BE THE DIFFERENCE
The award winning Be The Difference has been impacting thousands of students each school year since 2002. Two primary goals are shared with students at the outset of the day: (1) To know the other students in the room (up to 250!) much better than you do now; and (2) To allow the other students to know you much better than they currently do.
At Changepoint, we believe that ignorance is a prime root cause contributing to negative attitudes, behaviors and interactions. With Be The Difference, your students will be taught skills to help them move past ignorance to knowing others and allowing themselves to be known ~ to discover the story behind every face.
Our unique activities break down stereotypical barriers between students by enlightening them to the life stories of their classmates, resulting in inclusion and respect. Our program engages students to surface pain and adversity in their lives, and how to react to those situations positively. We provide the opportunity for conflict resolution and teach skills on giving affirmation.
This radically intense experience happens within our goal number one of having a great time! Your students and staff will have a blast! Your students will be so engaged; they will forget the time and the fact that they are learning! Our experienced facilitators have decades of experience working with students. They will provide incredibly honest and personal life examples into each presentation leaving your students in riveted attention. Even your most difficult students will relate to the real-life stories of our presenters.
We are all about connections! Once we receive your submission we will set up a call to discuss your needs and your programming options.
