The Young Changemaker team delivers 2 in-person anti-racist bullying training days across the UK, in collaboration with Not So Micro.
To mark Black History Month, the Young Changemaker team worked in collaboration with Not So Micro to deliver two in-person anti-racist bullying training days. The anti-racist bullying training educates young people on how to understand, recognise and respond to racist bullying behaviour and strives to build their confidence in supporting their peers who have faced anti-racist bullying.
From completing the training, we aim for students to achieve the following aims:
Over the course of two training events, we engaged 80 students across six schools in London and Manchester. When asked what the students want to take forward following the training, feedback included:
“I want to help make a difference in society”.
“Always be there for people who are insecure, scared, or not confident about their race, ethnicity or identity”.
“Help others and be a better upstander”.
“The training has taught me I need to check in more with my friends and has made me more aware.”
“I love how the facilitators teach”
“I feel like I learnt words to describe stuff that I have experienced in the past”
To see what the schools got up to, check out the video from the training below.
A huge thank you to our host schools Mill Hill County High School in London and Co-op Academy Belle Vue in Manchester and the attending schools ICS London, Lowry Academy, Wilmslow High School, and Eden Girls Leadership Academy.
The Diana Award are privileged to be invited to the ‘My Life My Say’ Next Gen conference on the 25th November. We will join around 500 young people and a series of renowned speakers from the world of activism for an exciting day that will explore youth-led solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing society.
Five young people share their thoughts and feelings about bullying in their own words, including one of our very own Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
Due to the ongoing support of our incredible corporate partners, The Diana Award were able to expand our anti-bullying efforts across 2023. This Anti-Bullying Week, we wanted to spotlight a few partners, highlighting how they have helped The Diana Award stand up to bullying across the UK.
