Stand up, Speak out, Make a Difference is a peer education programme, developed by the Diversity and Cohesion Service which addresses controversial issues that young people identify as important to them. This work encourages young people to engage in challenging
issues such as human rights, prejudice, discrimination, extremism, hate crime and community tension and to use their voices in constructive ways.
Schools will be offered the opportunity to host both The Anne Frank: A History for Today exhibition as well as Remembering Srebrenica for a two week period during the autumn and spring term. These exhibitions will challenge the audience to find the contemporary
relevance of the Holocaust and the Srebrenica Genocide, allowing staff and students to see how racial and religious intolerance and hatred can begin and the tragic consequences when societies fail to take action. The learning that will take place will prepare
ambassadors for their peer education work.
We are inviting ten secondary schools once again to take part in the programme during the 2016-2017 academic year. In order to sustain the impact and quality of the programme, we are asking schools to make a contribution of £400 towards the delivery of
the project. In return, schools receive:
- CPD training days for staff and students to support the delivery of the Remembering Srebrenica and History for Today travelling exhibitions in school
- Hire of both travelling exhibitions in school, each over a two-week period
- Peer education training for selected students, to prepare them to cascade knowledge and activities within school and to a partner school, in lessons / assemblies
- Ambassador training for students to prepare them for their guiding role during The Anne Frank + (YOU!} exhibition
- Two scheduled days for student ambassadors to guide during the AFU exhibition
- Awards event for students and staff to showcase the hard work and progress made during the programme
Please note, we can only accommodate ten schools on the programme over the year and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
