Schools and communities need spaces, in full view, where diverse young people are accepted, where we create a NEW normal that accurately reflects the diverse young people and adults in our schools, towns and communities. Do More is a virtual program designed to support school communities to prevent discrimination and othering of LGBTQ+ young people.
The lack of age appropriate LGBTQ+ education is not only affecting children's wellbeing,
it is impacting the very fabric of our school cultures.
We seek to normalize the experience of being an LGBTQ+ youth by supporting surrounding communities to become allies, and give them the tools and language of acceptance. The Do More Virtual Toolkit includes:
- Film & Episodic Screenings - Screenings of relevant content provide opportunities for students and teachers to pause, reflect, and learn.
- School wide student workshops - Do More interactive workshops and workbook for teachers and students teach the language of support and acceptance. Together we will create new customs, practices, and attitudes that use acceptance, empathy and kindness as our leading edge.
- Ongoing advocacy throughout the year - School wide projects that stand for this group of values and beliefs that engage school communities throughout the year and reconnect them to this journey.
This three-pronged approach seeks to take support out of the shadows and bring it into the mainstream of school culture, so that discrimination is the thing that is "othered" rather than diverse people.
