareness to the global issue of bullying. Check out our videos from 2016 and 2017.
Other pro-social events
Check out some events run at Massey High School, West Auckland, 2016.
The Big Sit
The Big Sit addresses bullying through a mass peaceful sit-in - free hugs, jazz music, sausage sizzle, bake sale.
Speed Friend-shipping address stereotyping and labelling others.
