Stand Up Speak Out is an online life skills programme designed to enable young people to deal with hate speech and equip them with skills to counter intimidating behavior in schools, outside of schools, and online. Through interactive sessions, young people will discuss and express themselves on different scenarios while outlining other solutions to minimize and stop hate speech.
There are 2 Stand Up Speak Out programmes:
One targets young people in Year7 & 8,
while another targets young people in Year 9 & 10.
I will learn to:
- Understand what hate speech is and be able to distinguish different types of intimidation
- Identify and discuss the actions of the perpetrator’s behaviour
- Outline different skills needed to help victims and by-standers to stand up and speak out
- Become aware of the different professionals that can help and support me.
