Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

As the Season for Nonviolence Task Force Leader in my local community I was approached by our Provincial Ministry of Education for ideas to support a new B.C. Anti bullying website. I quickly realized this was a band aid solution that continued to label, focus and emphasis the problem versus long term education and demystification of the term "bully". The focus now is reversed and the "bully" is being "bullied" by the strong need to end this behaviour. The emphasis is still on wrongdoing and a need for justice. The current attention to "bullying" is the 1st step of the recognition phase; restorative justice is 2nd towards forgiveness. What is addressing the habitual patterns creating the bully and how do we focus upon the models creating the pattern for our "new" students culturally?

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Empathy Culture through long term character development using value based education, practice, activities & awareness campaigns that include school subjects. Educators develop skills, teach & model to demonstrate relationship behaviour. Skill building levels with intro., intermediate and advanced together with calendars; of Values, Awareness Campaigns & Focus Dialogue. Objectives: 1. Understanding & skill to speak honestly & to listen so each voice is heard without interruption, competition or fixing. 2. To "connect" to the essence of what is behind words & behaviours for spontaneous resolutions. 3. To eliminate power over and power under in relationships through training to develop understanding and abilities of identifying met and unmet needs easily. 4. Introducing values based agreements to support conflicts & resolution. A shift from punitive to relationship building in education solidly structured for supporting patterns and habits of becoming self aware & responsible.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Creating a school culture with a 3 to 5 year program of values integrated into the school curriculum for learning through discussion, experience and community while supporting and training the person who has the highest influence on a child’s ability to learn and character development – their teacher. The teacher is at the center of the educational experience and the heart of the school. If the teacher is supported the child learns. This program therefore has two steams of introduction. One is creating the culture and the second is training. The culture is; seasonal awareness campaigns for community and expanded value based consciousness, social media integrated for connection, motivation and inspired learning, intentional focused dialogue groups based upon current school environment and needs, value focused classroom dialogues, in classroom third siding mediation station and introducing parent only activities. The education is development of; basic language linguistics and skills, listening skills, empathy and self empathy skills, mediation based upon mutual listening and expressing with third sider training. This healthy school programs will be designed to focus on positive change by creating an environment that is learning how to be in relationships that are working towards understanding and meeting everyone’s needs equally and in the cases of not meeting a need – understanding why. This program is not focusing on a negative or fixing a negative it is about developing the change through modelling and educating change.

There are no limits to the marketplace for these programs. This is a valuable tool for our educational systems from pre-school through colleges & universities. It includes teaching institutions for teaching any child related career focus, families, boys & girl clubs, organizations and activity related. This would benefit general community skill development classes, our health care, legal systems, government and church organization. These programs compliment any program that is currently being offered as it fills in the by teaching the basic steps that are missing on how to achieve what is needed for success of these programs. For example, roots of empathy - this is the foundation and basic language that compliments the consciousness. Also it is integrative and designed for ease.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The contribution to date has been to connect with our local provincial schools with regards to an awareness campaign for Peace and Nonviolence. It began with a petition for nonviolence training in our B.C. schools and grew on the recommendations of the our Premiers office. Feedback and inquiries for the Ministry of Educaitons, School Administration and Teachers inspired these concepts.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

This program is a commitment to build an empathy based consciousness in schools. Business integation begins with promo, marketing, conferences & training the trainers. To developing strong, interactive, updated web presence. In the 2nd added training, support, learning, practice into schools & continued promotion. The 3rd, agenda of conferences, training & support. In schools, intro, principals school wide & empathy community dev. 2nd year integrating into subjects as reference points supporting child learning & understanding. 3rd, marrying relationships & behaviours, advanced skills. Understanding & learning tools impact the behaviours & in conflicts for resolution add trust, safety & support. Conflict is relationship. The impact will be the quality of the relationships.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The barriers will be the to the success of this project will be competition, acceptance and time constraints for integration and learning techniques. These concepts go beyond the experience of this culture of educators (in general terms) and the barrier will be their resistance that will involve personal strategies to overcome for fuller participation. The program is designed for creating a community culture of learning and this may include participants not involved for the right reasons therefore blocked or blocking. The needs of many may not have been met that may develop into personal barriers of acceptance at a perceived added work load. To meet all of these and more, the practice of empathy and honest expression will be key to resolving these issues that arise.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

My Aha moment came when I began connecting with educators about the Season for Nonviolence in my province. A Dean of Education contacted me and asked how to include these concepts into the training curriculum for students teacher education. I recognized in that moment that it began with the teachers and that as a society we need to change what they are learning and sharing with our children. Since our province is in conflict with teachers and this year has been a year of teachers pulling out of activities, not reporting marks for the parents and being legislated back to work. These relationships are strained therefore the interaction with the students would reflect this strain. Strain, no gain! Health of our learning community begins with the person in the centre and in schools the teachers are in the centre. If they can experience being heard, empathy and gain the tools they need to express honestly and understand others more clearly our children will benefit with more value.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The standards of educational development are rapidly declining in the United States. The U.S. ranks 14th out of 34 OECD countries for reading skills, 17th for science, and 25th for mathematics. Material retention and comprehension have continued to drop, while the dropout rate continues to increase exponentially over the years. Poor time management and lack of true mentorship are two of the problems that must be resolved if we are to continue develop our children into the future leaders of tomorrow. Fortunately, Adam and our platform have the potential to make a significant impact on education and save our children.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We believe technology is the answer to educational reform. Therefore, we created Adam, artificial intelligence that will serve as a true student mentor. Adam is capable of intelligent perception and behavior. The AI is designed to maximize a student’s day and eliminate procrastination. He is fully aware of his users schedule and speaks directly to the student alerting them of upcoming classes, homework assignments, tests, and/or other academic and non-academic related events. Adam is even capable of intelligent reasoning, which allows him to persuade students to make good decisions concerning school. Adam learns over time, which helps him effectively guide students through their academic careers. He serves as the catalyst to every student’s educational development, which is critically important when developing real-world problem solvers.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

ADAM works and thinks independently and is constantly learning and analyzing the user it serves. By continuously observing and studying the user, Adam analyzes every possible situation at hand, intelligently sorts through each possibility, and provides the optimal solution best suited to meet the needs of that user. For example, a student may input that he/she has an exam approaching within the next week. Adam will take all information pertinent to this exam and ensure that the student has ample time to prepare. Adam reminds the student sporadically to study, up until the day of the exam, and may also suggest different methods the student could use to prepare for the exam. These methods could consist of outlines, flashcards, or any other study method that ADAM feels is appropriate for the type of exam the student is preparing for. ADAM is fully aware of the student’s entire schedule; therefore, he will find the perfect study time for the student as to avoid any schedule conflicts with any other tasks. ADAM is extremely efficient and dedicated towards empowering students with knowledge evidenced by increased performance in academics, which lead to future leaders.

ArcDNA has two major competitors in the educational software industry and two minor competitors. Blackboard, a major competitor, is a leading provider of enterprise educational software and services to the education industry. iStudiez Pro, also a major competitor, is the leading provider for personal education software. OneSchool and inClass are the two minor competitors, all of which are companies that supply products to our specific target market, K-12 students, college students and/or universities. All ArcDNA products have one common goal and that is to help students achieve success far beyond the limitations and practices of the current educational model. The artificial intelligence we developed is has far more advanced functionality than the mobile applications our competitors offer.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

ADAM in its current form is able to perceive, reason, and learn. As a result is able to help students prioritize their schedule including class schedule, work schedule, and other academic and non-academic related events. ADAM is also able to keep students aware of upcoming tests and assignments, and also encourages them to study. A student can also request ADAM to build an entire study schedule, and ADAM will analyze the student’s life and instantly build it. ADAM is also able to speak directly with his user and provide responses to menial tasks, such as finding locations and other information. Thus far, ADAM has been very influential toward the academic progression of the students who currently have access to this level of technology.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Over the next three years we anticipate ADAM making a significant impact in education through evidence of increased academic performance. We desire to incorporate ADAM into our current and future products, which will be accessible for student use on various electronic devices, including smart-phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers of all platforms. We believe providing every student with our next generation A.I will allow students to have that dedicated mentor and friend who devotes itself to maximizing the student’s potential. This gives us confidence in knowing that no student will be left behind and no student will ever feel alone.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Unfortunately, with every great innovation the development team is always faced with challenges and hardships that can potentially hinder the success of the project. The primary barrier that will hinder our project’s success is funding. Funding is critical for research, and research is the foundation that led to ADAM A.I. If we can continue research, we can continue to develop ADAM to make him become smarter and more useful to students. To overcome this financial issue we will continue to adamantly look into grants, seed money, and competitions such as this one

At ArcDNA, we all come from various walks of life and are truly grateful to be blessed with the opportunity to make an impact in education. We each maintain relatively decent jobs and are fortunate enough to attend college. Two of the founders, Gregory Rogers and Darius Moore, are both seniors pursuing bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering and Information Technology, respectively. The two remaining founders, Angel Henderson, is pursuing a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Engineering. While, Raqwon Perryman is a recent graduate holding a degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. However, we each understand we would not be in the positions we are in had it not been for influential people guiding us along the way, ranging from our parents, to professors, to community leaders. We earnestly believe that mentors are a critical aspect of every student’s life as they mature through life and academics. So our goal was to give every student access to their own mentor.

Crescimento (seu piloto está em andamento e começa a se expandir)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Em execução entre 1 e 5 anos

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The lack of empathy and awareness that exists in society surrounding mental illness and suicide in youth culture, as well as the difficulty in peer-to-peer communication and support around these issues.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We have an online forum that allows youth to expand their artistic (musical, written, artistic) expression and have provided a framework for empathetic response to their posts. Youth also have forums to express their emotions concerning stress, parental difficulties, and mental health, and are provided with peer responses that are moderated by an adult team. Youth in the Southern Ontario area gather quarter-annually to come together as a group and interact in person, putting their listening and responding skills into practice. The founder of the organization has a well-developed YouTube channel that uses videos to discuss youth issues and how to be understanding and empathetic those struggling with these issues and of themselves. Another action to encourage empathetic behaviour is the creation of our book, “Alone Together: Out of the Shadows”. This book is a compilation of youth experiences and creative expression that provides readers with the understanding they are not alone.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Youth in society today feel pressured from many avenues. Pressure to be more mature, pressure to grow up, pressure to fit into norms, pressure to meet standards set by people who don’t know their struggles. They aren’t listened to, they don’t have avenues to get support, and they don’t have models to follow when peers need guidance or a listening ear. By providing a ‘haven’ where youth can gather, anonymously or without anonymity, Compassion and Peace provides empathy and models of empathetic behaviour. These youth then take the compassion and empathy they have been shown, and shown themselves, and apply it to school and life. For example, a youth who has been active in the forums and dealt with self-harm issues, who previously felt alone and without compassion, recently observed a girl (who was not a friend or classmate) self-harming. With the experiences she has had through Compassion and Peace she was able to approach the student and spend the next 2 hours just listening and empathizing with her, until they reached a place where the student was ready to accept help.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Within the field of supporting youth, it’s hard to think of others as competitors. In the area of our work, there is the Canadian Mental Health Association, the Halton Suicide Prevention Coalition, the suicide prevention agency of Hamilton, and ‘mindyourmind.ca’. What differentiates us is that we work on a youth-to-youth format that encourages peer interaction rather than adult directed solution. Instead of a model that follows regimented approaches, we work through emotion, encourage raw expression, and educate on how to react to such expressions and harness the energy of the emotions. We face challenges in partnering due to the grandiosity of organizations; often getting tasks approved takes communication through many channels, and we are stalemated until 'red tape' is cleared.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Through our youth gatherings we have seen upwards of a 100 youth pass through our doors. These youth have created close relationships between one another, and they have returned to us time after time to mentor new members of the group. One founder, Blake Bliss, has a YouTube channel related to the organizations work and it has now cleared 50, 000 subscribers. Our online forums are full of discussion, from youth around the world, a large number from the USA. We have sponsored specific members of the group who are in placed housing with travel funds, food and school supplies in order to assist them in completing their studies and attending our events. We monitor the youth involved in all our programs and watch them change and grow, from individuals who feel alone and without support, to a network of relationships that provide empathy and encouragement.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Our impact is projected to grown in terms of number of participants, geographical spread, and depth and range of programs. We desire to create a broader network of youth, working more directly within schools. We want to continue our system of mentorship and strengthen the skills and tools that youth who work with us gain. We aim to continue to increase our numbers and rate of growth on our forums and attendance to our gatherings. We want to move beyond our base of North American attendants using our online forums. We will continue impacting the lives of marginalized youth: whether they feel alone due to life circumstances, mental illness, or simply not fitting in with the crowd.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The general stigma around mental illness makes it difficult to have open conversations with schools. Many are interested in discussions of empathy but are hesitant to talk about suicide and mental illness openly. There is a general belief that such matters should be left to professionals and that peers have no ability to assist in the situation.

We believe that youth are makers of their own destiny and can be empowered to assist one another. We plan on working with politicians and superintendants to implement structures that allow youth to feel empowered and able to hold discussions with one another. Youth will be guided to unlock their positive support skills, developing the empathy and compassion we are all capable of.

Our organization was created from a family of "Aha!" moments. After a number of close friends, who the Bliss family had worked to show limitless compassion and empathy too, committed suicide, the Bliss family reflected and concluded that youth needed to know there are others feeling equally alone. Their son, Blake, felt there was a lack of peer-to-peer resources for him to access and that he needed to be a part of the solution, not the problem that society saw his deep depression as. The family reasoned that if youth came together, they could share their experiences and use their "aloneness" to make a positive impact.The online forum was created. Una Bliss was so moved by the youth discussion on the online forum, she compiled a book of their experiences. The publication of this book and the events prior to it prompted the proper formation of CAPAOC.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

There is a two-fold crisis in modern Pakistani society which we have targeted:
1) The deplorable state of public education which encourages rote-learning as opposed to critical thinking. Students from this system absorb the in-built prejudices and assumptions of the curriculum and are deprived of the tools required to question these accounts and reach their own conclusions. Unfortunately, this public school system contributes greatly to the intolerance and narrow mindedness in society.
2) The vast, and increasing, polarization between the affluent and the less privileged sections of society. The former has had the privilege of private schooling and a more sound education but remains aloof from the vast majority of people in the country.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

In order to bridge this gap and distribute more evenly the gains of private education, Rabtt encourages university students from elite institutions to serve as instructors or mentors for different subjects at public schools for the duration of a summer camp. The purpose is to facilitate the learning process through building basic concepts, encouraging questions, interactive discussions, critically analyzing their environment and providing alternative sources of information and versions of subject matter. Aside from academics, it would also allow exposure to other creative forms of expression and activities like art, drama, sport and public speaking which are vital facets of a holistic education. The volunteers benefit equally from this experience – empathy can only come about through the facilitation of relations. Rabtt seeks to build these relations and help each group learn from the other.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The Rabtt summer camp creates an environment where the stratified sections of society can interact in a space conducive to learning, and the opportunity to explore, question, analyze and express. The opportunity to interact allows several stereotypes and false generalizations to be dispelled. In cases where the opinions of the students and the mentors differ due to difference in exposure, the classes become an opportunity for each to justify himself. Classes are largely discussion or activity based, which makes a lot of room for dialogue.
The students are able to shed the taboo attached to several issues through their curriculum. By listening to ideas from a different strata of society, different cultures or religions, different professions they are able to humanize characters otherwise painted devious and ‘bad’ by everyday societal dogma. The instructors on their part are able to re-shape their own imaginations of the students. Watching the students live up to the challenging and rigorous curriculum and listening to them express their ideas allows them to dispel the opinion so often held, that public school students are somehow less capable than the privileged.

We believe currently Teach for Pakistan, The Citizen Archive & The Citizen Foundation are the organizations whose work is indirectly related to us. Unlike their operations which include focusing on one subject or initiating a complete new school, we are currently focusing on fulfilling our aims through camps and connecting the volunteers with students. In future, in case they decide to focus on this aspect, then they do pose a greater threat to us since they are much more established, organized and experienced in this field.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

One of the Public Speaking Instructors at Rabtt was quite glad to tell us that he has written his college essay on a person that inspired him, on one of his students at the summer camp. Similarly, a student once mused in an early-morning Philosophy class how up until then, they had only been cramming, but for the first time they were using their heads to actually think. The children surprised Instructors as they maturely and objectively discussed LGBT rights in class, and debated minority rights on stage.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

In the given time span we would widen our reach to private sector as well. Retreats would hold for those private scector which would help us in achieving self sustainability as well. Furthermore, the camps would be planned and conducted on regular basis. We would also like to plan and organize a program in which we get to meet those children on weekly basis and conducting our classes in order to keep the efforts active and more productive. These weekly classes would aid our efforts for their development.

Rabtt is currently in process of achieving self sustainability in terms of finances, thus till it is achieved it remains an obstacle for organization. Plus, the continuous availability of quality volunteers is another issue as well since they tend to work on project-to-project basis. Rabtt plans to overcome these barriers through proper planning and positioning strategies.

Aneeq, a LUMS graduate had developed a keen interest in the concept of ‘identity’ and its particular roots in the officially defined curriculum in Pakistan. Imran, also a LUMS graduate had taught at the National Outreach Program’s training program for the aspiring LUMS students from all over Pakistan. Rather than spending a few days ‘out there’ as two individuals, a platform was envisioned which would last longer than themselves; where the nation’s best educated will come together to reach out to underprivileged students. Education was to serve as the bridge – to connect, to create the rabtt. The co-founders reached out to everyone who would listen and took in feedback on their ideas and got a lot of support from friends and gradually Rabtt had a plan for its pilot summer camp.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In discussions with educators visiting the Kidsbridge Tolerance Museum, teachers have expressly stated that they have noticed recent changes in the core values & ethics of their elementary/middle school students. Teachers indicate that this new generation is driven by materialism and an increasing addiction to technology – leading to declines in interpersonal skills and a lack of empathy for fellow classmates. While by no means a scientific study, it is an accurate and sad commentary on the state of youth that will become America's future leaders -- and is worrisome.

We ALL need to work harder to change this alarming trend of devaluing the feelings and lives of others. Kids need to be empowered to Stand Up and Speak out! Bystanders need to be converted into UPstanders and changemakers!

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

KIDSBRIDGE is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing imaginative, hands-on programs focusing on: anti-bullying and anti-cyberbullying; tolerance; diversity appreciation and respect for all persons; victim empowerment and positive self-esteem; conflict resolution and empathy; sensitivity to persons with disabilities; respect for LGBT persons and grassroots youth activism. Since 1996, Kidsbridge has sought to fill the large voids that exist in the learning of life skills, character education and diversity appreciation with programs featuring knowledge, aspiration and empowerment. The jewel in the Kidsbridge crown is the Kidsbridge Tolerance Museum – the only youth-oriented tolerance museum in the U.S. and generously housed on campus at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) in Ewing. Each year more than 2,000 students and educators visit the Museum, learning strategies to better deal with the challenging character education and diversity appreciation issues facing today’s youth.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

A four-hour visit to the Kidsbridge Tolerance Museum is much more than a field trip; it is a transformational experience. The success of this program is confirmed because of the “EVIDENCE-BASED” statistics that support significant attitudinal improvement in: 1) empathy, 2) stereotype knowledge and 3) aspiration to college after just a single museum trip.

Each year more than 2,000 students and educators visit the Museum, learning strategies to better deal with the challenging character education and diversity appreciation issues facing today’s youth. The Museum includes components of the exhibit “Face to Face: Dealing with Prejudice and Discrimination,” created by the Chicago Children’s Museum and purchased by Kidsbridge in 2006.

In an open and interactive environment (also known as a learning lab), TCNJ students and professors, along with volunteer retired educators from the local community, meaningfully interact in small group discussions with visiting elementary and middle school students and educators. To date, more than 9,300 youth have visited the Museum. Kidsbridge’s main focus is to present the learning of life skills, character education, empathy and diversity appreciation with knowledge, aspiration, inspiration and empowerment to as many youth and educators as possible. Kidsbridge wants to equip kids and energize educators so they are better prepared to deal with negatives like bullying, cyberbullying, stereotyping and name-calling -- as well as positives like victim empowerment, self-esteem and UPstander (not bystander) behavior when they return to school.

Other nonprofits and commercial businesses present anti-bullying programs, but most are "finger-wagging assemblies" that aren’t evidence-based. Kidsbridge has a differential advantage because our work is built on a platform of empathy and self-esteem activities. Competitors don't exist; Kidsbridge is the only youth-oriented museum focusing on tolerance, empathy, self-esteem and diversity appreciation in the U.S. In a unique partnership with TCNJ, Education & Psychology professors and college students lead small group discussions for visiting students and educators. Every child is encouraged to speak and listen. Kidsbridge plans to create videos and concomitant lesson plans that can be shared, so the “Kidsbridge Tolerance Museum Experience” can be promulgated to schools across the country.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Analyzed survey data indicate that youth show statistically significant improvements in the areas of empathy, stereotype knowledge, and aspiration to college after a single Museum session. This data is supported by the positive and enthusiastic feedback of visiting teachers, guidance counselors and parents who see their kids positively respond to what is being presented; by the supportive commentary of college professors, college students and retired educator volunteers who interact with the kids to broaden their shared experiences in a safe environment; and, most importantly, by the epiphanies and personal reflections of the kids who have been forever impacted by the program. There is nothing more gratifying than witnessing an “Aha!” moment -- when a youth sees he doesn’t need to take what the bully is dishing out and can stand up for himself...or now understands that actions can significantly impact on a classmate’s happiness or sadness...or that one person "can make a difference."

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Kidsbridge plans to reach as many youth as possible with its message to promote tolerance and its mission of inclusion. We will continue to solicit funding to bring underserved kids to the Museum, but in order to reach more students, Kidsbridge will be scripting, filming, and editing “Kidsbridge Shorts,” a new series of short videos focusing on various life skills areas – the first of which are designed to help educators better address bullying and cyberbullying. As integral parts of kits to be used by teachers in the classroom, kits will also include lesson plans, talking points and additional reference materials – all categorized by topic. By capturing targeted messages and lessons on film, Kidsbridge can reach thousands more students and teachers when a Museum trip can't take place.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Not being in the business of producing videos, Kidsbridge will need to find funding and partner with local, dedicated professionals to script, cast, film, edit and finalize each video – as well as to produce the concomitant lesson plans, talking points and additional reference materials for each. The critical problems of bullying and cyberbullying are the subjects of the first two films in the series, and the lessons learned during their creation and production will be a driving factor regarding the plans and execution of the rest of the “Kidsbridge Shorts” series. Obstacles will be overcome by asking good questions and soliciting feedback and guidance by experienced individuals that have been through this process before. You never know what you don't know, but you can ask good questions.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

Ten years ago in a NJ classroom, Kidsbridge E.D. Lynne Azarchi witnessed a teacher trying to get her students to grasp a concept, but it wasn't working. "I realized that wagging your finger at kids and telling them 'you should do X in this situation' is a waste of time. Kids don’t really learn and they'll 'tune you out.' Research says that to learn pro-social skills effectively, you must first generate empathy. Upon a foundation of empathy and improved self-esteem, kids can learn how to: advocate and protect themselves; be UPstanders; go beyond community service to make a difference; be a changemaker creating a domino effect so others will follow. Educators must be consistent in approach and results must be evidence-based, otherwise you are playing at teaching social skills. Make presentations interactive and engaging! Also, student-driven change is most effective. How wonderful our world if we could teach our future generation to be more empathetic, action-oriented and empowered!"

The Cotabato Province has been besieged for years by terrorism, armed conflicts, natural disasters which often result to massive evacuation and displacement of many civilians, either Muslims, Indigenous Peoples or Christians.
The conflicts do not only damage properties but more significantly lives. No one is excused from the destructive hands of conflict.
Consequently, the children’s education is also disrupted by the conflicts waged in the area. These grave and harsh realities made the children fully disadvantaged and deprived of their rights to be protected, free, and be educated

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

For the past decade, pressures to focus solely on improving test scores has left little time for social-emotional learning programs in most U.S. public school curricula. Programs that are in use are costly, rely heavily on slogans, contests, one-time workshops, theme weeks, and web-based learning rather than real-life skill-building or practice. The most popular program focuses on teaching what constitutes good behavior rather than on developing the skills (like empathy) that lead to them. In 2010, Education Week cited results from the largest federal study showing that such character education programs had little to no effect on improving student behavior. Schools need programs that teach empathy as a skill, provide real-life practice over time, and improve student behavior.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The Compassionate Campus program uses student-to-student interactions, with coaching from teachers, in real-life situations to hone students’ empathy skills over the course of each school year.

This program pairs upper grade mentors (5th-8th) with lower grade buddies (1st-4th) for bi-weekly meetings wherein they connect with each other, connect to their campus, and weave the social fabric of community. Students jointly participate in exercises like:

• Taking the temperature of social well-being
• Addressing bigger issues of how we care for and treat each other
• Holding listening circles to help younger students with any social and emotional difficulties they might be facing.

These peer-mentor relationships develop into safe forums for children to speak their truth and discover new perspectives towards their challenges. Empathy grows as the students learn to inquire without judgment and to listen to each other, without a rush to find a solution, simply to understand.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

At the beginning of the school year, 8th graders are paired with 4th graders, 7th graders with 3rd graders, 6th graders with 2nd graders, and 5th with 1st graders to mentor. These mentor assignments last until the end of school year - the relationship can last a lifetime.

Every other Wednesday throughout the year, the older children have a classroom civics lesson which includes coaching on a particular social-emotional skill, beginning with listening for understanding.

Afterwards, the students in grades 1-8 attend an assembly together to interactively explore a school-wide, social challenge.

Lastly, each mentor and buddy spend 30 minutes with each other engaging in conversations of their choice. For particularly challenging situations, mentors will form listening circles with other mentor-buddy pairs to help all gain a better understanding of each others perspective.

Compassionate Campus uses the power of student-to-student interactions in getting children to open up to one another to uncover information that would not otherwise be told to an adult.

The program also uses the power of mentorship to spark an inner motivation for children to call up the best in themselves for the service of others. As these mentors focus on modelling empathy for their younger buddies, they begin to internalize the skill and begin to be more empathetic with their same age peers. As the younger buddies become the older mentors, they carry forward the lessons learned from earlier years and pass the skill on to the next cycle of students.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Kim John Payne's Social Inclusion Approach (SIA) is the closest peer program. Unlike SIA, which has adult-driven solutions, Compassionate Campus engages students by having children help other children make decisions about children. Compassionate Campus takes less time to fully implement than the 3 year time frame SIA lays out.

Competitors include a host of commercial character education programs. Compassionate Campus is different than most because it teaches skills rather than behaviors (how versus what), it is child-driven so kids relate more, and uses real life situations in real time rather than role-playing or something on a scree for a more authentic experience.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Compassionate Campus started in a private school in Northern California. The program evolved and was implemented at a public charter school also in Northern California. Now the program is in its third evolution and has been in effect at Journey School, a public K-8 charter school, since September 2011. Since implementation at Journey, there has been a 60% reduction in discipline issues as measured by children being sent to the office. Also, the percent of students who feel safe & secure at school rose from 76% to 92% as a result of this program.

Teachers note that children feel more connected to other students across their school, they feel as if they have someone to bring problems to and they feel heard. They are more open to talk, more expressive in their feelings, and love spending time with their partners -- they feel a great bond. Mentors, are rising to the challenge and getting out of their comfort zone (boys especially) to be emotional guides for the younger buddies.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Empathy will become ingrained in the Journey School culture as listening and inquiry skills deepen with practice year after year.

Teachers will have more time to focus on lessons as disruptions decrease and students are less distracted by social-emotional issues.

Parents will become trained and involved in the program as Calm and Return Educational Servers (CARES) and Parents on the Playground (POPs) volunteers.

An entire school community will become a community of compassion and serve as a scalable model to be replicated in public schools across the country.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The biggest barrier is in finding administration champions to spearhead the Compassionate Campus program in each school -- it takes dedication and a compelling advocate to implement the program. The second biggest barrier is in carving out time in the curriculum to teach these social-emotional skills.

With published statistics on the decreased need for interventions and discipline issues, we can show administrative and classroom time savings that would offset the time needed to implement the program.

Also, with statistics and survey results showing greater student satisfaction and happiness, we can ask schools and parents to consider the importance of social-emotional education. The imperative to make room in the curriculum becomes clear with measurable results.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

As the Education Director at another school, Bonnie River, the founder of Compassionate Campus, intervened in an incident where an older boy was physically harming a younger girl. As Ms. River hugged him tightly to restrain him, he began to sob. The "bully" began repeating to himself how he was not fat, not stupid. He went on to say maybe he was fat, maybe stupid. Finally he ended with he was fat, he was stupid. It became clear he was acting out as a victim of bullying himself. It was at that moment that Ms. River felt compelled to create a program where children could find a way to safely express the social challenges they were facing. She began work with Kim Jon Payne to create the Social Inclusion project. With time it became clear to Ms. River, that the adult-driven method developed with Mr. Payne needed to be more child-driven to be truly embraced by the students. Compassionate Campus was born of Ms. River's vision of using student-to-student interactions to grow empathy.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Reducing the growing trend of young people hurting themselves and others as a result of bullying, including cyberbullying. We felt that education in the classroom setting was the proper place to begin tackling the root of this problem, but there were little to no anti-bullying resources made for classroom use.

Three main obstacles we tackled moving forward were that educators don’t have the time or resources to put together their own curriculums, school servers block a majority of youtube.com videos and other flash sites created to address bullying, and curriculums that require extensive training of educators slow down the process of implementation.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We created the Bullying Academy which is an interactive and completely web-based program that provides anti-bullying curriculum for 4th-8th grade students, and soon 9th-12th. The educational materials contain professionally developed, age-appropriate content for each grade. Due to the program being completely web-based, it is immediately available to all schools throughout the US (and beyond) with internet access and there is nothing to ship or download to begin implementation. This web-based element is also useful for flexible implementation alongside current efforts in the classroom. All content, which includes written and video content, is formatted to be accessible to a majority of school servers. The curriculum is self-directed to a large extent and requires little to no familiarity with the subject matter on behalf of educators.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Ammons Middle School in Miami, Florida decided to adopt our program to be used in their lab setting and implemented by their technology coordinator. Their lab is just a room full of computers where students participate in various online or software programs. The school began by having their 6th grade students take turns over six weeks to complete the Bullying Academy. Each student would begin by registering with our site under the appropriate state and their corresponding school. They would complete a pre-quiz to assess what they already know about the subject of bullying. Next they would work their way through the lessons, that the site has nicknamed scavenger hunts, which is a structured outline of written and video content meant to engage the student. The students completed the program by taking a post-quiz. Each student’s score on the two quizzes are compared to determine if learning is actually taking place. Each student receives a Students in the Know/Bullying Academy diploma, with their corresponding scores upon completion. All participating schools have their students' cumulative scores automatically entered into a national contest cycle in which the top scoring school wins a trophy and party. Ammons middle school won our first national contest cycle which ran from September to October 2011.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Pacer, Stomp Out Bullying, MTV’s athinline campaign and Net Smartz (NST Teens) are all organizations/programs that have created website or video content to address bullying awareness. None are specifically designed to be used in the school setting, do not have grade-based structured curriculum and are not evidence-based (to meet state standards.) Pacer’s website is completely flash based and blocked by almost all school servers. CommonSense offers free educational materials and videos resources for educators to use, but the material is heavily teacher dependent. Olweus is an evidence-based anti-bullying program which is expensive and involves no web-based or online materials. ADL is free but not web-based. All are positioned to help as they could share component materials with us.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The program is currently only available to schools in the United States. We have 700 schools registered to use the program with at least one school in every state. Since the launch of the program in September of 2011, we have had 29,000 participating students. We are in the final stages of becoming research/evidence-based so that we can guarantee each student is demonstrating learning by measuring the difference between their pre-quiz and post-quiz results. We are empowering students directly with the proper responses and preventive strategies to ensure bullying doesn’t escalate into a tragic situation.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

By September of 2012, we will have 1,200 schools registered from around the United States. After assessing how the program performs in the 2012-2013 year, we will consider opening the program up to other countries such as Canada, Great Britain and Australia. In a three year time frame the program will reach at least 3,000 registered schools.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Barriers include schools not willing to pay or not able to find funding for anti-bullying programs. States have promised to provide grant funding, but these sources can be difficult to gain access to. Some organizations provide free hard copy curriculum materials which serve as an alternative to our own program. The Bullying Academy will combat these challenges by keeping our core program low-cost (free to those without school funding) and the fee for compliance reports low (within the discretionary spending of the principals.) To ensure use each year for each grade level, We will continuously updating our content to keep it relevant, fresh and engaging for students.

I, Tommy Walser, as founder of the program had experienced bullying in my own life and the lives of those around me. In college I became involved with a non-profit which used a database technology to create individual web-based scholarships for organizations. It worked by testing children on their retention of knowledge after reading through content on a particular website. I realized this technology had the capability of administering and tracking exams for thousands of students at a time, and its current capabilities were not being used to optimize its capacity. While bullying was becoming an epidemic being splashed across national headlines, I knew that I could solve a major problem involving a lack anti-bullying education in the classroom through creating a standardized and engaging curriculum on the topic.

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Em execução entre 1 e 5 anos

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

O Ensino Médio em Minas Gerais vem sofrendo com o aumento gradativo das taxas de abandono dos estudos. Entendemos que, embora multifatorial, a evasão tem ligação com a falta de participação das famílias e da própria identificação da juventude com o espaço escolar. Assim o projeto identifica como problemas a falta de diálogo entre as escolas e a comunidade que as cercam, as demandas da vida cotidiana que impedem a relação dos pais com a escola de seus filhos e, fundamentalmente, a pouca valorização do espaço escolar como um espaço comunitário, público e de acesso irrestrito à população.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Nós, da Escola Maurício Murgel, a partir de experiências realizadas anteriormente, nos reunimos em rede com outras oito escolas do Ensino Médio público para promover eventos itinerantes organizados por grupos de alunos, professores e gestores que recebam a comunidade e que a identifiquem como parte integrante de um projeto educativo local. Os organizadores mapearão seus entornos e identificarão potenciais educadores que serão convidados a gerir atividades nas escolas. Ao final do processo de encontros (1 por escola), será feita uma publicação capaz de disseminar a proposta e sistematizar os processos de integração entre escolas e comunidades. De formações oferecidas pelo cabelereiro local, ao pai que toca violão e dará uma oficina de música, as atividades serão empreendedoras, culturais e lúdicas. Para aproximar os jovens da proposta, a ideia é que eles sejam os responsáveis pela organização dos eventos, selecionando, inclusive o tipo de atividade a ser desenvolvida nas escolas.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

O projeto de eventos colaborativos permite que o estudante assuma um papel de gestão de sua escola, auxiliando-a a fortalecer seus laços com suas respectivas comunidades. Ao ser convidado a integrar a construção de uma atividade escolar em parceria com seus professores e gestores, o estudante é motivado a se reconhecer como parte integrante da escola e autor do processo formativo e pedagógico dos seus pares. Em eventos realizados anteriormente (quatro últimos anos), percebemos que os alunos muito se interessam pela atividade, percorrem caminhos para identificar parceiros locais, aprendem a reconhecer sua própria comunidade, descobrem e desvelam oportunidades educativas em espaços que tradicionalmente assim não eram considerados e passam a trabalhar melhor coletivamente, melhorando, inclusive o diálogo com os funcionários da escola. Da mesma forma, os professores e gestores se tornam verdadeiros parceiros dos estudantes, valorizando o protagonismo da juventude e buscando na comunidade possibilidades de novas práticas pedagógicas. Experiências pontuais se tornam ganhos de longo prazo – parceiros que surgem no evento tornam-se parceiros regulares nas escolas e pais, convidados para o evento especial, descobrem que a escola tem suas portas abertas e é capaz de recebê-los constantemente. O projeto ainda será sistematizado colaborativamente, possibilitando sua disseminação.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

O projeto não tem concorrentes diretos, mas tem o próprio cenário contemporâneo como um entrave para participação da comunidade em atividades escolares. Várias escolas realizam atividades similares, mas normalmente mantém-se solitárias e não sistematizam e disseminam suas experiências. Mais do que abrir a escola à comunidade, o projeto busca que as instituições angariem parceiros constantes em suas práticas pedagógicas e, ao articularem um projeto conjunto, possam compartilhar as parcerias e as vivências de construção dessas atividades. Localizadas em áreas diferentes da Grande Belo Horizonte, os grupos participarão de atividades em comunidades diferentes das suas de origem, integrando escolas geograficamente distantes.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

A escola Maurício Murgel e as outras escolas envolvidas no projeto realizaram individualmente quatro eventos anuais de 2008 a 2011, promovendo atividades de interesse dos alunos e professores com parceiros da comunidade. Nesses eventos, participaram mais de 90% alunos das escolas e 3000 membros das comunidades em cada uma das instituições. Após os eventos, as escolas aferiram maior disponibilidade dos pais nas demandas e reuniões escolares, maior presença dos alunos nas atividades curriculares e melhora significativa no diálogo entre professores e estudantes. O número de ocorrências envolvendo alunos e professores diminuiu significativamente e o clima escolar melhorou. Todas as escolas tiveram oficinas propostas realizadas por alunos das escolas, aumentando assim a relação de pertencimento e ressignificação do ambiente escolar.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

As escolas desenvolveram o projeto individualmente. Para os próximos anos, a escola Maurício Murgel propõe que as escolas realizem a proposta coletiva e colaborativamente, apoiando-se nas experiências umas das outras. Ao passo que os eventos tornam-se tradicionais, espera-se que ganhem maior espaço e reconhecimento na comunidade e a medida que se estruturem de forma coletiva, ganhem escala. Os projetos, anteriormente organizados de forma voluntária e sem verba, com o prêmio poderão investir ainda mais em mobilização. Por fim, a publicação organizada colaborativamente permitirá a disseminação da proposta para outras escolas da rede e possivelmente para outros estados e países.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

O projeto tradicionalmente enfrenta as questões do mundo contemporâneo: dificuldade de mobilização, pouca adesão dos pais e demandas extracurriculares e de voluntariado dos professores, falta de espaço e alimentação para os organizadores (muitos deles, alunos). Porém, a medida que essas dificuldades se apresentaram nos projetos, a criatividade e o desejo de inovação apareceram e aparecerão novamente. Para enfrentá-los, já dispomos de grupos mobilizados e de recursos da própria escola para promover os encontros. Sem recursos financeiros, apenas com as parcerias comunitárias, cada escola foi capaz de mobilizar mais de 3000 pessoas da comunidade.

As inscrições vencedoras apresentam um plano sólido sobre como vão alcançar e acompanhar o crescimento do projeto. Identifique as metas de seis meses para aumentar seu impacto.

Realizar os eventos em seis meses com participação de no mínimo 3500 pessoas em cada e iniciar a publicação após o término deles

Cada escola envolvida na proposta teve um momento surpreendente em que a ideia de uma ação comunitária tomasse a escola e interferisse em suas ações pedagógicas, porém, é possível identificar um traço comum entre todas: a capacidade da juventude de mobilizar seus pares, seus pais e, inclusive seus professores. Uma das escolas promoveu uma campanha de doação de cestas básicas em que a turma que conseguisse maior número delas receberia um prêmio. Com o valor iriam a uma pizzaria, mas na mesma época a cidade de Itajaí (SC) sofreu grave enchente e os estudantes usaram a verba recebida para comprar água para a cidade, transformando o próprio contexto da gincana. Assim, os eventos possibilitaram ricas trocas de experiências e estimularam o pertencimento comunitário e solidariedade.

Por favor, explique de que forma o estabelecimento de parcerias é importante para o sucesso de sua inovação

O projeto é essencialmente constituído de parcerias na escola (entre professores, estudantes e gestores) e com a comunidade, que promove ações dentro e para a escola. Portanto, as parcerias que se estabelecem continuamente na escola ganham alcance nos eventos e outras que surgem nos dias de mobilização das escolas tornam-se parceiros constantes. Ressalta-se ainda que as parcerias não são apenas financeiras ou de recursos – tem de cunho educativo e amparam o trajeto pedagógico da escola.

Qual o perfil da equipe (colaboradores, voluntários etc.) que vai garantir o cumprimento das metas de crescimento identificadas por você na seção ‘Impacto Social’?

A equipe principal é composta por professores, gestores e estudantes de oito Escolas Públicas de Belo Horizonte, Betim, Betim, Belo Horizonte, Contagem, Ibirité, Santa Luzia e Vespasiano (MG). São escolas comprometidas e com vasta experiência comunitária e de gestão de parcerias. Atualmente essas escolas compõem junto a outras doze escolas a Rede Jovem de Futuro, que tem no poder associativo entre instituições públicas e privadas a possibilidade de interferir positivamente na educação.

Fale mais sobre as necessidades ou ofertas que você selecionou anteriormente e/ou sugira categorias de apoio que não foram listadas

As escolas se articularam por meio do Projeto Jovem de Futuro, promovido pelo Instituto Unibanco e durante três anos participaram da metodologia proposta. Para amparar as escolas que concluíram o ciclo de três as escolas estão articuladas em rede. Assim, as escolas poderão colaborar oferecendo apoio a interessados e propor estratégias colaborativas para outros projetos com novos parceiros.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Parents and communities are requiring that schools address bullying problems that hinder student learning. HartBeat is looking to provide schools with bullying prevention programs that are affordable, flexible, and centered on the three "e's," empathy, empowerment and engagement. Startin’ Drama addresses common issues experienced in early adolescence such as puberty, identity, dating and cyber bullying. Using HartBeat’s play-building framework, students in Startin’ Drama receive an opportunity to role-play various bullying scenarios and become familiar with intervention strategies.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Startin' Drama is a bullying prevention program that combines interactive theater with evidenced based assessment tools to teach empathy, engagement and empowerment. After administering a comprehensive School Climate Survey, HartBeat teachers work with students to create and perform scenes that come from participants’ specific experiences with bullying. The program culminates with an interactive student performance. Because of the various constraints of budget and schedule that each school has, Startin' Drama is offered as three different tiers of programing and can be tailored to each school. A tier 1 program involves a one-time assembly in which HartBeat members write and perform the scenes based on School Climate survey results. Tier 2 puts the work of creating and performing the scenes into the hands of the students in a 3 to 5 day in-school residency. Tier 3 turns the program into a 5-week after school program in which students meet and work on scenes twice a week.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Each session begins with a definition and identification of various types of conflicts that could be seen as bullying. This is done through an anonymous School Climate Survey.

During the first week students are taught Consensus Process, a decision-making process that not only seeks the agreement of most participants, but also to resolve or mitigate the objections of the minority opinion to achieve the most agreeable decision. Once they have completed the consensus training, students govern themselves as much as possible and make all of their decisions by consensus.

Students then begin physical theater training, vocal technique and ensemble-building exercises. HartBeat guides participants through a process we call “framework,” where students take thematic scenes and break them into first one, then three and then five freeze-frames that depict the action of a scene. Students then put the five freeze frames into movement with improvised dialogue and staging, at which time they have created a rudimentary scene.

Once the scenes are created and rehearsed, HartBeat uses them to teach participants Forum Theater. Forum Theater is a Theater of the Oppressed technique that begins with the enactment of a scene in which a protagonist tries unsuccessfully to overcome a problem. The audience or “spect-actors” are then invited to replace the protagonist at any point in the scene and suggest an alternative action that could lead to a solution. This provides an opportunity to explore bullying interventions that are tailored to the specific experiences of individual students.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Over 500 students have been served by a Startin’ Drama workshop since we introduced the program in 2011. Participant post-program evaluations for Startin' Drama have always been overwhelmingly positive.  For the most recent Startin' Drama session we ran, 89% of participants reported that the program helped them think of different ways to deal with specifics conflicts in their lives and 95% said they enjoyed participating. 

Family members surveyed after the program said the enjoyed being able to share their own stories of conflict resolution with their child and that they saw growth in their child's ability to navigate difficult situations.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

HartBeat projects that we will serve at least 6,000 more students over the next three years at our current capacity. These students will each have new tools to recognize and transform bullying behaviors in their communities.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A barrier to our project is the need for more qualified teachers, to be able to reach more schools in our area. We are addressing this barrier by creating comprehensive training materials for other theater professionals, and planning training workshops to bring in more teachers in our region.

Over the last ten years of Education Programs, HartBeat Co-Artistic Director Julia Rosenblatt realized that students don't always recognize when they or students around them were engaging in bullying behavior. Instead they label it as people "startin' drama." This concept was introduced to her while reading Danah Boyd, Youth and Social Media Scholar. What if the program asked all participants to describe experiences where they felt intimidated or made to feel bad without the label of what constitutes bullying? This way we could get to the heart of bullying behavior and its outcomes on others, while teaching students how to mold their experiences into theatrical scenes. By emphasizing what"feels like bullying" rather than "what actually constitutes bullying", Startin' Drama teaches empathy, engagement and empowerment along with valuable theater skills.

HartBeat has had a long partnership with the Travelers Insurance Company, who has supported our educational programs that reduce racial isolation among suburban and urban students. We have partnered with five Greater Hartford school districts since 2007 to make this interdistrict theater programming possible. HartBeat is now working with individual schools throughout Hartford as well as the Hartford Boys and Girls Club to bring Starin' Drama to 6th through 12th graders in our city.

Our Co-Artistic Director Julia Rosenblatt created the Startin' Drama program and has been the lead teacher since our first pilot in Spring 2010. She is joined by assistant teacher Cindy Martinez, who grew up in Hartford, and is also a professional theater artist and spoken-word poet. Managing Director Jennifer Yanko provides all managerial and administrative support, including initial contact with school partners, to both grow and sustain the program. We are aided by several college interns who seek out HartBeat as a site to learn innovative arts pedagogy and arts-integration programming.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others,” said Nelson Mandela. At GILD, we are tackling the lack of social responsibility in adolescent while simultaneously increasing global issues awareness. Psychologist Jean Twenge says kids are cynical and apathetic because of waning personal responsibility and a fading idea of collective action. Through GILD’s program, students connect with and participate in solutions to real problems. We are fierce believers that we can teach young people to understand their responsibilities to their communities, effectively influence decision makers, while adding value to the work of nonprofits and socially responsible organizations, thus enhancing the freedom of others.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

GILD has four tools to engage students in interactive learning:
First – A leadership seminar for the student leaders. Students learn how to function as a team, prepare for weekly meetings, and plan events.
Second – Specialized education. GILD recently launched Sharing our World, an online resource with individuals who have lived, worked, researched, and traveled extensively abroad. Club members can utilize the website to contact experts, natives or those working in the field to share their experience and knowledge. The tools below are still being developed:
Third – Students will create and participate in a local service project during Spring Break
Fourth – Students will create and participate in an international service project during the summer.
Each program cultivates social responsibility, leadership and civic engagement to reduce social apathy and increase social consciousness.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

We work in high schools to start an after school program—Global Issues Club (GIC). During the summer, club leaders receive leadership training to prepare them for running club meetings during the year. As they sharpen their leadership skills, students review the previous year’s activities, make necessary changes, and choose issues to work with. In order to meet our second goal, to holistically educate participants about global issues and human rights concerns, GILD built Sharing our World (SoW). SoW is a partnership project with the Peace Corps Fellows Program at the University of Missouri-Columbia. We use SoW to connect students to those in the field. During meetings, students learn about their chosen issues through speakers, films, and other sources and also plan fundraising events to benefit the organization they chose. To learn more about the SoW, please visit the site www.gildhumanrights.org/sharingouroworld/ As we grow, we want to offer service-learning opportunities to our students in order for them to work side by side with nonprofit organizations. We will do this during Spring Break and in the summer. During the summer, students select a destination and organization to serve for up to eight weeks. Club members will have spent the school year learning about a particular issue in which they can choose to serve or select another issue. Sophomores will serve in their respective states or provinces. Juniors will serve anywhere in their countries and senior will serve overseas.

Global Kids educates marginalized youth about critical international and public policy issues and inspires them to take action. Green Works provides environmental education through experiential learning and paid internship opportunities to urban teens. Both these organizations work with one distinct population, but GILD works with all high school students. Unlike GILD their programs take place outside the schools; so the students miss out on the opportunity to engage their peers at school and they provide no international opportunities. We anticipate success because our approach is holistic. We want to go beyond teaching topics like human trafficking and sustainability. We want to inspire community action and lifestyle changes like consuming fair trade and green products.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We stared our work in 2009. We started with Rock Bridge and Hickman High School. In 2011 we started working with Clayton High School. Our students have planned a successful conference, fundraised for 7 nonprofit organizations and planned numerous fundraisers. Our alumni are enrolled in universities and are engaged in various campus organizations. Lastly, we finished building the Sharing our World website, using a grant from MU Interdisciplinary Innovation Fund. We are in the process adding more contributors every day. These contributors will play a role educating our students about global issues and human rights. We want to encourage our students not only to learn from textbooks, but to learn from those in the field as well. Looking at our surveys, our club members give us positive feedback about their experiences. “The club has inspired me to be more aware of the global events that require attention and it has shown me how we can help others through fundraising and other methods.”

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

With the help of our interns, volunteers, and service learning students, as well as our partners, we are going to increase the number of contributors on the Sharing our World website. By our sixth year, we will be able to monetize the website, as well as offer its resources to other teachers—speakers for their classrooms. We are also in the process of building an endowment fund. Our money will be invested with Central Missouri Community Foundation. We have written gift giving policies and a case statement. Upon further review of these documents from experts, we will launch our campaign. The money raised will allow us to scale up—increase the number of schools we work in and start sending students on service learning projects where they work side by side with nonprofits in the field.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Barriers that might hinder our success include fundraising, opening new schools and hiring passionate staff. We overcome our fundraising barriers by diversifying ways in which we raise money and thus our ability to thrive and grow. We raise money by writing grants. We are starting an endowment fund with Community Foundation of Central Missouri. We also plan our own fundraising events. Starting Global Issues Clubs in other high schools requires administrative approval, a club sponsor, student interest and a school coordinator. At any given moment, one or more of those aspects might be missing and thus making it difficult to start a club. Lastly, our work requires passionate and skilled individuals. Thus our staffs have to be passionate about human rights.

Nadege Uwase, GILD’s founder, was at a Global Issues Club meeting when one of the members talked about how the Club’s global issue of choice, HIV/AIDS, could also impact their lives and the lives of their peers so they were planning to get tested. Right then and there, Nadege realized that she and her peers had made an impact. It is possible to teach people something and change their behaviors. Students can learn about global issues and human rights, how those issues impacted their lives and the information would change their behaviors. It was the “Aha!” moment. GILD could build a new generation of leaders and citizens that are civically engaged, not only on international level but engaged in their own local communities.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

One of the fundamentally important dimensions of school climate is how “connected” people feel to one another in school. This relationality is a powerful predictor of adolescent heath, academic outcomes, group cohesion, respect and mutual trust, and violence prevention. Snapshot: 60% of middle school students say that they have been bullied; 2/3 of students who are targets become bullies; 888 hate groups are currently operating in the United States, an increase of 48% since 2000; 61% of Americans say they would not vote for a candidate who was an Atheist; 20% of high school students have seriously considered suicide.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Through a carefully focused curriculum, Camp Everytown promotes life, leadership, and relationship skill-building through activities such as (1) Understanding Prejudice, (2) Gender Empowerment, (3) Understanding Family Cultures (4) Segregation exercises, (5) Privilege/Advantage exercises, and (6) Disability exercises. All interactions are designed to lead students to a respectful understanding of what others are experiencing -- in other words, empathy. According to a recent Camp Delegate, “Camp gave me the confidence to just start talking with people and try to find points of commonality, to dive in and connect with people, which of course is the most important way to destroy stereotypes, by building those connections.” Another participant said: "It seemed I was making huge life changes at Camp every hour instead of every 10 years."

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Camp Everytown is a four-day, three night residential retreat through which high school students, faculty, and other community members learn to value one another across difference. Through group processes and exercises, Camp builds awareness of prejudice, appreciation for diversity, empathy, and new leadership skills.

Example
"Everybody stand up," the facilitator says. "Stand in a line and respond as I suggest. If you have ever skipped a meal at home because there wasn't enough money, take a step back." The students look around, and one by one, they take that first step." If you have ever thought of suicide, take a step back." Three students hesitantly step and then look at each other. One young man starts to cry." I thought I was the only one," he whispers. The facilitator continues: "If your parents ever told you that you were beautiful or smart, take a step forward. If they told you that you would never be anybody, take a step back." After several more questions the facilitator says, "Now look where everyone is...The ones in the back are survivors; they are here against all odds. It's up to all of us to bring them forward with us."

The Camp Everytown model is unique. The program closest to ours is a one-day, site-based program called "Challenge Day." This program gives in smaller doses the values we are able to cover in depth in our four day, off-site program: respect, empathy, self-esteem and leadership. Because "Challenge Day" is only one day and is held onsite, the cost to the school is much less. However, we don't see this as having an impact on our growth, as most schools who participate in Camp Everytown use "Challenge Day" to spread the values of Camp to non-delegates among their students.

Teachers and students all report an improvement in school climate; student involvement in school activities has risen; levels of appreciation for diversity have increased; division of students into separate groups has decreased significantly. In fact, Bob Grover, former Vice-Principal of Fremont High School told us: "Camp changed the campus climate. When you walk across the FHS campus today, instead of pockets of separation, you see students of different ethnicities mingling together. The student leaders are now representative of the whole student body." And Phan Ngo, Deputy Chief of the San Jose Police Department, says, "I am convinced that these programs have made a significant contribution to the safety and well being of our community.”

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We intend to expand the current number of Camps per year to 21 -- nearly double the current number of around 700 students. This would mean serving 1260 to 1680 students per year. In addition, we hope to pilot a site-specific follow-up program in two high-need high schools. An important aspect of the follow-up program is for Camp Delegates (students who have finished Camp at some point) to develop and complete a peer-led and managed community service project.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The major barrier is financial. The cost of Camp is $375 per student. A few schools have been able to budget Camp and cover all costs. Now, with many schools facing hard budgeting choices, Silicon Valley FACES has pledged to locate funders and secure much of the funding for these camps. The road has proven to be rather long and winding. Loyal funders, while still giving support, are giving in smaller amounts. Some foundations have closed altogether. We are now widening our search, approaching new categories of funders (such as the County General Fund), and increasing our requests to individuals.

Camp Director Richard Valenzuela recounts, "When I went to Camp as a 19-yr old college kid, I saw that something positive could be done beyond marching/protesting. When I became an adult I wanted to offer Camp so more kids could participate. Parents and grandparents who had attended camp approached him. They remembered their own experiences at Camp had been a turning point in their lives; they wanted their kids to be have the same growth-experiences. "Putting a class into a different physical setting," he says, " generates a bond among class members and creates a learning community." Says one student, "Camp changed my life!" Says another, "More than anything, Camp Everytown opened my eyes... Camp Everytown will forever be a part of my life."

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Lack of awareness causes loss of thousands of lives globally to preventable and curable cancer cases. It also determines the way the society perceives cancer and cancer patient. The situation is quite severe in Nepal where more than 40% of the population is illiterate. Even the literate do not possess adequate knowledge about cancer. Most cases reported in hospitals are at advanced stages signifying the lack of awareness and practice regarding–its prevention, early detection and appropriate treatments. Also cancer is often seen with fear and cancer patient with pity.
We aim to disseminate awareness so that people can adopt a more healthy lifestyle and seek appropriate measures ahead of time so that thousands of lives can be saved. We also wish to develop positive attitude towards cancer.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We believe that young children have the power to act as change makers among their peers; in their family, their neighborhood and society as a whole. Hence, this project plans to spread cancer awareness in young students, the makers of the society hence preparing them to combat cancer with the right attitude. The activities include:
• To conduct Awareness campaigns through documentaries, interaction and IEC materials focusing on tobacco, diet and exercise, danger signs of cancer, its prevention, treatment options, attitude towards cancer.
• To conduct different literary events such as arts, drama, essay, speech and debate
• To Train on healthy diet
• To Promote healthy lifestyle through different sport events
• To Mobilization of students to generate awareness in and around the school premises as students are agents of change.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The Elixir Club is a model for generating awareness on cancer and encouraging to acquire the healthy lifestyle. The youth at the Elixir Club will get knowledge on the different aspects of cancer and will impart this knowledge to their peers, families, societies and nation as a whole also spreading the positive attitude towards cancer.

Since the last six months, when VS Niketan decided to partner with us against cancer, our Foundation has constantly provided various trainings, information and guidance needed by the team of young students from the school to take a lead in their respective communities.

As part of the project, the students recently decided to take a step towards enforcing the new formulated “Tobacco Control and Regulatory Act, 2068” around their school campus. They interacted with shopkeepers and pedestrians within the 100m radius of the school premises and educated them about the ban of smoking and the sale of tobacco products in public areas.

Our pioneer Elixir Club at Ideal Model School has successfully conducted an Inter School Meet on various literary competitions including 8 schools on the occasion of the World No Tobacco Day 2011. It was a platform where youth addressed their own problems and came up with their own solutions.

All this and so much more make us believe that youth are not the leaders of tomorrow but today itself.

Organizations such as NCRS and NNCTR are also working in the field of cancer mainly focusing on treatment and early detection aspect. They also organise the educative program on cancer on occasion basis.

As a memorial foundation we are a team of devoted individuals, who understand that awareness comes from self realization and it should be a continuous process rather than interval based. Thus, the concept of the elixir club imparting awareness in regular basis via different activities as well as promotion of the positive attitude towards cancer. We mainly believe in active involvement of the receiver rather than participating as audience and the elixir club provides the opportunities and ground for involvement and bringing change in individual as well as social environment.

- The main barrier would be manage the smooth monitoring of the Elixir Clubs. Material development, volunteer management, activities, training of trainee are the major areas which we intend to focus. We have a certain pool of resource people and volunteers who work with us selflessly. However we do need some hired volunteers for the smooth functioning. We tend to overcome this problem through recruiting permanent staffs on hired basis and development of the various tools like the IEC materials which are essential for our endeavor. We only intend to conduct fundraiser activities in regular intervals to meet our financial requirements.

The self-motivated events conducted by two of the Elixir Clubs made us see the Club as a changemaker. One event was conducted by the Elixir Club of V S Niketan who took initiative in enforcing the 'Tobacco Control and Regulatory Act 2068' in the locality of the school area at Minbhawan, Kathmandu. Another event was conducted by the Elixir Club of Occidental Public School at a remote village of Dhading district. They showed the documentary 'Hunna', produced by the Richa Foundation that talks about the adverse impacts of smoking, and interacted with locals. Two people have given up smoking as an instant result of the program.

The impact caused by these programs made us believe that Elixir Club has the potential to change the world.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

When students do not feel safe or cared for, they are less capable of reaching their full potential for personal well-being, and social and academic success. Yet, today, many students have the experience of being teased, intimidated, excluded, harassed, and even physically harmed in school. Social and emotional learning (SEL) programs are meant to address these problems. These programs are effective at helping students to develop increased empathy, decrease bullying, create and maintain healthy relationships, and gain the skills to resolve conflicts non-violently. It is often difficult for schools to find the time and funding to implement these programs. Therefore, the majority of schools still lack adequate social and emotional learning programs.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our “Speak your Peace” program offers a unique way for schools to implement a social emotional learning program with little financial cost or demands on teacher time: teach students to be the teachers! Fifteen years ago our organization created a program called Students Teaching Attitudes of Respect (STAR) to help schools with limited financial resources and staff time implement social emotional learning programs for their students. To date, STAR has successfully trained teams of students from 26 schools in Minnesota to teach conflict resolution, empathy, and compassion in their schools and communities. Our approach has been refined over the years to the point that it is receiving interest from around the country. We have developed the Speak Your Peace program to assist schools across the United States and around the world to implement the model of students teaching students social and emotional skills.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

First, a school selects 6 or more student volunteers in 5th-8th grade who show positive leadership skills to be part of a “Speak Your Peace” team. The team will work with an “advisor” throughout the school year, usually meeting for at least one hour per week during the school day or afterschool. The advisor can be a teacher, parent volunteer, social worker or other school staff member whose role is to help the team prepare presentations, and arrange opportunities for them to teach. The advisor and the team use a “Speak Your Peace” manual and DVD which includes information on how to be effective teachers as well as in-depth lessons on the following topics: Feelings and Needs, Bullying Behavior, Respectful Listening, Perspective, Thought Process, Cooperative Games, and Understanding Conflicts. Each topic section includes:
- Information about the topic
- A sample work lesson
-A student work plan for the team to use in writing out their parts for their own presentation
-A variety of skits and activities that the team can choose to use in their lesson.
-Entertaining video clips relating to the topic

Once a team has prepared and practiced their presentation, the advisor schedules times they can teach throughout the school. Finally, the students actually go into classrooms and teach! The students who are taught by the “Speak your Peace” Team learn practical knowledge and skills they can use to get along with others and resolve their conflicts. And by teaching the skills, the learning is more deeply internalized by the Speak Your Peace team members.

While there are other social emotional programs in existence, we have not found any that focus on students as the teachers. There may be those who don't believe it's possible to have kids teach. However, our success not only demonstrate that it’s possible, but that it has many advantages: 1. When students teach something they learn it better. 2. Seeing kids teach gets other kid’s interest and attention. 3. Students are more likely to believe in the usefulness of social and emotional skills and concepts taught by kids close to their own age, and thus are more likely to use them. 4. In order to create a culture of peace, students must see empathy, compassion, and non-violence as “cool”. Empowering influential students to be positive role models who teach peace skills helps to do this.

We believe that every student should have the opportunity to learn skills of empathy, compassion, and nonviolence. Our program has allowed thousands of students within schools throughout Northern Minnesota to have this opportunity. Now we would like to make it available to schools throughout the world. We recently completed the second edition of our program’s manual and DVD which we will market on a national level so that our program will begin to be impemented in schools across the U.S. We will also be providing training, to interested schools, on how to successfully implement the program. We also plan to begin translating the Speak Your Peace program materials into at least two other languages so that the program can reach international audiences.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

We believe that once schools are aware of the Speak Your Peace program, they will be interested in implementing it. Getting them to be aware of the program, however, may be our biggest challenge. In order to generate awareness and interest in the program, we will need to adequately promote it. Peacemaker Resources is a non-profit with a small staff and a limited operating budget. A successful promotion and marketing campaign would require more staff time and financial resources than our organization currently has available. And if we are successful at generating interest in the program, acquiring the resources to offer customer support and continued development of the program may pose additional challenges.

The seeds of the Speak Your Peace program were planted in the early 90's at a school in Bemidji, Minnesota where one of our staff had been volunteering to teach social emotional skills. It was there that she had the idea to give students the opportunity to teach the skills they had learned. She thought that if students taught these skills to others they, themselves, would learn more. Students loved teaching what they knew to others, and their audiences were engaged and enthusiastic. One of the first audiences outside of the school setting was the sheriff’s department where Sue had been asked to do a presentation on how to de-escalate a conflict. She brought a team of 3rd graders who quickly had the attention and interest of many police officers. The students taught a 40-minute lesson on “I-statements” and other conflict management techniques. The officers expressed gratefulness that youth were being taught the skills that they knew could significantly change their jobs in the future.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

For children growing up in rural and urban slum areas, where poverty is rife, education is the door out of poverty. The quality of education in deprived areas is grossly poor and dependent on rote learning. Teachers and students alike are confronted with lack of opportunities to learn, think, and access knowledge. Creative and critical thinking, meaning making, and leadership skills are neither part of the school curriculum nor the environment. Teachers’ pedagogical limitations and lack of good examples to learn from has created an environment that is stark and not conducive to developing children into empathic leaders.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

DIL establishes and manages schools. DIL teachers, 90% women, are trained in DIL’s state-of-the art curriculum, which is designed to build confidence and higher level thinking skills in students while meeting national academic standards. Students receive strong academic foundations and critical thinking skills. The curriculum integrates co-curricular activities and on-line project based learning to develop students’ problem-solving and collaborative skills. Through participation in Parent Teacher Associations at DIL Schools, stakeholders provide input in school design, delivery and evaluation.
The co-curricular space allows for engagement with teachers and students to address community and gender issue. Project based learning enriches the main school curriculum; provides students opportunities to develop collective learning and leadership skills; and empowers teachers to guide students in community based projects of their own.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The DIL education model integrates a structured co-curricular program into the school curriculum. It comprises of i) competitive activities for sports & art; and ii) project based activities like recycling, science, and reading clubs. The DIL Computer Program, introduced as a co-curricular activity across 20 DIL urban slum and rural schools, has evolved into an integrated model for students to fully participate in on-line projects. Students have developed a movie that captures and comments on the issue of child labour. Student groups have implemented community projects to cleanup unused plots as playground areas in slums; recycle plastic bags; and teach literacy to adults.
Main activities include:
• Linking student groups to DIL and other organisations’ on-line interactive learning activities,
• Opportunities for students to directly interact with best teachers and learning tools.
• Development of new student on-line activities based on core curriculum.
• Monitoring & Process documentation to ensure achievement of project objectives.
• Development of model for replicating project in rural schools across Pakistan.

• Children acquire the knowledge and skills needed to advance in life.
• Children develop self-confidence and value education.
• Parents are proactive in sending children to school and supporting girls for higher education.
The program has expanded to 173 school units, with 49 schools participating in the co-curricular computer program. 47% of DIL graduates continue their education or become employed. Nearly 2,000 DIL students are engaged in on-line activities, developing projects that capture their views and opinions on social and community issues like environment, gender, child labour, and education.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Over the next three years DIL plans to work on schools enhancement, teacher development, and replication of technology enhanced co-curricular program. The computer and co-curricular program is expected to expand to 5,000 students in 30 schools. In addition DIL plans to extend its teacher training and quality education program to 30 new schools managed by other NGOs and government, impacting at least 4,000 students and 75 teachers. 20 DIL schools that were initiated as small community primary schools will be developed to middle level, providing opportunity for 1,500 more students (70% girls) to continue in a high quality education and leadership development program.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The program has been piloted successfully and is ready for replication. Funding, especially for upgrading existing small schools, may pose as the main barrier for replication of program. Quality of human resources and expansion of management structures are essential for program quality and expansion. DIL will need to not only hire new staff but put them through extensive training in acquiring the DIL approach and processes that promote and encourage leadership and empowerment rather than merely service delivery.

During a field visit we asked a group of DIL Kumb School grade 7 girls what computers meant to them? The girls were quick to point out, ‘we learn more through computers. Our books give us one example. When we research the topic on internet we learn in depth and other areas around it. We read and think a lot more!’ they laughed as though sharing a valued secret.
Are girls from other schools also learning computers? ‘Yes, but only technical things. We know and do so much more - they ask us to help them.’ The confidence, perceptions, and clarity of thought of these young girls was astounding. If this potential was unleashed in every child in rural Pakistan what would happen then.

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The problem is disengaged young people who do not feel they are important in the society and so therefore make poor choices in terms of alcohol and drug abuse.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

To establish an enterprise where the young people feel a sense of ownership and contribute to the community in which they live in a positive manner through engagement with arts practice.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

My aim would be to begin with younger members of the community; children and young people aged 7-14 years; and once the program is established to engage these young people as mentors for new members through community based practice where skilled young adults (16 to 30 years) share their knowledge, expertise and experience. I would like the program to be a not-for-profit agency where the young people eventually take the reigns and generate income through submitting their work to exterior bodies, whether in visual arts, film, theatre, music or writing. I believe that my solution focuses on creating opportunities and by engaging younger members initially it may be a way of showing alternative pathways before the impact of difficulty and challenge are resolved through harmful approaches.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

In the area in which I live there are few if any arts-based projects of this nature. There are a great many sporting projects and a community based project supporting young people into the building sector. The challenges, which I have faced before when working on a youth-based project were more to do with the concept of a new idea and a different person proposing it. Time and perseverance will be the most difficult of the challenges.

I had this moment when I completed a theatre course 9 years ago. I was discussing with a friend how I feel very strongly about the link between mental health and community/social wellbeing and the strength of the arts to support these areas. I have held this for a long time and it is a huge venture that I do not feel I can achienve on my own. If this were to become a reality I would be completely overwhelmed.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

1.1. To create empathy in the hearts of children worldwide, it needs direct child-to-child contact, across cultural, social, national borders – this is what many schools worldwide don't or can't deliver. And if they deliver? Nobody hears about it in the public - since its ignored by mainstream media.
2. To create empathy in the heart of people worldwide, young and old, it needs public awareness and indepth insight in the issues of marginalized groups – here, the mainstream media fail to deliver. With bombing children and families with constant commercial non-informative content full of violence, propaganda, non-sense, they are part of the problem – not of the solution. And: they earn money with stealing precisous time of the kids that they would need for education and empathy building.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We combine the empathy-creating potential of IT-based peer-to-peer cooperation of children in and out of school with the power of civil society media. Children of different parts of the world learn to know each eather, learn together, make friends, start partnerships.
And with the kids-made media reports about their achievements, they inform the public and function as role models for other children. Our media coverage, to be live on air, encourages them & the whole community. Moreover, being a child reporter opens doors to meet, interview and discuss important people, experts, role models that they would normally never would have the chance to meet. Example: UN messenger for Peace Jane Goodall, interviewed by a reporter that has strong learning disabilities, a marginalized Turkish girl who later received an award with us!
Thus, we can empower children to develop empathy and, as second step, multiply the awareness for their achievements via civil society broadcast and social media.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

In our series “We discover the World”, school children of the global North (Germany) focus on different global South countries and the life of children in these countries, e.g. Uganda, Ghana, Afghanistan, Thailand, India, Pakistan. They learn about children's rights, gender, child labour, climate change, interview experts and discuss possible solutions. As the highlight, they directly contact children in these countries either via skype, phone, email, letters, drawings. Thus, the children in the North get a broad understanding and a much closer personal, emoational relation to those issues that are far, far away for them. As a result, the kids often establish school partnerships and start fundraising for their new friends in the South. We record the whole process of global learning and empathy building in the workshop and turn into podcasts, radio shows and websites that are free use for all schools, families, digital civil libraries. Plus we share the resulting shows with non-commercial radio stations within the network of the World Association of Community Radios. This model creates a multi-win situation:The kids learn a lot and build empathy for peers in the South, other kids and families and the public become aware of their achievements, educators learn how to use IT for such projects in the future, non-commerical media are happy that they can provide their local audience with valuable, educative content, our donors are happy that we successfully contribute to global learning, cultural exchange and empathy building, both locally and internationally.

Facebook: does not educate and empower the kids for indepth educative work. Web-based education networks like IEARN: do not have the link to civil society media and their multiplying power, especially in regions with little internet access. Public Media: are top-down, mostly made by professional adults talking down the kids and are a “closed shop” especially for marginalized and “less talented” normal kids.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We have reached and involved children, youth, educators in more than 100 countries now; among them as diverse states as Afghanistan, Pakistan, USA, Canada, Russia, China, Greenland, Kiribati, Malawi; often marginalized kids. We have proven how intense and committed kids (from as early as kindergarten up to 18 years) worldwide are in working together, how keen they are to meet other cultures and how happy and ready they are when it comes to showing solidarity to peers in other countries after our trainings. We have proven the power of the innovative mix of school based media workshops and cooperation with civil society media. As a result, we have a tremendous demand for projects in more than 100 countries, from Mocambique to Indonesia, from Bolivia to USA: school, youth centre, street children shelters, community media asking for cooperations and want to become part of our global network, want to foster empathy, tolerance, peace, education across cultural, social, political borders.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

1. Global roll-out: 150 countries involved
2. Intensification: more and more regular exchange of even more the partners worldwide. More minorities + handicapped kids involved
3. Diversication: More multi-media and social media involved. Re-naming to World Children's MEDIA Network
4. Educational progress: research and impact based improvement of our methods, disseminated by training of involved educators.
5. Decentralization, based on "Social Franchising": Establishment of regional and national chapters of our World Children's Media Network on all continents. This is the strategic tool to guarantee for true and equal global exchange of kids, as condition to reach empathy and understanding.
6. Sustainability by diversification and growth of funding sources (details see next block)

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

After 10 years and many prestigious national and international awards, we still have no regular funding for the core team. Dangerous, discouraging and exhausting.
Plan to overcome them is to reach sustainability by diversification and growth of funding sources:

1. Diverse financial sources:
Crowd funding, schools' own education budgets, local/regional/national funding for the regional chapters, special fundings for special issues e.g. environment, girls rights, media trainings; merchandising, membership fees, long-term projects with top-donors for global top-projects, e.g. global peace education project with World Bank or UNESCO.

2.) Establishment of the World Children's Media Foundation as a powerful und lasting foundation of our work; as layed out in profound Master Plan.

Back in 2001, I did my MBA in Media Management. My son Jonathan was five then. As a journalist, I wanted to listen to the radio, but I realized that I had to turn it off everytime my son came in: There was scary news in the context of 9/11, and the other stations were full of mindless commercial trash. This was the moment when I started to think about a children's radio - and I discussed it with Jonathan. As sociologist with some child/media psychology knowledge who was influenced by East German civil society movement in his youth, I decided that the radio should non-commercial, educative, advertising-free and organized as grassroots NGO. I started with 5000 Euro debts due to the MBA and only with the help of friends.
Ten years later, we connect children in more than 100 countries, have received prestigious awards. And Jonathan? He became part of the Global Youth Media Council and co-author of its declaration at the World Summit on Media for Children and Youth in Sweden 2010...!

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The Philippines has a high number of child sexual abuse cases, mostly unreported. We have strong civil and religious laws, as well as strong societal and cultural value for child safety. Yet the number keeps rising. The Filipino traditional culture has strong empathy, yet something has been lost, which we feel has a large role to play in preventing and treating child sexual abuse of boys and girls. We have recently suffered from a spate of child rape murders, 18 in the first three months of this year. These girls were raped and then murdered by young adolescents, family members, community members. Their stories are varied, yet all come down to, "What happened to our empathy (pakiisa)?"

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Curriculum for Schools. We have developed, piloted and used successfully curriculum to empower students at all grade levels, teachers, schools, parents and communities in preventing child sexual abuse. Lessons teach empathy with story telling and role playing, decision-making, clarify appropriate behavior, build support systems, even teach helping vocabulary. The lessons depend on support for the teachers with empathic school-based support systems of at least the principal - thus everyone is trained prior to beginning the lessons. The school is supported by a community or regional-based professional multidisciplinary team of doctors, police, social workers, psychologists, counselors and lawyers. It has been our experience, that by starting with the students, this galvanizes the entire environment to action - rather than having the children wait until all adults are ready, which may be never. We aim to revive our traditional empathy.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

In one school we taught all children that "it is never all right for someone to touch your private body parts except for health - if this happens say NO and get away - and tell someone until you get the help you need". Many of the students in that school were taking karate classes that the school organized with an outside teacher. Following these lessons, one boy told the school teacher that he was touched by the karate teacher. This one boy led us, through his support to his peers, to discover that every boy was sexually touched by the teacher under the guise of teaching karate. The karate teacher was reported to the police but he absconded. The school was prepared, so provided the boys with counseling to help them understand that what happened does not mean they are homosexual (the biggest concern in the Philippines among boy victims) and it was not their fault. None of the boys needed outside therapy, but the school was networked to these resources if needed. That is, the school and community were galvanized to provide empathic services to the child, rather than, as before, to not believe or blame the child.

Unfortunately, we have no competitors in terms of the developed curriculum. But we have many peers who also advocate in communities, work with parents, work to build child-friendly and appropriate laws and legal practices, and work directly with children in prevention and treatment. It is these peers who have helped us work with the Department of Education, who mandated through DepEd Order #45 in 2009 that all schools must teach this curriculum. We have all worked hard to interrupt by getting a space in the present busy curriculum. But more importantly, the lessons force teachers to teach differently, to listen to their students, to give students a bigger voice in their own protection. Our only concern for success is funding.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Increased requests for help from students and increased number of services provided by communities. Our lessons are taught by teachers and sometimes by our agency social workers. When we conduct the sessions, on the last day they get a card that says, “I have a touching problem that I need help with”. On an average, 12% of the students request help, and our social worker meets with each child – the cases range from counseling for better communication between parent and child to reporting sexual abuse to authority. Since we began teaching personal safety, we have gone into 493 schools, trained 2,634 teachers, taught 17,730 students, built 35 multidisciplinary teams, and brought to authority 77 cases.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

At the end of three years, 216 public schools have been reached, 1,404 teachers have been trained and 70,200 students have been taught. Personal Safety Lessons are aimed at building self-esteem and empathy and long term relationships so that today’s children do not become tomorrow’s offenders. For children in strong families, we give them back a sense of personhood and family protection. For at-risk children who do not report we teach them what happened is not their fault. For boys who are displaying abusive behaviours, we teach them appropriate behaviours and deal with their problematic issues that led them to those inappropriate behaviours.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

We have two barriers. One is funding. The other is that it is common during work in schools that teachers report other teachers – this has at times created a rift in the school between those supporting the accused teacher and those supporting the child who initially reported the abuse. But the Dept of Ed has developed and will continue to revise policies and procedures that support both student and teacher with a focus on child protection. Regarding funding, we continue to use creative means to use public monies and get local support for their schools.

Working with victims of abuse (known offenders, especially family) in institutions requires working with the family to prepare them to return the child home. But families did not know how to support the victim over the bread-winning father, communities blamed the victims or labeld them as homosexual (boys) and dirty (girls). As we advocated in communities, we found an increase in cases. Aha! We need to go up the river to prevent the flow of victims coming down the river.

Crescimento (seu piloto está em andamento e começa a se expandir)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Implementado há menos de um ano

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

O sistema de ensino e aprendizagem nas escolas públicas em São Paulo está em crise: por um lado os estudantes que não possuem nenhuma ou pouca conexão com os temas tratados em sala de aula, sem espaços de expressão e cercados por experiências de bullying. Por outro lado os professores desvalorizados, pressionados, "oprimidos pelos alunos", muitas vezes sem o preparo adequado para serem mediadores pedagógicos, em suma, desgastados. São raras as exceções. "Quem tem o poder de mudar a escola?" Esta foi a questão que norteou a pesquisa-ação feita em uma escola pública em São Paulo. As respostas indicavam ao mesmo tempo a percepção de um grande poder de todos os diferentes atores e uma percepção baixa do próprio poder de transformar. "Estou sozinho..o que eu posso fazer?"

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Ora se busca colocar a responsabilidade das falhas na educação pública sobre as costas dos professores, ora sobre as costas do governo, ora sobre o mal comportamento dos alunos. Este olhar fragmentado não será capaz de trazer soluções. É necessário mudar um sistema de relações, valores e significados que permeiam esta diversidade de realidades que se encontram em uma escola, para que professores, alunos e demais equipe escolar se tornem protagonistas para a realização da escola como um polo de transformação pessoal e social. E onde está o poder? O poder está nas relações. É preciso portanto aumentar o capital social nas escolas, fortalecendo laços de empatia, para que estes atores encontrem juntos as soluções capazes de responderam a realidade que eles, mais do que ninguém, conhecem. Nesta empreitada para tornar as escolas públicas células de transformação de toda a sociedade, serão utilizadas diversas metodologias como Teatro Social, Pesquisa-ação, Dragon Dreaming e Biopsicologia.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Iniciamos o projeto Células nas Escolas em agosto de 2011, na Escola Estadual Professora Amenaide de Queiroz, Zona Norte da cidade de São Paulo. De outubro a dezembro foram realizados encontros semanais com uma professora - que recebeu a formação dentro do projeto Células de Transformação Comunidades - e 12 jovens estudantes do Primeiro Ano do ensino médio. Nestes encontros realizamos dinâmicas de teatro social que fortaleceram a confiança nas relações, desenvolveram habilidades de liderança e proporcionaram momentos de diálogo e reflexão sobre a própria vida e os próprios valores. O resultado deste processo foi a criação de um sonho coletivo para escola, novas amizades e valores, e o projeto "Revolução na Diversão": criado pelo grupo de alunos tem como objetivo organizar um festival cultural na escola. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Revolu%C3%A7%C3%A3o-na-Divers%C3%A3o/17283....
Paralelamente a organização deste festival, conduziremos um processo de formação com os professores para a transformação das relações entre os atores da equipe escolar e a criação de um sonho coletivo para a escola.
Deste modo, estaremos trabalhando simultaneamente educandos e educadores, conectados empaticamente por meio de dinâmicas e exercícios teatrais, vencendo as barreiras relacionais, para a partir daí sonharem, planejarem e realizarem um projeto comum para a comunidade escolar.

Cada projeto possui uma particularidade e trabalha a partir de uma perspectiva ou faixa etária diferente, sendo muitas vezes adequado para um ou outro estágio de desenvolvimento de um grupo, território ou organização. O Células nas Escolas está focado em uma transformação relacional que envolve educadores e educandos, estando em um estágio inicial e essencial para uma transformação da educação que tenha sustentabilidade a longo prazo: abrimos as portas fortalecendo coletividades para co-criarem projetos e novas práticas de aprendizagem, atuando em rede. A partir deste passo, conectamos a escola em uma rede de iniciativas e políticas públicas que trabalham com jovens, educação ou desenvolvimento, de maneira que processo de empoderamento e transformação continue se fortalecendo.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

Esta solução foi encontrada por Giulio Vanzan (Projeto ProYouth)no norte da Itália quando trabalhava em uma escola com uma classe de alunos, em sua maioria imigrantes, de diversas etnias e opções religiosas. No início do processo os jovens tinham atitudes discriminatórias e agressivas uns com os outros. Ao término do processo, estavam juntos criando projetos na localidade. Magia? Não. Empatia. Em 2011, com base nesta experiência, foi iniciado na cidade de São Paulo o Projeto Células de Transformação em comunidades na Zona Norte da cidade. O teatro social, utilizado na formação de multiplicadores para atuarem com mobilizadores de desenvolvimento local, novamente comprovou seu forte impacto para ativar a empatia nas relações. Em Agosto de 2011 decidimos retornar para o contexto escolar: Porque não tornar as escolas células de transformação? Foi assim que foi criada uma versão brasileira do ProYouth, unindo práticas, conceitos e metodologias transformadoras.

Por favor, explique de que forma o estabelecimento de parcerias é importante para o sucesso de sua inovação

O projeto Células de Transformação possui mais de 15 parceiros nacionais e internacionais, entre estes a Universidade de São Paulo (USP), o Programa WHAT-IF(o Células é o único projeto extra-europeu), as Sub-Prefeituras da Lapa e de Santana/Tucuruvi. Sem o apoio destas organizações jamais teríamos chegado até onde chegamos. É uma relação de soma onde todas as partes envolvidas ganham e se fortalecem, a medida que trocam experiências, conhecimentos e recursos, abrindo novas possibilidades e muitas vezes nos despertando para coisas que "nem sabiamos que não sabiamos."

Qual o perfil da equipe (colaboradores, voluntários etc.) que vai garantir o cumprimento das metas de crescimento identificadas por você na seção ‘Impacto Social’?

Estamos presentes em 4 comunidades (3 na periferia da zona norte da cidade de São Paulo e 1 em Ubatuba) e uma escola. Recebemos anualmente mais de 70 voluntários que trabalham pelo período mínimo de 3 meses como agentes de desenvolvimento local nas comunidades. A coordenação deste projeto, implementado a partir de março/2011 e que está ganhando a dimensão de programa, é de quatro pessoas. Somos uma equipe de habilidades complementares, criativa, experiente e, sobretudo, que vive o que propõe, buscando desafiar e expandir nosso próprio limiar, o que proporciona um espaço inspirador para inovar.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

American teens are suffering from an epidemic of poor mental and emotional health:

- 10-15% of teenagers have symptoms of depression; 1 in 5 will know depression before adulthood. Teens are the most likely age to feel “alone.”

- 60% of high school students have contemplated suicide; 17% have seriously considered it; 8.4% have attempted in the past 12 months.

- 1 out of four teens are bullied. 9 out of 10 LGBT teens are bullied.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

1) Teaching mindfulness and social-emotional learning courses in high schools. Our motto for teaching in schools is: engage, connect, and go deeper. During our 10-week courses, we equip teenagers to deal with their own thoughts and emotions. Until we start teaching these skills in schools, we will have a generation that is leading without feeling.

2) Weeklong residential mindfulness retreats for teenagers. On our 5-day nature based retreats we deepen teenagers relationships with themselves, others, and the natural world. Our daily schedule includes mindfulness meditation, mindful movement (yoga, Qi Gong), small group discussions, and creative expression. About a third of our retreats are spent in silence (without any cell phones/technology) balanced by times of mindful discussion amongst teens and staff members and fun.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The core practice of all of our work is mindfulness meditation. A growing body of scientific research demonstrates that mindfulness and social-emotional programs in schools improves students’:

- Attitudes about others, empathy, social interactions and classroom behavior

- Inner resiliency and self-esteem

- Decreases their stress and conduct problems

We also teach “heartfulness” – practices that cultivate compassion. At one of our retreats last summer, there was a moment when a dozen teenagers were weeping simultaneously as they felt compassion for themselves and their peers. By increasing the amount of compassion teens feel towards themselves, they are able to cultivate more empathy for others.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

We are the only organization in the country dedicated to providing secular mindfulness meditation retreats for teenagers. Two Buddhist meditation centers, the Insight Meditation Society and Spirit Rock, also offer one five-day teen meditation retreat each year, but they are explicitly Buddhist organizations and have no plans to expand their programs.

In terms of our high school and after school programs, there is no other organization in the US dedicated to teaching mindfulness specifically to teenagers. There are a number of excellent organizations bringing mindfulness programs to younger students (K-8), but no one else focusing on teenagers.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since our inception in 2008 we have:

- Reached over 200 teenagers through our teen retreats. 90% of teen participants say the retreat “changed their lives.”

- Carried out research on our teen retreats in conjunction with Virginia Commonwealth University. Initial studies demonstrated positive effects on our teen retreat participants including, “Significant improvements over time in positive and negative affect, life satisfaction, self-esteem, mindfulness, acceptance, relatedness, and all 6 subscale indicators of emotion regulation.”

- We have hosted workshops for over 300 professionals and parents who work with teens

- We have taught more than 1,000 students through our in-school programs in four states (CA, VA, MD, DC)

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We aim to transform the lives of over 500 teens on retreat and reach over 10,000 teens through in-school programs. We also aim to train more than 200 teachers, professionals and parents in the iBme curricula and practices.

Our vision is to create a generation of leaders that are in touch with their own feelings, thoughts, and emotions. We want to create a generation of heart-centered leaders who are ready to tackle the challenges of the 21st century in collaboration with their peers and respect for the natural world.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

In terms of our retreats, our main barrier is having enough qualified teachers and staff to teach our retreats. Right now we have 20 qualified teachers. We are starting a teacher "apprenceticeship" model this summer in order to increase the number of qualified teachers for our retreats.

In terms of in school and after school programs, our main potential problem is qualified teachers. Last fall, we piloted our teacher-training program in the DC area and we are working to increase the number of qualified teachers with an expanded teacher training in the 2012-2013 school year.

Joe Klein was a counselor to Virginia Tech students in the wake of the shooting rampage in 2007. As he counseled the students, he realized more than his counseling training or any other formal schooling, his mindfulness practice allowed him to connect with the students.

Right after this experience, Joe was introduced to mindfulness retreats for teenagers. In his twenty-five years of working with teens, he had never seen a program that had such an ability to change the lives of teenagers so quickly and powerfully, and at the same time nurture and nourish the adults involved. As he puts it, “Everyone’s battery was on gain.” He immediately quit his job and decided to bring mindfulness to teenagers full time through retreats and in-school programs.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Project Cornerstone is committed to helping all children and teens in Silicon Valley feel valued, respected and known. Project Cornerstone’s School Partnerships program seeks to empower students, school staff, and parents to develop and implement strategies to decrease bullying and create caring, supportive, safe environments. Our programs and services help school communities build a web of support around young people so that they grow into healthy, caring and responsible adults.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Making true change in a school climate can only happen when all the stakeholders work together. Project Cornerstone works with students, school staff, and parents through four program elements—staff training, parent training, parent engagement programs, and peer abuse/bullying prevention workshops—to provide the foundation to create a caring school climate. Through these programs students learn the skills of respect, tolerance, honesty, peaceful conflict resolution, taking a stand against bullying behaviors and refusing to participate in gossip. Parents learn how to support their children and the importance of supporting all children in the community. Staff members learn new strategies to be intentional in their asset building with students and to utilized the strengths parents can bring to the school environment.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

All four program elements— parent engagement programs, peer abuse/bullying prevention, parent training, and staff training —build developmental assets and work to build a caring school climate. The peer abuse/bullying prevention program and parent engagement programs are considered model programs delivered to students during school hours.
• The parent engagement program increases parental involvement in elementary schools. Adults share selected books and lead activities and discussions that help students understand how to develop strong friendships, stop bullying and create a common language to discuss behaviors at their school. (English/Spanish)
• The peer abuse/bullying prevention program empowers youth to identify and directly address bullying problems on their campus and to create a new normal on the campus. The students with the support of staff create and implement an action plan for their campus.
• The parent training program helps adults understand and make a stronger commitment to supporting young people and provides tools, exercises and strategies to help participants fulfill their commitment.
• School staff trainings and consultations help schools examine the factors that contribute the most to school success, the importance of building positive relationships with students and the serious negative impact of bullying behaviors on the entire school community.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Our peers and competitors are Silicon Valley Faces, Kid Power, and PeaceBuilders. Unlike anti-bullying/violence prevention programs like Kid Power and PeaceBuilders, we do not charge our school partners for our programs. This allows us to partner with any district and school in Silicon Valley and not just those that can afford to pay for programs. Silicon Valley Faces is similar to us in their mission to build an inclusive and caring community, but they do not have the extensive number of school partnerships and volunteers that we have.

•Project Cornerstone is limited in its impact by staff capacity. It is important to balance the quality of services in our existing partnerships as we try to meet the needs of new partners.
•Working with schools is unpredictable as they face challenges due to budget uncertainty and continued cuts. This has limited the amount of time that school staff is available for training and consulting.
•The 55 mile geographic scope of Silicon Valley is a challenge to delivering services. It is challenging for staff members to get to community and school partners in an efficient way.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

In the 1990s, in Silicon Valley the majority of funding for youth programs was going intervention programs for youth already in trouble. With limited funding, agencies were unable to provide services for all the youth who needed them. The community leaders in the Youth Alliance (consisting of non-profits and government agencies) recognized that funding needed to shift to prevention for all youth. They discovered the developmental assets; assets that all youth need no matter culture, language spoken at home, or economic situation. These leaders realized this was THE program that was needed to bring the focus back on prevention and in an effort to do this Project Cornerstone was founded. A decade later research proves that the youth in Silicon Valley are increasing their assets.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Rhode Island faces many challenges and many of these obstacles impact the adults in these communities. The fundamental problem of course is lack of adult supervision. The number of families that leave children unsupervised has increased drastically in the past decade. More women are working, more couples are divorcing, and two parents need to work and more children are being born to single mothers.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

AZ Leadership Training is mastering processes and skills such as making decisions and dealing with conflicts.AZ Youth Leaders must be given opportunities to develop these skills, as well as provide feedback to each other after an experience. Leaders can be encouraged to keep notes on what does and doesn't work. The confidence and skills that Leaders gain are cumulative. They must be encouraged to challenge themselves, take risks and learn from their mistakes. We build tomorrows leaders who are active in making a positive impact on our community.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The procedure to which will accomplish these objectives is multifaceted:

Step 1: To identify and recruit “at risk” students through assistance of principals, teachers, police officers and other social agencies.

Step 2: Groups of 10-12 individuals will be formed and these groups will meet during 10 week summer program.

Step 3: Progressive sessions will be implemented starting with team building and physical conditioning, trust and communication; ropes challenge course, kayaking and end of session graduation celebration.

Step 4: These graduates will be recruited as peer leaders for future group teams as well as summer programming.

Step 5: Evaluations will be studied to improve programs and standards for future programs.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Youth ages 11-18 are increasingly excluding, bullying, harassing, verbally or violently assaulting each other (or the adults around them). Someone can be targeted because of social status, race, gender, sexuality or other “-isms.” The root-case problem: Our youths’ muscles for self-respect and mutual respect are not being systematically developed at home, school, in media. Youth don’t even have a healthy, universal definition of “respect.” Many believe respect can be "won" through force or humiliation. The result: Their capacity to spread respect and recover from disrespect is diminished. And this decreases their abilities to have empathy for others, value all people as equals, be leaders of social change and thrive. They must learn: respect is baseline right we all deserve and can spread.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We give youth and their influencers, life-long tools to build respect—inside and out. No matter your circumstances or past hurts, youth learn that self-respect is something you can control and invest in on you own. Our Respect Rally, 12+ week program (Respect: Keep It Going! Kit), and respect coaching model, marinate youth with respect. Daily practices and tools are taught to a school once, and then used year-after-year by all: staff, teachers, parents and students. They learn: The Respect Basics (Tell Your TRUTH, Know You’re VALUABLE, Follow Your PASSIONS, Trust Your GUT, Set BOUNDARIES-Speak up!, Be Compassionate: LISTEN, Get HELP, and Spread RESPECT). They get our root-meaning definition of respect ("to look again"). These tools are integrated through a simple-to-learn model within a school’s classrooms, after-school activities, teacher/staff training and operations.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

First we hold district-wide staff retreats to train teachers/staff how to use our tools in their own lives--they experience and use the program tools firsthand. Then we enroll youth through the day-long, experiential summit, The Respect Rally, where they break down stereotypes or boxes they’ve put each other in, and practice the new definition of respect along with The Respect Basics. Next, the entire school keeps practicing together though our Respect: Keep It Going! Kit, which includes weekly sessions, games and peer coaching tools to use at any time in the face of disrespect. Our model helps youth and their influencers re-wire their brains for respect and break habits of disrespect. It gives them a common language and “Respect Pact” to live by together. Our model is to train 5 school champions to implement and maintain the tools on their own year-after-year, making respect for all the foundation of their school culture for years to come. This is not about mottos or posters. It’s an entire community committing to practice self-respect and mutual respect daily together at every level. We are the respect piece of anyone's youth development puzzle: Our programs are designed to become their program through training and a sustainability plan that guides them through easily integrating them your organization or school’s overall culture, curriculum, online and offline spaces, and key youth development methods.

Programs like Challenge Day, Character Counts, and 30+ others we reviewed often don’t have a respect-building component beyond “civility.” Or they're “done in a day”--inspiring but shifting only some students. Our tools require just one training to use long-term and to impact all students systematically throughout the school year without interfering with precious instruction time: Respect increases productivity. We’re open source. We train “competing” program providers and leverage their brand notoriety (some have more than us at this stage) to integrate our respect remedy into their better-known youth development solution. We're a powerful plugin for other programs that want to build respect as a root-cause solution to issues like bullying or develop it as a character asset for all youth.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since September 2010, The Respect Institute has reached more than 5,500 youth and youth influencers nationally with our respect-building programs that empower them to avoid risky behaviors, increase compassion for their peers, and create healthier relationships, homes, schools, and communities. We conduct outcomes-based evaluations to document attitudes, beliefs and behaviors before and after the program. Results include:
* 90% of youth said their definition of respect shifted to include respecting themselves too, “to look again” and “I matter, you matter.”
* 86% of youth said they now had the tools to deal with bullying, cliques or abuse (up from 59%).
* 90% respected each other as equals (up from 65%).
* 82% felt equipped to make positive choices and act as role models (up from 42%).
* 88% of students agreed that The Respect Basics had given them new, better ways to practice respect for themselves and to help spread respect to others.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Through interactive programs, trained partners, and online tools, we plan to reach 50,000 youth in the U.S. over the next three years with empathy-building tools like The Respect Basics and a new definition of respect ("to look again."). After completing our 12-week program, 80% of program partners will report success in implementing our tools and programs and a notable reduction (based on their % goal) in the key indicators they identified in effecting (e.g. bullying, classroom disruption, violence) or increase in the key indicators they identified in effecting (e.g. increased compassion, healthier relationships, better communication skills, stronger support circles, ability to get help.).

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Lack of available funding, emphasis on evidenced-based programming, and packed instruction time focused on raising test scores are 3 potential barriers to our success. The current economic landscape means funding often goes to only evidenced-based programs or those that meet basic needs. We currently measure the impact of our work through outcomes-based evaluation but are completing additional pilots with university partners to establish our work as evidenced-based while not stifling our innovation. We overcome these challenges now by working with partners who are already evidence-based, working with schools that recognize our solution as an enabler of academic success, and charging program fees for private schools and corporate "respect" trainings to fund work with lower-income schools.

Starting in 2000, while editorial director of ChickClick, I read hundreds of messages daily and saw how record-numbers of girls were statistically caught in cycles of disrespect (from bullying to dating violence to school violence). I wanted to pass on my hard-won tools for building self-respect (after a childhood fraught with violence and very risky teen years). In 2005, I wrote “RESPECT,” which garnered 40,000+ girl readers. After going to a global peace conference where I sat in a circle with total strangers to make lasting changes, I wanted all teens to have safe spaces to practice The Respect Basics too. The Respect Rally and Respect: Keep It Going! Kit was born. In September 2010, The Respect Institute was founded to reach youth nationwide through trained partners, including those who are incarcerated or live in group/foster homes, and through social media.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The Rockaway peninsula faces a paucity of in-school and extracurricular programs offering artistic and socially and emotionally responsive curriculum and activities for children and teens. The arts have been largely removed from children's in and after-school time and replaced with test preparation classes that reinforce competition, repetition and unimaginative problem solving in an isolated environment. The majority of the 631 children attending PS 104 live in households that are below the poverty level and do not have access to fee-based extracurricular activities, including arts programs. Additionally, the geographically isolated peninsula makes access to such programs in other areas of Brooklyn and Queens, even if they are economically affordable, unattainable.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution, is the socially and emotionally responsive arts-based after-school program, kidsmART. This program was developed on the premise that children can only create in an environment that is safe and nurturing. Daily, staff members implement the kidsmART principles: kindness; imagination; dependability; sensitivity; motivation; acceptance; respect and tolerance in combination with a zero tolerance toward bullying protocol; a system of positive reinforcement in which children reward one another; and the acceptance of changing curriculum and program logistics in order to consistently provide the most emotionally responsive program possible. In 2006, RAA brought the then nine year old program to PS 104Q in the Bayswater section of Far Rockaway, Queens, NY. Annually, 150 children from PS 104 attend kidsmART where they receive academic assistance, participate in hands-on art projects and actively participate in conflict resolution and implementation of the kidsmART social code.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Success at kidsmART is achieved by exhibiting the social code and children doing their best at what interests them.

Our primary activities are visual arts; performing arts; science and art; games; storytelling/reading and building workshops. Children are free to choose an activity. Choices are based on interest in the medium, an affinity for an Instructor, a friend’s willingness to engage in an activity, or the simple need to be either passive or active.

At the start of each program year participants are reminded of the program principles. The most effective manner to do this is through role play which offers concrete examples in a playful manner. kidsmART maintains a zero tolerance to bullying platform. We created a safe space for victims to come forward, seek solutions confidentially or to confront the child they feel is bullying them. Our protocol actively engages childre requiring them to explore their feelings, actions and to recognize the consequence their words and actions have on others. By providing a nonjudgmental space for children to work out conflicts and to learn how to actively listen, find their voices, and build friendships kidsmART cultivates a truly empathic environment.

Here workshops in the visual and performing arts lend themselves to increasing children’s self-esteem, exploration of their own and other’s emotions and a variety of appropriate modalities to express those emotions. Finally, via collaborative projects children engage in a social experience that is noncompetitive and is based to a large part on their direction.

Peers and competitors include other NYC and 21st Century funded after-school programs including, CHAMPS and Safe Space who also offer programs to students in PS 104. Co-existing with these programs for the past 5 years, we have found that the other programs do not pose a challenge to our success or growth. Those programs typically draw children from families who require 5 days per week of after-school care (kidsmART offers 4 days per week due to budgetary constraints) or children whose primary interest is athletics. The majority of children who have participated in kidsmART and the other programs prefer kidsmART due to kidsmART's holistic approach and focus on children's emotional/social well-being. There is always a waiting list for entrance and the program serves 75+ children per day.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Children most strongly impacted by kidsmART are those who hold a significant interest in the arts; are frequently victims of bullying; have special needs; suffer poverty and/or neglect; are being raised in households where one or both parents are absent; and/or are recent immigrants. By providing a safe space for children to creatively express their emotions and succeed artistically we have witnessed increased self-esteem and a greater willingness among children and their parents to seek positive solutions to conflicts.

kidsmART is dedicated to working with children with special needs from learning disorders to diagnoses on the Autism spectrum. We are one of the only mainstream NYC funded after-school programs admitting children with special needs and creating curriculum that enables them to engage creatively and gain social skills they may use outside of the program. Parents state that the impact this hands-on learning experience has in their children’s lives is tremendous.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We intend to sustain our current impact in Rockaway, providing services to approximately 380 children annually in the after-school program at PS 104Q and in Fort Tilden. We have begun planning for an additional after-school site in PS 146Q in Howard Beach, Queens. RAA will run two preliminary series of workshops this spring and then proceed toward building a program at this site in the fall. Other plans for growth include a program for teens that will be based upon the kidsmART principles, but primarily conceived by young people (age 14-17) who attended kidsmART and/or volunteered or worked at the program. Youth involvement and leadership will be paramount to the construction and implementation of this program. Teens began meeting with Directors to share ideas in summer 2011.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A lack of resources on the part of PS 146Q could hinder the success of an after-school program at that site. RAA has already applied for and secured funding. An NYS Office of Children & Family Services grant for supplies and materials for after-school programming has already been secured; talks have begun with Citibank regarding funding; income from camp tuition has been slated for use in support of the after-school initiative.

Barriers that hinder the success of projects with teens include their already crowded schedules, peer pressure and work obligations. We are working to overcome these obstacles by asking teens to create schedules for the program; opportunities for community beautification projects that fulfill community service hours and perhaps providing nonmonetary rewards.

Noah screamed. Someone touched his project & he was upset. Noah was creative, but had ADHD. His dad was disabled. There was little money. kidsmART staff coaxed him out from under the table & explained the next steps: Calm down, talk it out, apologize, pick up the beads. Noah came back. He yelled. He was protective of his artwork. Staff showed children how to respect Noah & his artwork. They worked with Noah on proper ways to communicate.

Noah came to kidsmART for years. He made sculptures of characters he called Buppies.

In 2009, kidsmART funding was slashed. A rally was held. Noah took the floor.

“I love coming here. I used to not listen. Here they listen to me. No one let’s anyone get picked on. When I made a Buppy, John the drawing teacher said it was cool. I’m selling my Buppies. The money goes to kidsmART. There’s more kids like me who need kidsmART.”

Noah raised $73. The Directors said he could buy art supplies, but he put it in the donation box.

Crescimento (seu piloto está em andamento e começa a se expandir)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Em execução entre 1 e 5 anos

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

We are bringing awareness to bullying and cyber-bullying. We are trying to reduce the instances of bullying and reduce the instances of bullycide.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We provide presentations and educational sessions to students as well as adults that have interactions with teens and pre-teens. We hope that by providing presentations to middle schools and high schools the youth can see the impact it has on their community. In addition, we hope that it shows those that might be bullied that they aren't alone and somebody is always there for them.

The parent and adult sessions outline the warning signs of bullying and ways to help a teen or pre-teen that might be bullied or has been bullied.

Both cover the bullying statistics and depending on the age group for the teens, it also covers the LGBT youth. (Lesbian, gay, Bi-sexual and transgender).

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

For the Teens and Pre-Teens:
Our presentations start with a slide show showing past youth who have committed suicide due to bullying. It is set to music and right now features approximately 25 youth ages 11-19.

We then send a tweet out at the beginning to demonstrate the immediacy and reach of cyber-bullying. Hope for Teens then presents a PowerPoint presentation that lasts approximately an hour and allows for questions and answers. We then make sure we allow for another 30 minutes to an hour for those that have questions but don't want to ask in public forum.

For the Parents and Adults:
We start the presentations the same way with the slideshow of those that have committed suicide due to bullying.
We then go on to explain the presentations we show to the teens and answer any questions that they might have based on their teens reaction to their presentation.
Afterwards, the adults see a PowerPoint presentation on the warning signs of bullying and how they can help their child. This includes statistics on bullying and who are the most common youth bullied.

Any of these presentations are held at schools, youth organizations or upon request.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Our peers would include the following: The Trevor Project, GLSEN, LGBT Center of Raleigh, and in the United Kingdom there is an organization called Beat Bullying. We do not have any competitors because we are the ONLY non-profit in Wake County specifically dedicated to youth and anti-bullying efforts.

If there is a non-profit that starts due to the success of Hope for Teens then we will have competition. Since we are the first in our niche our experience and knowledge would counter-act any potential competitors.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

To date we have received positive feedback from schools that have had us do presentations. In addition, we have had many teens or pre-teens speak up about bullying to us, their parents or somebody in their school.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Over the next 1-3 years we hope to see a decrease in the number of bullying incidents that occur in schools or over the internet. We also hope to get out to more schools and on a recurring basis so that we can capture all youth in the general area.

In addition, we hope that the school systems will assist in our efforts of taking bullying and cyber-bullying seriously and be more pro-active in their approach instead of reactive.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The biggest barrier we have to our success would be schools not taking bullying or cyber-bullying seriously. If the schools do not take it seriously the perpetuate the idea that it isn't something to be concerned about.

By providing statistics and showing the community how devastating bullying can be on a community as a whole, we hope that schools and youth based organizations will take bullying and cyber-bullying more seriously.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

When teen Tyler Clementi jumped off of the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey he was the 12th teen to take their life in six weeks back in 2010.

Mr. Clementi took a piece of the founder's childhood that day. Growing up in Manhattan she would watch the light on top of the George Washington Bridge & it would help her fall asleep since she was 3 years old. Now that bridge held more than pleasant memories and something needed to be done.

That was when we realized there were no anti-bullying resources specific to teens in Wake County and decided one had to be started. We then realized that our impact could be so much more and not to limit just to Wake County and we are open to assisting in any county in any state.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Young people become skilled at listening to others and more confident when they have an ongoing experience of being listened to. External pressures impel schools to organise themselves around the assumption that listening to young people is a distraction from their core task of transmitting knowledge and achieving examination results. These pressures are likely to be strongest on schools working with young people in families where economic and social challenges make listening hard to sustain. As a result, the young people who most need to be listened to are least likely to have that experience at school.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We have designed a school improvement process, the PROGRESS Programme, that works by listening to staff and students. It then channels their creative energies into shaping a culture where high-quality listening is integral to the whole of school life. Our online exploration process enables staff and students to be open about their experience. The feedback we generate from their data enables the whole community to really hear what different groups think and feel. As people take part in structured conversations about how to make teaching and learning even better, they become more aware of each other and more focused on improving their own lives by improving things for others.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

We delivered the PROGRESS Programme at a secondary school where staff and students recognized that poor classroom behavior led to dull teaching.
Our surveys and facilitated conversations show that students felt staff had no time for them and did not care about them. Staff revealed that the churn of new initiatives sometimes left them feeling deflated.
We fed back to the whole school community how students’ misinterpretation of staff commitment to innovative work set in motion a self-perpetuating cycle of student disaffection leading to staff frustration, with everyone becoming less able to listen to each other. We used this account to elicit staff and student ideas for making things better.
Staff agreed to put aside time for building stronger relationships with each other as part of a process designed to reduce their stress levels and enable them to respond meaningfully to their students. The students came up with a wide range of ideas for shaping a more interesting experience of learning through an ongoing dialogue with teachers.
A year later, staff and students reported that the implementation of these ideas had led a 20% improvement in their capacity to understand each other and work effectively together.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

We work collaboratively with peer organisations that share a commitment to promoting a system where every young person’s voice can be heard and have influence. Our competitors are improvement consultancies and providers of surveys. We differ from them in how deep our surveys explore people’s experience of school, and the way we deploy the emerging data as a catalyst to change. Our main challenge comes from schools prefering a less demanding processe to one that achieve the level of change possible from really listening to the experience of the whole school community.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Delivery of the Programme in around 100 schools has led to improvements in student attendance (because they liked school) and staff wellbeing (because they experienced lower stress), and up to 25% improvement in student’s test scores within one year. We can demonstrate that the dimensions of school life which we measure and shift are predictive of improved achievement, the goal of education authorities around the world. We have shown that involving all staff and students in diagnosing what is happening now, and developing a strategy for making it even better, is key to effective change.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Many more students becoming engaged by learning and discovering how they can achieve. This will be the result of policy-makers, opinion-formers and the wider public recognizing that the most powerful source of school improvement is the capacity of staff and students together to generate creative ideas, through an honest and collaborative exploration of their current experience, leading to creative discussions about what would make it even better. This would lead to the demise of the idea that imposing externally-developed solutions can lead to young people developing through school the capacity to experience themselves as flourishing contributors to a vibrant society.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Educational stakeholders tend to be suspicious of the idea that effective solutions can be generated by staff and students. The fear these will inevitably lead to a decline in achievement. We plan to shift these suspicions by developing a talked-about video game (for which we are seeking funding currently) that demonstrates through imaginary scenarios the consequences on adults, children and young people of different ways of managing schools, and navigates users toward inspiring real-life stories of successful change that came from inside the school community.

From my study window, I saw a boy scratching the paintwork on the cars in the street. My instinct was to run downstairs and tell him to stop. I realized that I would probably be adding to the futile message he heard all day: do what we are asking you to do; stop doing what you are currently doing. That would not enable him to understand the anger he expressed with his screwdriver, or shift him to a state of mind that was positive and playful. Realizing that there was no good way in that moment to approach him, I resolved to look for a way of helping to shape a school system that would be more interested in understanding than in controlling.

*Whenever I design & conceptualize solutions, I try to visualize for myself the long lasting effect it would have if it is happening to me.

And with empathy it started there, I was becoming more blasé & uncaring, so as not to exert so much effort any more & people are reacting differently to me bacause of it, it is not me.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

YAB focuses on solving communal issues through peer-to-peer networking and advocacy. Youth do not have the support and knowledge in our community on issues concerning stress, relationships, emotional well-being, and sexual education. We feel that the adults, from parents to teachers, are not aware of what youth are experiencing in our lives as we navigate this developmental stage. Additionally, we feel that many youth at Balboa High School are unaware of the health resources available at the Balboa Teen Health Center. It's up to the YAB to reach out to the Balboa High School community of students, parents, teachers, and staff in fun, creative, and meaningful ways to foster dialogue and collaborative solutions to the issues facing youth.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The YAB will use Forum Theatre, developed by Augusto Boal, as a tool to engage the school community in dialogue on issues relevant to young people's lives. What makes Forum Theatre unique from other types of drama performances is that this type of drama is participatory. The audience will be able to participate in a dialogue about the problems they see in the skit and will develop several solutions to these problems. Also, the audience will be able to participate in the skit by rehearsing real-life solutions in the scenarios with the youth performers.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

I will describe what the YAB did in their last Forum Theatre performance. There were two YAB who acted as the facilitators during a skit on bullying; the other YAB were involved as youth performers. We see our young person "Deandre" and what a typical day is like for him at home and school. He lives at home with parents and a sister who goes to the same school. During the course of the day, the audience sees "Deandre" not wanting to go to school, being bullied by another student, not having friends, and not feeling supported. When the skit ended, the facilitators processed what occurred in the skit, discussed the outcome, and asked the audience how they would change the negative outcome into a more positive outcome, and invited them down to perform the skit as they envision it with the new outcome. Using Forum Theatre has the audience act as “spect-actor,” offering solutions to the problem, and empowering the audience in applying solutions to their own real-life situations. We did three separate Forum Theatre events (two during the school day and one evening event for parents and the community) and they were all different. Each dramatic outcome was unique due to the audience participating in developing solutions towards a more positive outcome.

The San Francisco Mime Troupe has a Youth Theater Project. One of our YAB was part of this troupe. They do not use Forum Theatre, but use other forms of theatre and work at their own site. We consulted with the San Francisco Mime Troupe when the YAB first started doing youth theater about three years ago. They provided theater training (acting games/warm-up, skit brainstorming, skit development)for our YAB. Kaiser Permanente has an educational theatre program component that is health focused and more of a traditional drama performance. We also consulted them in the early days of YAB starting drama performances (brainstorming). We don't view either group as a competitor. With San Francisco Mime troupe, we have an on-going relationship with them to provide theater training expertise.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We had close nearly 150 people in our school's Little Theatre for our last theatre performance on March 2nd. Feedback forms from our last theatre performance on March 2nd showed that the audience wanted to continue the dialogue and they enjoyed the youth performers. Additionally, the school principal recently told me that he would like YAB to do teacher training on working with gender issues. The youth performers want to do more of these Forum Theatre and these may replace the parent workshop series that the Balboa Teen Health Center currently offers to parents.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We hope to do more Forum Theatre performances and reach out to the entire school population (approximately 1200 students) every year. Also, hope to engage more teachers and families in Forum Theatre. Over time, we hope to invite other schools to our Forum Theatre performances.

Forum Theater works best in a small venue. We did ours in the Little Theatre at the school which is why we had small numbers. We hope that we can do several Forum Theatre events over the course of a school year rather than just one so that more people can see it.

This was my first time doing Forum Theatre. I was so impressed with the uniqueness of the solutions from the three different performances. It really speaks to how this type of theatre is "audience-centered" and can have a huge impact on the members. Having Forum Theatre in a small venue created the ideal setting for dialogue and active participation from the audience. This type of drama makes the audience members feel appreciated, valued, and acknowledged. When the facilitators concluded the drama, the audience responded by saying "Aww!" That meant that they wanted to keep the dialogue going on and developing even more positive solutions! Having youth as the youth performers who created the skit and acted on stage adds to the reality of what is happening in young people's lives and adds visibility to their roles as peer health educators in the Balboa High School community. The YAB felt really good about the work they did and received a lot of compliments from the audience.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The children of this generation are growing up in the most intensely stimulating time in the history of the Earth; computers, phones, and hundreds of TV channels are delivering excessive amounts of distracting information, often resulting in a child’s inability to stay focused. Our schools are based on old standardized testing and curricula demanding focus, conformity, and a specific performance by our children. Little movement toward a change, has created students who are bored, angry, and stressed, becoming chronically disengaged in school. Thousands of our children struggle just to make it through a day - bullying, suicide, drugs are prominent in almost every city in the U.S. crossing all socioeconomic boundaries. The term at-risk applies to more youth each day.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Empathy, integrity, respect, self worth can not be taught by way of lecture, reading books or test taking, yet these are some of the most important components in helping a child navigate through their school years. Our program has been specifically designed to help youth identify their often misunderstood emotions and underlying feelings in such a way that it brings a rapid transformation to their life. The work is based on the experiential learning process. Our goal is to collaborate with schools, establishing Emotional Education as a mandatory class for all 7th & 8th grade students. The emotional roller coasters that the youth are going through at this age can be confusing and distracting. Their “empathy meter” is very low, often focusing only on themselves, and yet their ability to conceptualize the ideas presented in our program are at a high point for retention. Their hearts & minds are craving answers to the many questions of who they are, where they fit in, & how to get along.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The youth who participate in our programs find that when they have a safe space to share their story, speak their truth, and trust, they are able to free up a lot of the hidden anger and pain. “When I came to the AYM program I got here with beliefs that I was good for nothing, and other horrible thoughts that were all piled up inside of me. I learned that when you share your feelings with other people that care, you feel a great relief inside your heart. I learned that everyone has a purpose in life, and that not everything is your fault. I learned that it’s important to care for one another.” Paloma, age 14.
Two day workshop + Curriculum: A structured 16 hour program that involves group and individual experiential processes, one on one, small & large group sharing, self discovery, and team building.
Staff Workshop:  Empathy, compassion, trust, integrity starts at the top. AYM supports the principal, staff and teachers to “be the example” of empathy and integrity by encouraging participation during our 2-day program with the youth, and through their own workshop.
Curriculum: The Emotional Education class is required as part of the program, and is taught by an AYM certified teacher who will follow the experiential curriculum. The topics are discussed, acted out, expressed through art or writing, and experienced through game playing or processes.
Service: Youth are invited and encouraged to volunteer at AYM. Toward the end of the school year they will be able to practice the empathy they have developed through a community project of their choosing.

An Organization called “Teen Challenge Day” a one day seminar, does similar work to ours, yet they lack the follow-through and long term results that we have been able to produce. The CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning) program is an effective program along the same lines of experiential learning through interactive processes, yet we believe through our research that they are only focused on the elementary schools, where we are focused on Middle Schools and High Schools. We believe a collaboration with any program that focuses on the betterment of a young person can produce success for all involved. No two solutions are exactly the same, so we don’t see any programs that will hinder our growth.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since our inception in 2009 we have worked with almost 1,000 youth. Lives have changed in many ways. Nidia Castro, the principal at a Los Angeles Unified School said, “AYM was on our campus on 3 separate occasions, each for the duration of an entire weekend. I have been in education for almost 20 years, and by far, the AYM program has been one of the most impacting experiences a student can go through.” "I have to admit I was moved when I debriefed the experience with some of the students. More importantly, the formal dinner and the parent event were the most touching moments because you see every student so emotionally transparent and vulnerable. Yet, the level of respect, support and appreciation they demonstrated for one another was phenomenal.” “Since then what has been observed by the dean of discipline and their teachers is simply amazing.” Our graduates have reported improved communication with their peers & families, better understanding of who they are, and a new found peace

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Our goal is to work with 600 youth a year, so in the next 3 years 1,800 youth will have experienced this work. When we can focus like this in a specific school district to start, there will be a radical change, what we call a saturation of transformation. The first year we will pilot our curriculum in a school and by year two we will expand into three other schools. By our third year we will be able to produce statistics that will allow us to show the impact that this work has on the student, the school, their families and the community.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Our two barriers we have right now are getting the word out about what we do, and creating sustainable funding. We have started work with the Benevon System to establish more connections with private individuals, the public, and corporations, in creating yearly, lifelong donors. Using Benevon’s specific plans, our goal by the end of this year is to have 20 new “founding members” of our organization, committed to expanding the work.

The first time I was asked to participate in a workshop for teens I was hesitant, because I believed teens would not be easy to work with. Then I watched the most magical thing happen. I saw kids who were shut down, angry, shy, and resistant to authority, completely turn around in two days! I cried because I knew that the difference we just made was so much bigger than me, so much more than the work I had been doing with adults in the past 15 years.
Awakening Young Minds was created and established as a non profit soon after. Our first program included youth from the local boys home, and probation. The resistance was high. One young man shared his story of pain, abuse, abandonment, gang life, and drug use. He said that no one had ever said things to him like we did, and he asked for help. We invited him to complete the program so he could be an “AYM Angel” volunteer & he has been with us since. There are many more “aha” moments, stories that could fill a book, & many more yet to be.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

I am trying to solve the issue of empowering the African girl child by encouraging emotional development and self confidence.
young girls are going to be our mothers of the future and they are naturally poised for empathy, but when there are certain factors that hinder the African girl child from becoming who she desires to be based on traditions and culture in her immediate environment, she is different from the other girl child because her environment is hostile and loaded with constraints. there are ways that BEE ALIVE GIRLS CLUB has chosen to instill empathy in the African girl child living under hostile conditions, that is why we have chosen entrepreneurial skills.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

To empower the African girl child and make her confident in herself, only a confident and self reliant young girl can express empathy to her family and friends living in her immediate environment.
self reliance and empowerment are major tools needed to facilitate instilling empathy in the girl child especially in continents like Africa.We are passionate about giving the African girl child the ability to be heared and own her voice, become more confident and gain self respect.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

We are using the ONE GIRL ONE WORD PROJECT model.This project seeks to identify young girls within the age bracket of 12-20 years and are in their formative years in my school, we counsel them and offer sessions where they are asked about their aspirations and dreams for their future. After this we offer them trainings through entrepreneurial skills especially through beekeeping. We are using a model wherein we weave a leadership training programme for 24 weeks where we teach girls to become more self confident and more self reliant and we encourage them to believe in them selves.

I discovered the solution to reducing social strife and lack of empathy when security issues began to emerge in my country through the boko haram sect that was affiliated to Al Qaeda. It was speculated that wives of poor citizens pushed their husbands and brothers to become suicide bombers, and i discovered that this was simply borne out of a lack of empathy of these women to their family members who were meant to be loved by them. I then saw a need to change the orientation and thinking of the girl child inoder to show more kindness and empathy in their environment. But this can only be done by showing them alternative ways to get out of poverty. This is why we are focusing on the girl child

Implementado há menos de um ano

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Isn’t compassion for wimps? Don’t you have to be ruthless to succeed in life? Does caring for others really make you less stressed? Is everyone capable of feeling empathy? How do gang members become peacemakers?

These are the daily concerns of modern teenagers when it comes to empathy.

Mind with Heart aims to make empathy a challenging focus of investigation for teenagers, starting from their own concerns, so they can build up their own curiosity about this human experience and come to a personal conviction of its benefits to oneself and to others.

Too often teenagers have no space to explore these questions and no access to information designed for their age group.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Mind with Heart facilitates meetings between teenagers, including youth at risks, and the world’s leading experts on empathy and compassion, such as scientists, thinkers and changemakers.

The Empathy and Compassion in Society Youth Conference is an opportunity for 350 teens to take part in this life-changing experience.
The event will take place on 22 November 2012 at the Southbank Centre, near Westminster in London, UK.

The youth conference is based on our curriculum and a pilot carried out last year: Young people prepare their own questions in advance, starting from where they are at. The interviews are filmed, and edited into short videos designed to initiate debates in schools. The young people who did the interview go back to their schools and present the videos in assemblies. The videos are widely available to schools through the internet.

The project uses media and tools that appeals to young people: science, celebrities, video materials, and social media.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Mind with Heart has piloted the project by facilitating two unique interviews last year:

In June 2011, students from the Family Life Centre near San Francisco interview Dr Paul Ekman, pioneer in the study of emotions, and internationally renowned for training government officials in emotion recognition.

In September 2011, young Londoners from Bethnal Green Academy and Hampton School interview Matthieu Ricard, the Buddhist monk that popular media named the happiest man in the world.

The videos have already gathered over 10,000 views in less than 6 months. You can view the videos on the Mind with Heart channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/MindwithHeartchannel?feature=watch

The speakers at the Youth Conference will include neuroscientist and empathy specialist Tania Singer, theologian Karen Armstrong, initiator of the Charter for Compassion (tbc), co-founder of Action for Happiness and headmaster of Wellington College Anthony Seldon, and Yotam Heineberg, who works with gang members-turned-peacemakers.

As well as giving the students involved a life-changing experience, and involving their whole school in learning about empathy, the project allows schools internationally to access free educational materials.

The project is based on the experience of Mind with Heart in running workshops on empathy for teenagers.

We plan to organise other such youth conferences in other countries to broaden the range of interviewees, and of schools involved.

See http://compassioninsociety.org/index.php/youth-gathering for details.

This project is designed to meet a specific need of the lack of widely available information suited to teenagers about empathy, and to complement other empathy education initiatives.

While other Mind with Heart projects use a participatory educational approach and encourage young people to make their own observations and draw their own conclusions, we feel there is equally a need to give access to quality information on empathy, that can be tested against personal experience.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

With the 10 videos already produces, we receive feedback from teachers saying that just having access to the videos encourages them to focus teir social and emotional learning classes, tutor groups and assemblies on empathy, when they would have not felt able to address this topic before.

Mind with Heart has also held debates and workshops so far with:
- 10 citizenship or literature or philosophy classes in secondary schools in France and Australia
- 2 groups in a programme for teens dropping out of school in Montpellier
- 4 youth clubs in France and Australia
Each group has benefited from about 10 hours each.

With the 2012 Empathy and Compassion in Society Youth Conferences, and the videos, we aim to encourage self-facilitated debates in 10 new schools in the academic year 2012/13, 20 in the year 2013/2014 and 40 in 2014/2015.

Mind with Heart will organise an inspirational international Youth Conference on Empathy and Compassion in Society every two years in a different country.

Schools are encouraged to organise their own conferences and debates.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

To create a maximum impact, Mind with Heart projects are designed to necessitate light infrastructure, facilitate partnership work, complement other educational initiatives and be widely accessible through the internet.

The challenge for small organisations is funding. Youth Conferences and video production will be mainly funded by the professional conference that they are connected to.

For 15 years, I searched for creative ways to inspire people to live together sustainably. I was an educator for sustainable development.

Over that period, I was also attracted by the Dalai Lama's call for universal responsibility, and met educators passionate about the human mind, how it colours our perception and creates havoc.

One day, in 2009, I witnessed the 8-year-old son of a school friend of mine, who had just passed away, hitting yet again his younger brother. « One who loves himself will never harm another ». The meaning of this quote dawned on me. Finding non-dogmatic ways to help remove our misunderstandings about self-esteem, self-compassion, and empathy, that's the challenge. And it could well be the key to our survival as a species.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Just about every parent or caregiver out there has said to a child, “you know better than that!”. But how are we helping our kids know better? What in their media is helping them become well rounded, compassionate citizens of the world poised to take on the responsibilities of being the next generation? What kind of messages and behavior examples are they absorbing in the TV they watch? Parents, caregivers and KIDS need better choices for their media consumption.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The Effect’s mission is to provide kids with positive and socially conscious programming that is awesomely entertaining and cool. The Effect takes kids out of their usual environment and exposes them to the lives of others in their community and all over the world. The program is created out of the belief that the media we consume becomes a part of us and we want to give kids something positive. We are all born with a natural capacity for empathy and like a muscle it must be exercised to stay strong. Within an entertaining mystery this show will engage kids’ empathy and enlighten them to real issues in their community and all over the world. Please note the title of the show is in the process of changing from The Know Better Effect to The Effect.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Throughout the season, the mysteries of the box are slowly revealed through clues and experiences – keeping the viewers engaged, and coming back for more. Every episode will give kids an opportunity to better understand important issue such as: Homelessness, Autism, Diabetes, Bullying, Military Families, Natural Disasters, Childhood Illness, Environment, Physical Disability, Hunger, Growing Old, Literacy, Schools in Need, Water, Immigration, Understanding Different Cultures… The viewers will be allowed into the worlds of people they may never otherwise have the opportunity to interact with. These organic and real interactions will open the eyes and hearts of all involved. The characters will be challenged by choices and realize those choices have an effect on themselves and others. At the end of the show viewers will have been entertained and empathically engaged.

Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

To my knowledge there are no programs that combine fictional and non-fictional plotlines for the tween audience. The programming for tweens in general is lacking any sort of substance. There is wonderful media for pre-schoolers and for teens but unfortunately for our tweens, they are in a wasteland. GenerationOn does a great job reaching kids that are already motivated to help - but I do not look at them as competition but an opportunity to collaborate. The Effect will reach kids already motivated and motivate those on the sidelines. Competition for the tween viewing audience would be Disney and Nickelodeon though our programming goals are very different.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The show is a wonderful tool for parents, teachers and caregivers to teach kids about community and world issues in an entertaining and fun way. Kids have proven time and time again that once they see and understand a need, they are compelled to help. We have inspired kids to get more involved in their communities . I have also founded KBDB, Inc (501C3 status pending) to help kids put empathy into action through offering volunteer opportunities and eventually small grants to help them start their own initiatives.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

To reach kids nationally and then globally. First get the show into syndication, next get format rights into international distribution. Update the website to allow a social community for kids to discuss the mystery of The Effect and the social issues of the show. Episodes from all over the world could be linked together on the website allowing kids to see worldwide the effect of empathy.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Money. I have to find funding for production. Every network and distribution company I have approached loves the concept but fears it is not commercial enough. (I DISAGREE) I need this grant to hire a consultant to help me put together a fantastic sponsorship package to get this show funded and to our kids.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

My most important job is being mom. My husband and I have been blessed with 3 fantastic kids. Our goal as parents is to raise people that are compassionate and live in light. Trying to live by example, I do a lot of volunteering...I thought they got it. Then 4 yrs ago I was giving the "you have no idea how lucky you are..." speech and I realized they just don't get it - yet. That night I couldn't sleep so I went to Google in search of a program to give them a visual to reinforce the ideals of compassion & understanding. To my shock, I could not find anything. That's when a lifetime of experiences led me to create The Effect.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Practice Makes Perfect (PMP) was conceived on the premise that all children—regardless of race or socioeconomic status—have equal potential to compete intellectually in our society. According to the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA), the 2/3 of the achievement gap is attributed to the lack of learning that takes place over the summer. The US Census estimates that by 2023 minority children will comprise more than 50% of the school-aged population. In 2009, McKinsey and Company analyzed the achievement disparity and concluded that the inequity in education costs the US between $310 billion and $525 billion each year, which is the economic equivalent of a permanent national recession. The achievement gap is most prevalent in minority and low-income households.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

PMP pairs underachieving 4th graders with high-achieving 9th graders within the same inner-city communities under the supervision of college interns for a seven-week academic intensive summer program. PMP prevents the summer learning loss and makes gains by operating a 30-day summer program that provides over 180 hours of structured mentorship and tutoring for elementary school and high school students.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

PMP pairs two 4th graders with one 9th grader to engage in practice problems throughout the course of the summer. College interns lead refresher lessons before the 4th graders start working on the problems. The two-on-one model enables the protégés to participate in peer-to-peer teaching while at the same time learning from the mentor. Oftentimes, one protégé will be more proficient in an area and willing to teach concepts in which they are familiar to their peer, helping to reinforce what they themselves have learned. During most mornings, the 4th graders are given a spelling test or an assessment exam that allows the 9th graders to work with the college interns on goal setting, critical reading, and SAT preparation. The benefits are threefold: 1) The 4th graders are given positive role models to inspire them and change their career trajectory 2) The 9th graders are provided with an incredible learning experience that will distinguish them from their peers as they apply to college 3) The college students become more informed about the inner-workings of a classroom and have experiences to leverage for a full-time job.

PMP does not have any direct competitors and has three distinct factors that differentiate it: 1) PMP is the only organization that pairs high-achieving 9th graders with underachieving 4th graders 2) The majority of the instruction is delivered by 9th graders, providing them with an unparalleled experience 3) PMP has a three-tiered impact. First, Teenagers will be employed; Second, interns will gain experience that is relevant to their academic study, and third, there are three levels of mentorship—1) college students to high school students 2) high school students to elementary school students 3) elementary school students to each other.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Last summer, PMP operated a pilot program in Queens, NY to validate its business model. PMP paired 32 underachieving 4th graders with 16 high-achieving 9th graders under the supervision of 5 college interns. Through rigorous math, reading, and writing practice, students raised their reading comprehension levels by 4% and math levels by 6% on mock NYS assessment exams—while combating a summer learning loss, which according to the National Summer Learning Association for students in low-income households is more than two and a half months (or between 20% - 30%). After factoring in the summer learning loss, gains on average are as much as 24% - 34% in reading and 26% - 36% in math.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

This summer, PMP is committed to operating four programs that will impact over 200 students across NYC, which is 300% larger than the previous summer. After another successful summer, we hope to take the PMP model to other inner-city neighborhoods across the United States. Within the next three years, we hope to scale our impact to run 10 or more PMP summer programs at one time.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Funding could be the largest constraint to our growth. In its first year of operation, PMP relied mostly on funding from individual donors in the form of gifts and grants. In the future, PMP aims to cover its administrative costs through grants and the operating expenses paid for by the school, community, or local municipality. Schools that receive Title I funding through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 must make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in test scores. Under the No Child Left Behind Act, if a school misses AYP then they face decreased funding. Those schools will be solicited to implement and fund a program.

Three of the five founders attended inner-city public schools and understand well that with the proper guidance and resources that attending college is possible. When PMP made it standing after pitching the idea to 100+ individuals, that was a sign that there was a need and the model could be an effective means of intervention. Before actually testing our original beliefs, we were ignorant to the impact a program like PMP could have both domestically and internationally. After eliminating a ~25% learning loss and making gains of 4% in reading and 6% in math based on mock New York State Assessment Exams, it was apparent that PMP has the potential to transform hundreds, if not thousands of inner-city classrooms worldwide.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

We live in a world where most young people have very few outlets to express their unique voice. In schools, communities and society at large they are not treated equally and instead are discriminated against because of their age, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, ability, sexual orientation, gender identification, or socioeconomic situation. Despite this, how do we create a space for them that empowers them to make a difference in their own lives and carry that change into the greater community and the broader the world? How do we level the societal playing field?

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Brooklyn Free School (BFS) and its students comprise an environment of unprecedented diversity, students are not segregated by age, sex, or ability, and they are respected for their innate curiosity, empathy, and creativity. They are given the space and trust to direct their own learning through play and exploration, constructivist teaching, collaborative course work, and self-directed student initiatives.

BFS's program is run democratically, with the democratic meeting at its core. Weekly meetings allow for safe environments where students respond to the circumstances of their lives, using tools like the conflict mediation, personal reflection, diversity awareness, and community responsibility to develop empathy and solve individual and community issues in a natural way.

In addition, BFS conducts identity workshops with staff, parents, and students where ideas, thoughts, and feelings are explored and shared.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Dee had been working hard on building her train track for over an hour, and it only took two seconds for Ty, pretending to be a tornado, to wreck it. Dee was upset and she tried to tell Ty, but he said he didn't care. "It was fun being a tornado.", he said. So Dee she called a meeting.

At Brooklyn Free School when an issue arises that cannot be solved by the individual, the individual asks for help. Help can come from peers, small groups or the whole community. During the meeting, students and staff sit in a circle so that everyone can be seen and heard. Dee explained why she called the meeting. Students asked if Ty understood how Dee felt, and they pressed Ty to explain how he would feel if he were in Dee's place. The meeting ended with a suggestion to repair the damage to the tracks together, and this hopefully leads to a more contained tornado next time.

Cooperative play and the space to learn from real situations are such important aspects of BFS, for students of all ages, empathetic reasoning is called upon daily while they learn how to work together and examine how they fit into the school as a larger community. Through these regular interactions, students develop concrete tools that enable them to readily resolve conflicts, both in and out of school.

Manhattan Free School (MFS), GreeneHill School, and Brooklyn Waldorf School are other schools with child-centered curriculum.

Only MFS shares a similar genesis and goals as Brooklyn Free School (BFS). However, BFS is more established and twice the size of MFS and is located a reasonable distance away, so we only compete for students in some areas of NYC that border Brooklyn.

BFS has created a unique niche for itself in terms of a truly diverse school where students are empowered to be themselves, trusted to pursue their interests, and encouraged to solve their problems and those of their community using the democratic process.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Our biggest impact is with our over 200 current and former students. Parents comment that their children love school, develop a powerful voice, and learn valuable skills that they use in every aspect of their life. As one young student explained, "although life isn't fair, it doesn't mean that we can't make our school fair."

In order to spread our mission, Brooklyn Free School co-founded the Democratic Education Symposium with Medgar Evers College to create a dialog among parents, students, educators, and community leaders about the role of democracy in education.

Our community has taken trips to other schools, most memorably to Tanzania.

Sparked interest in our program from people worldwide after being featured on This American Life, ep.424:Kid Politics.

We supported the creation and development of Manhattan Free School and Teddy McArdle Free School.

BFS contributed to the creation of the National Association of Democratic Schools and has organized an annual conference.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Brooklyn Free School will continue to grow by expanding to 75 students, incorporating a preschool, and maintaining an after school program that is offered to students not enrolled in BFS.

We will market our unique model of education through educational outreach, producing an annual TEDx event with themes focused on democratic education, offering tours and talks through Meetup.com, and continuing to attend and organize conferences.

BFS will continue to sponsor local events that incorporate the greater community.

We will continue and expand our Intern Program that welcomes students and educators from around the world into the school to learn and participate in democratic education.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The biggest threat to the success of our program is an inability to maintain our diversity. Our diversity is affected by our ability to reach out to potential students and their families, as well as fiscal requirements that tighten our capacity to offer a sliding scale of tuition, allowing Brooklyn Free School to be more accessible to all.

To overcome these potential obstacles, we have employed a Diversity Coordinator who facilitates dialog within the program among students, staff, and parents and assists in the self exploration of our mission. Also, we will generate revenue and supplement our sliding scale tuition through expansion into early childhood education and extended day programs.

What really got me was a story in the New York Times in 2002 that described a student at Sudbury Valley School who went fishing at their pond every day for four years! That made me rethink everything. I began to understand how powerful a school experience would be if students were trusted to pursue their passions with the full support of the teachers and administrators. I imagined a school where students could be respected and supported for who they are and be encouraged to become who they wanted to be. A school where students would build a community together and were given the tools they needed to respect, listen to, and honor each other as individuals, as they figured out how to live and learn together.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In most schools around the United States, classrooms have a minimum of 20 students per teacher. This discourages the development of meaningful connections between students, their teachers, and their peers. The individuality of every student can’t logistically be nurtured. When problems develop, resolutions are immediate consequences. There isn’t time to use problems as opportunities to cultivate socio-emotional growth. In an environment in which the individuality of every child is not developed, students aren’t able to be who they really are. In turn, they lose valuable opportunities to learn about their role and the roles of others in the world.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Family. It’s a word that is associated with positivity. With family, we are loved. With family, we are safe. With family, we can be exactly who we are while receive the nurturing necessary to help us develop into who we’re meant to become. At The Kindezi School, every child is at home due to our family sized classrooms. Having only 6 students to every teacher affords the chance to foster the acquisition of true socio-emotional learning. At The Kindezi School, problems are opportunities to learn about ourselves sand others. Every student has a voice and they are encouraged to use it. Through the balanced application of academic press and support, our students are becoming thoughtful, empathetic, and meaningful citizens of the world.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

True empathy comes from true honesty. At Kindezi, every student feels safe. The ability to be exactly who you are naturally leads to a more healthy and empathetic human interaction. Our students are confident members of their communities. They’re critical thinkers who look at the world and ask why. They bring these questions to school and are given a platform to express themselves. An example of a facet of this platform would be our class justice box. The justice box is a place where students can write notes about concerns that they have. First, we identify the problem. Next, we discuss what ripple effect it can cause in the lives of others. Then, we discuss steps to take to effectively eliminate the problem. This type of dialogue helps determine different community projects we become involved in. Over the last two years, our students have participated in political activism, protests for a local recycling program, a relief drive for the gulf oil spill, and working to build a community garden. The Kindezi School’s model virtually eliminates the logistical inability to cultivate the needs of the entire child. Our students have learned to make empathetic connections to the real world.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Education is always changing. Those who are invested in refining it are constantly bringing innovative ideas to the table. Charter schools are opening around the country, each having their own model designed to improve education. However, the fact is that The Kindezi School’s model of family sized classrooms is ground breaking. Our model can work for any child. Many schools are currently doing an amazing job of providing their students with academic rigor. Others are doing outstanding work in the field of improving socio-emotional growth. Kindezi’s model addresses both factors. We cultivate the growth of the entire child.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since the opening of the school in fall 2010, incidents of violence at the school have decreased by 45%. The students have improved in their basic skills at an average rate of 1.3 grade levels per year, increasing in self-confidence. These are quantifiable data points based on our assessments and our records. What is not quantitatively measurable is that Kindezi has become a community of very strong, loving relationships. Our teachers love their students and the students love them back. Parents have become increasingly attached to their child’s teacher as well. This is a natural outcome of the six student limit to each classroom and the mandatory parent-teacher communication policy. The Kindezi School is a loving community of success.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

The Kindezi School has already developed a strategic plan outlining its future intentions. We would like to concentrate first on developing an exceptional school that is also financially viable. Then, our goal is to expand the model. We would like to show that this type of school is not only possible but highly successful. We hope others will imitate us and that foundations will support us in expanding our model.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Lack of recognition and attention could prevent the Kindezi story from being heard by those who might find it inspirational. It could also make it difficult for Kindezi to find the money to train and support those who might otherwise be interested in starting new Kindezi-style schools.
In order to overcome these barriers, Kindezi will work hard in the coming years to demonstrate that the model is successful and sustainable while simultaneously spreading the news as widely as possible.

From our principal, Dean Leeper...

I was teaching 2nd grade in a public school located in a very poor Atlanta neighborhood. I wanted to be everything that my students needed me to be but realized (“AHA!”) that I couldn’t. They needed more from me than I could possibly become. I desperately wanted a smaller group and became convinced that teachers in poor communities actually hurt their students sometimes by teaching over their heads, boring them with unchallenging work, or giving them only negative attention.

Then while looking at the budget of a charter school. I realized (“AHA!”) that the school employed 1 staff member for every 5.5 students in the school even though it had classes of 24 students. If we organize personnel differently we can create something healthier. Through that idea, The Kindezi School was born.

Kindezi is a tuition-free, public school, chartered under the Atlanta Public Schools system. As a charter, Kindezi does not have access to "full" school system benefits,and works tirelessly to build strong academic and financial foundations. Increased funding, exposure through PR/marketing initiatives, and collaboration/networking assistance would truly help propel toward our 3-year goals.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The whole of each child’s development – mind, body, and spirit – is at risk in public education. There is a growing view of children primarily as individual receivers of information, and not as active and creative producers of collective knowledge and value. Children deserve to see the world through a lens of cultural sensitivity and global awareness, where special populations and typically developing students are understood to have the same potential. Teachers need to be trained with the tools to inspire and motivate all of their students, regardless of background or ability.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

National Dance Institute’s In-School Program demonstrates that children with special needs can – and should – receive the same opportunities as typically developing children, and that they can achieve success alongside each other. We harness the power of the arts with dance and music experiences that reach every child through weekly classes during the school day in public schools throughout New York City. Our teaching artists treat special populations with the same expectations as they do the general education students we teach, through energetic instruction that transcends barriers of language, culture, and physical and cognitive challenges to engage each child in joyful and rigorous participatory experiences. Active group participation and performance in dance, music, and art is our vehicle to unlock empathy.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Several of our unique In-School Program partnerships are models of inclusion and collective achievement where NDI teaching artists unlock in children the power to lead through understanding and compassion.

At Lighthouse International Music School, high school-age NDI alums serve as sighted guide partners for visually impaired students, ages 7 to 23, in the same dance and arts education curriculum that all NDI students experience.

Our Special Forces Program, in PS 124 ands PS 199, joins self-contained special education with general education classrooms to build positive relationships between each community, proving that both populations benefit from intentional and compassionate collaboration.

At PS 163, our partnership has inspired the entire school’s pedagogy with “Project Integration through the Arts.” Through dance, students in dual-language and integrated co-teaching programs gain a common means of understanding to help build communication.

These are just a few of the 5,000 stories happening in NDI classes across New York City each week. Our approach to learning through movement and music allows general and special education students, English language learners (ELL), Students with Interrupted Formal Education (SIFE), and students with behavioral issues to build collective feelings of physical and emotional success.

Many organizations offer arts education programming in public school settings as a supplement to their core mission. A good example is New York City Ballet, from which our founder hails. Providing a full-year of weekly arts education programming in public school settings is our core mission. It is not an off-shoot of our programming, nor secondary to our mission…it is our charge.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

National Dance Institute’s teaching artists engender joy in movement and a feeling of collective success for 5,000 children each week through dance, music, and visual arts during the school day, at partnering public schools across New York City. The In-School Program reaches a culturally, ethnically, and economically diverse group of youth – having impacted the lives of over 2 million children in the last 35 years. Our partnerships have proven essential to the school communities in which we work. NDI’s In-School Program has weathered numerous rounds of school budget cuts and changes in administrations. Our average tenure in the schools we serve is 12 years, with many new additions in the last 2-3 years as well as several partnerships of 25-plus years.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

National Dance Institute will increase the exposure of our In-School Program to New York City public school communities and, consequently, increase our ability to nurture empathy and culturally aware citizenship in children. We will highlight models of inclusion within the schools we already serve, and look to partner with new schools that will be committed participants in activating empathy through physically active, creative, and inclusive pursuits. And, finally, we will further expand our reach and impact by training more teaching artists in our unique pedagogy for simultaneously engaging and energizing special populations and typically developing students with arts education experiences.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

There are two significant barriers to the expansion of National Dance Institute’s inclusive In-School Program model. Finding the highest-calibre artists who also have a love for teaching children, training them in our pedagogy, and providing them with the resources to make teaching a sustainable life/career choice is a major ongoing challenge. Additionally, raising the necessary funds to support our In-School Program’s presence in a growing number of partner schools is a struggle, particularly in uncertain economic times. Our best response to both challenges is to build awareness of our programs and their impact.

Growing up on the streets of Washington Heights in New York City with a rowdy group of kids, Jacques d’Amboise learned at a young age how the arts — and a good teacher — can save a child. They saved him. Forced by his mother to attend his sister’s ballet class one day, the dance teacher engaged Jacques. Week after week, with praise and encouragement, she began to motivate him. He was soon on his way to becoming one of the finest classical dancers of our time. In 1976, while still a principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Jacques founded NDI in the belief that the arts have a unique power to level the playing field and engage and motivate children of all abilities toward excellence.

The quality of NDI’s programs, and their potential to grow, is a direct result of the quality of the teachers implementing them. We send teams of three NDI teaching artists — a master teacher, a teaching assistant, and a musician — into each school, guiding the In-School Program’s collaboration with the staff and administration at each partner school to create the most inspiring environment possible to ensure the success of the ensemble, and each individual child.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The American Teenager Project’s primary goal is to combat social division and conflict among youth, which is caused both by residential segregation, and the legacy of poverty, racism, sexism, and homophobia, which lead youth to separate and fight each other rather than form alliances to strengthen them all. We are also concerned about the limited participation of minority and low-income youth in arts and social justice programs caused by cuts to such programs in public schools nation wide. A final problem we are solving is youth apathy caused by feeling undervalued in schools and the larger community.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution is to lead youth in gathering and maintaining a portrait photography and oral history archive of the adolescent experience in the United States, giving authentic voice to youth of all backgrounds and giving them an opportunity to know and care about each other, whether in person or through each others’ portrait and story, despite the multiple barriers that could divide them. Our immersion workshops bring youth from particular communities together across difference and teach them to listen to and tell each other’s stories. We develop youth engagement by giving them the platform to publicly present their story and their discoveries about each other and to inform their peers and the adults in their community what they want, what they need, and what they have to offer.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The American Teenager Project works in tandem with schools, libraries, community centers, arts organizations and after-school programs in each region to bring high school age youth from multiple backgrounds together for our It’s Complicated (IC) Workshops, during which they collaborate to take photographic portraits and oral histories of each other. We use the diversity of experience expressed by the teenagers in Robin Bowman’s photography and oral history collection to push youth to consider the lives of others from varied experiences and points of view and to consider how learning about the “other” affects their own outlook on the world and treatment of the “other” in their lives. Each workshop culminates in a professional level, public exhibition of work, presented by the youth to their chosen community audience. The final level of community engagement brings a cross-section of youth from an entire region or city together for a Master ICWorkshop which curates the material gathered through all the ICWorkshops and puts together a Culminating Exhibit and high profile public event at which youth present themselves to the community and lead discussions about the most pertinent youth issues that have come to light during their process.

The Museum of Tolerance, GSA network, Facing History and Ourselves, and Challenge Day train youth to see beyond difference and forge alliances. StoryCorps’ uses mobile units to archive oral histories and YouthSpeaks values youth as creator and audience. We see all these groups as allies in our work, but differentiate ourselves because we include the diversity both in and out of the room, emphasize community building over self-expression, and are not rooted to a particular dogma. We are not dependent on an academic class or club to run programs and we bridge the cultural gap in museum-going by being the connective vehicle through which several organizations in a community can work together.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We bridged the gap between youth in Cincinnati who in no other circumstance had opportunities to connect with each other because of historically based race and income boundaries in their city. We’ve published three books of youth photos and stories. Robin Bowman has spoken to over 6,000 youth about seeing past difference and forging connections with others. In 20 (that we know of) schools teachers are using our photographs and oral histories to teach youth about diversity and adolescent issues. Participants in our workshop say they have learned “the grass isn’t greener” and “I had certain views on some people, but I, it’s changed since I’ve gotten here, since I’ve gotten to know them” and “It was real interesting to see how the stereotypes I have didn’t fit.”

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We anticipate running workshops with at least 2,000 youth in ten cities/regions over the next three years. Their exhibitions will reach a youth audience of at least 10,000 and will be the seed of curiosity, openness, and compassion in their home communities. 25,000 youth and adults will have their hearts and minds opened by the photographs and stories shown through our mobile gallery.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A barrier to our program is the limitations in the traditional school day in both private and public schools. We have to find avenues through which youth can participate in our program. Our plan is to adapt the workshop model to fit different systems’ structures and needs. We also might face opposition to our stance on gay rights– similarly to how GSAs have faced opposition. We plan to find collaborative partners in each community who can help us anticipate and navigate such conflicts. Our collaborators will need to be trusted and respected adults who have anchors in the community.

During Robin’s ICWorkshops in Cincinnati last Spring the youth transcended the entrenched segregation in that communities’ schools to form strong bonds with each other and produce an extraordinary collection of portraits and stories. The workshop proved the impact Robin’s photographic material and process has on facilitating connection and compassion and participants urged Robin to expand her program to help kids nationwide. At the same moment in time, Julia left classroom teaching to pursue other avenues for youth empowerment, because she saw how the economic crisis and high-stakes testing climate was cutting youth’s access to most opportunities for building their compassionate connection to the world. Our missions crossed when Robin invited Julia to join her in creating a new program.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Majority of the school systems in the developing world lay emphasis on rote-based learning in which children are merely receptors of knowledge. Children who are the real stakeholders are never included in this process of creating education content as well as innovations and hence there is a disconnect between what content will be sustainable in classroom settings. With the technology tools at our disposal there is a growing need to empower children to participate in this revolution so that they can grow up to become empathetic towards the needs of less privileged children and in the process learn better.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution address two things:

Empowerment
Platform for children to learn (at their own pace), teach (what they have learned) and share (with their community). TAC’s platform creates a structured computer-based learning experience that empowers children to learn at their own pace and educators to evaluate each child individually. We integrate key features like Stanford Universities SMILE program, which allows children to create questions and videos of their own.

Access to Information
TAC creates and sets up low-cost education hotspots, which are wireless servers that run on electricity (solar powered hotspots under development) and come prepackaged with proprietary software, NomadEDU, thus eliminating need for Internet.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Learn: Adapt the plethora of educational content to local classrooms by structuring it to the local curriculum. This enables the children and teachers to use online educational resources in their classrooms and customize their own lessons.

Create: NomadEDU provides teachers and children the technology to share and create their localized lessons. This stage involves a lot of community engagement and motivates the teachers and children to take ownership of the project.

The students will create questions related to the video lessons and classroom content, which will be answered by other students in the class. These will also form a repository of Q&A that can be shared to other classrooms and schools. The SMILE server that is integrated into our hotspots allows local teachers to evaluate the retention and comprehension of the students through this exercise.

Share: By submitting content to localized hotspots in the form of questions and videos, teachers and students can share their own learning with the community and other schools.

Through this process of Learning, Creating, Sharing we hope to engage students and teachers in developing localized e-learning resources for their community and thus empower children to participate in a global movement to change the way we learn.

Our peers and partners are content providers like Khan Academy, Udemy; innovative engines like SMILE and field delivery channels like Peace Corps and TFI.

Each player concentrates only on one end of the spectrum – providing content creation or delivery. Therefore given our model, we see more collaboration than competitive challenges to our growth. By leveraging the best practices of existing models, we focus on empowering local stakeholders (teachers & students) to learn from existing resources and create their own, contributing to a mutually beneficial environment. We see children developing content and questions, which can be shared with children from all over the world facilitating learning and fostering empathy at a very young age.

Second, by going backstage and joining hands with the true stakeholders, we are focusing on a long term and sustainable approach. 15 of the 200 children teamed up to create lessons inspired from KhanAcademy. One of them, Zaya from Lotus Orphanage, translated the KA interface into Mongolian, leading by example and demonstrating potential to her community.

Imagine the power of reverse accountability, when local community children themselves carry the inspiration and onus of making-change. That is the impact we hope to deliver.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Given our focus on developing countries, we understand that scale is indispensable to a high impact solution. While maintaining our dedication towards bringing enhanced learning material to classrooms, with our strong partners like TFI and Peace Corps we can deliver and scale our model to remote communities in countries like India, Bangladesh and Mongolia.

We will be collaborating with local educators and children in schools operated by our partners and thus reach at least 20 new schools in 2012 and 100 by 2015. Just by working with children in schools in developed countries to create lessons we are on track to create a base of over 2000 education lessons taught by kids over the next 2 years. This content would reach at total of over 20,000 children.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Our ability to have a meaningful impact hinges on full participation from the main stakeholders: teachers and children. On a daily basis, the biggest challenging is motivating teachers to step out of their comfort zone and experiment with technology.

On a long-term basis, the success of our project will be measured by its sustainability. For this, we need local teachers and school administrators to take ownership of these projects.

We have chosen to take a bottom-up approach to the problems. We want to first focus on successfully piloting our projects in partnership with established NGOs. Once we have achieved demonstrable results, we will approach the municipal bodies as well as the planning commission in India. By demonstrating tangible results, we hope to create a mass movement.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

In 2011, our founder, Neil D'souza, started delivering online resources to orphanages in Asia through our education hotspots. As he was setting up these hotspots, he was struck by the brilliance of the children he was teaching and thought about get children involved in his project. He started creating internships for children from the orphanages wherein he would get them to create lessons based on existing content. He noticed how this exercise, apart from allowing the kids to improve their own understanding of the subject matter, was helping them become more empathetic towards other students in their community. This revelation led to the development of NomadEDU, a platform for children to learn, teach and share these lessons with other low-income remote communities around the world.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Israelis and Palestinians lack the opportunities, capacities, and tools to find common ground on the core issues perpetuating conflict within and between their societies. At the heart of the problem lies a shared, deep-seated belief that they are engaged in an existential conflict. Fearful that acknowledging each other’s perspectives and needs might undermine their own legitimacy, both sides remain unwilling to take the steps needed to reach peace.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

If Israeli and Palestinian youth, as significant contributors to activities that drive both conflict and peace, lead efforts to address core conflict issues within and between their societies through community dialogues with peers and community members and educational programs that couple cross-border dialogues with cooperative action; if there is greater investment in developing capacities that help alleviate and transform conflict, i.e. dialogue facilitation, mediation and negotiation skills, and innovative problem-solving; and if women, children and educators are better integrated into peacebuilding, then there will be important progress towards reaching common ground and building the foundation for peace.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Historically, educators have played a pivotal role in transforming conflict; in Israel and the Palestinian territories, however, they often lack the motivation, networks, skills, and tools to use their classrooms and schools as a force for peace. Our workshops are designed to strengthen the capacity of at least 300 educators to promote peace education, cross-cultural understanding, civic engagement, and leadership in their home communities through professional training, tools, and resources. Seeds of Peace will conduct capacity building workshops within the West Bank, Gaza and Israel, including 16 uni-national workshops and two bi-national workshops. These workshops will culminate in an annual cross-border conference in Jordan focused on practical ways in which educators can empower youth to be active, peaceful, productive citizens. In addition to the trainings, Seeds of Peace will produce a series of teachers’ guides in English, Hebrew and Arabic. These guides will be designed in both online and hard copy versions. The online guides will be promoted to local NGOs, schools, and partner networks; hard copy guides will be distributed to educators and schools in marginalized communities and/or where online access is less common.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Seeds of Peace collects feedback from participants and considers staff observations when assessing the impact of the programs. Participants in past programs of a similar nature have set aside differences and biases to work together as a team and fully engage in the program. They also demonstrated a commitment to the ideals of Seeds of Peace and the desire to continue their work in their home schools and communities. Seeds of Peace has almost 20 years of organizational experience successfully implementing programs addressing conflict management and mitigation including the Model Schools Initiative, which called on educators to cultivate an environment of tolerance, dialogue and civic engagement in Palestinian and Israeli schools and youth organizations.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Develop critical support networks for young people working to create common ground between their societies; create a multiplier effect through schools, classrooms, and communities throughout Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza; strengthen the capacity of a minimum of 250 educators to promote peace education, cross-cultural understanding, civic engagement, and leadership in their home communities through professional training, tools, and resources.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Seeds of Peace works in regions of conflict where the situation on the ground is dynamic. The political climate in many cities where Seeds of Peace operates is in flux, and there is often uncertainty from day to day. The commitment of our participants to their important work, as well as our strong relationships and open lines of communication with government officials and community members around the world help mitigate the consequences of political instability.

Seeds of Peace was founded in 1993 by John Wallach, an award-winning author and journalist who believed that given the chance, youth will choose coexistence over conflict, hope over fear and further, the belief that these choices will permeate their local cultures and have a positive, lasting impact on the future of global peace and prosperity. Seeds of Peace was born at a meeting John had with leaders from the Middle East. During the meeting, John proposed that they each send a few of the “best and brightest” teenagers from their countries to a summer camp in Maine to participate in a team-building and leadership program.

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Recent political unrest has caused the number of orphans to spike in the Kathmandu Valley. Adoptions have been halted for years due to growing coercion, trafficking, and corruption of orphans. The number of orphans is increasing as resources are dwindling. Girls are especially vulnerable. Orphanages are mis-managed and under-funded. Often girls and boys at orphanages report being discriminated against in class for being poor or from a certain caste, blamed for stealing things just because they are poor, picked on by teachers for unpaid tuition, and being told they are inferior because they do not have what is considered a ‘traditional’ family. This, of course, adversely impacts their ability to learn and their chances of becoming confident, community leaders.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Theater is essentially the art of empathy. One literally embodies another character to tell their story. Theater is also play, so it a perfect tool with which to engage children to learn and practice empathy, collaboration, leadership, and improvise to problem solve.

By teaching empathy through participatory theater to orphans, we can build confidence and empathy skills that will empower orphans in the face of injustice. By extending our empathy-focused theater curriculum to school children who are peers of orphans, we can cultivate cultural sensitivity and understanding, practice active listening, and develop the psychological skills of putting ourselves in another person’s shoes to understand their worldview.

The workshops will consist of highly interactive workshops in writing, discussing, and playing improvisational theater games. The youth would create and perform theater scenes centered on topics of discrimination, allowing them to build and utilize empathy skills.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

In the process of developing and performing theater in these workshops, participants will develop the abilities to problem solve on their feet, understand other people’s motivations through character analysis, listen, cooperate, build confidence, and, most importantly, develop their ability to empathize.
We will excite and educate participants using simple, fun theater games. Augusto Boal’s Theater of the Oppressed envisions theater as a place to practice new ways of thinking that actors can then incorporate into real life. We will use scenarios that address discrimination and bullying based on ethnicity, wealth, family status, etc. The students will improvise different scenarios, experiment with different endings, and use question and answer sessions to understand the motivations of each of the characters. They can then use what they have learned to collectively problem solve and enact the solution.
There will also be a strong writing component based on personal exploration. Participants will begin by writing monologues about themselves. They will also interview a peer and write a monologue from that person’s point of view. Then, the children will write their own short scenes about a conflict and its resolution.
Participants will sign up as directors and actors. In rehearsal, we will play, practice, and discuss how to embody the characters physically and mentally. How does the character move? If they are egotistical, how do they walk? If they are insecure, how do they behave? What is causing them to do this in the scene? Finally, they will perform their scenes.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

There do not seem to be any NGOs in Nepal with children focusing on building empathy based on difference. We hope to set a precedent for this kind of work in Nepal in other areas of discrimination (such as gender, lifestyle, etc).

One group in Kathmandu is doing social justice street theater about relevant social issues. They, I believe, would be a potential partner, as we could collaborate to give children training with actors from their company, and perhaps partner to increase the sustainability of and expand the vision of both our projects.

Furthermore, this program is unique to social activist theater programs, which work with adults, not children, and use theater to promote a message, rather than using the process of creating theater to teach participants empathy.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The Kumari Project has provided required school uniforms, textbooks, tuition, and nutrition to over 225 Nepalese orphans. This theater program, however, is still in the concept stage. Our Executive Director has extensive history designing similar empathy-building theater programs, most recently, consulting for Minority Rights Group International's EU-grant funded Street Theatre to Combat Racism Program in four countries. Additionally she wrote about implementing an empathy-based theater project in her Theater Studies Thesis at Yale 'Tibet Imagined: An Exploration of Social Change Theater, Movement, and Empathy Production.'
Using theater and play as a vehicle for children to express themselves and explore other people’s perspectives by creating and writing their own characters will build confidence, critical thinking, problem-solving, team-building, and empathy skills in orphans and non-orphans, creating a more accepting learning environment and growing responsive community leaders.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Within the next year, we expect to pilot this program in four orphanages and three schools, impacting over 210 children (120 orphans). Then, with continued support, we will repeat our program at each orphanage and expand the program to another three schools that orphans attend and four more orphanages. Finally, in the final year, we will expand this program to all eleven orphanages run by the Nepal Children's Organization, and at least one school attended by kids on those orphanages, reaching all 520 kids in the Nepal Children’s Organization’s children’s homes and even more children at schools that orphans attend, cultivating empathy-building skills in all children who participate in the program.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Due to the political instability, there are frequent public transportation and worker strikes and petrol and electricity shortages. By creating a flexible schedule we will be prepared to overcome potential interruptions.
Culturally, Nepalese schools rely on rote memorization. Thus, it might be challenging for children to develop and write scripts from scratch. However, we designed the program to guide them through the creative process, starting with playing theater games and building up to cultivating creative autonomy. Also, bullying and discrimination might be difficult to discuss, so we will present hypothetical scenarios before discussing the personal reality of the scenes and the consequences on people’s feelings and actions. Our Nepali volunteers will translate if needed.

I co-created a writing and performance workshop for young Nepalese immigrant women in Queens. The girls often wrote about fights with their mothers about their lack of freedom and how their mothers did not trust them. Two sisters performed a scene in which the eldest played the mother and the youngest, the daughter. As soon as it was over, the eldest exclaimed, “I understand what our mom went through to get us here [America]. We should be nicer to her.” The two sisters commenced to write and perform a scene portraying how they currently treated their mother and how they wanted to recognize the sacrifices she had made for them and be more respectful in the future. I realized then the power theater has to transform, even more than those who watch it, those who perform it.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Bullying is a huge problem in our schools and neighborhoods. Instead of the numbers of bullying incidents declining, they are increasing. 160,000 kids miss school everyday because of being bullied.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

One of the first and most popular anti-bullying videos "Gum In My Hair" is entertaining, engaging and effective. Bullying almost always stops when peers intervene,but young people need to be taught how to do that. This DVD 2.0 incorporates new research that emphasizes:
• The role of the bystander in fueling or defusing a bullying incident;
• Empathy, and how teaching it can prevent bullying in the hallways;
• Why it's important to focus on "bullying" rather than just the bully;
• And the fact that having one or two friends or allies significantly reduces
a child's chances of being bullied.
Gum In My Hair looks at what bullying is, its effects on people and how it makes them feel. Gum In My Hair is a new way to deal with an old topic, and will be invaluable to anyone wanting to help children learn in a safe and supportive environment.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In this country, our children's social and emotional intelligence and well-being have been sacrificed in a well-meaning but inherently flawed effort to improve public education exclusively through quantitative testing results and measurable data. Anxiety, bullying, drop-out rates, college-readiness skills, and the need for special education services have risen dramatically in the past 10 years since the enactment of No Child Left Behind. Our official education policy has embraced content over the development of higher-order thinking skills such as critical thinking, executive function, collaborative problem solving, and has all but ignored higher level feeling skills such as emotional regulation, relatedness, community building, empathy, moral development, and character education.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The solution is to develop project-based, highly personalized educational models that focus on developing 21st century skills with a deliberately diverse student population. The Tremont School takes a wide variety of students and addresses their social, emotional, and academic needs by engaging in hands-on learning that supports the intrinsic understanding of the academic material while promoting relatedness and empathy through a social curriculum that spans the entire school day from classroom to lunchroom to gym class. The academic curriculum is customized around the students' individual learning styles and interests, so they can learn from each other in a dynamic and engaging academic community reflecting the society at large they will graduate into. The social/emotional curriculum is embedded into every academic activity and the very culture of the school. And we achieve these results with a student community that includes children with special needs including autism and ADHD.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

A student who has been removed from school and home-schooled because of bullying comes to the Tremont School for his first day and finds that another student--through no prompting from a teacher--has put a note in his locker welcoming him to school. He sits in the morning meeting to preview the days work and meet his classmates before breaking into an all-school community skills class where they are learning about reading non-verbal social cues in a group setting. Following a quick meeting with a teacher around the students contract for that week, he heads off to find his partner on the musical they are writing together. Gym class comes next where they are playing cooperative games led by the student captain chosen for that week. During lunch, teachers sit with students outside to share ideas about current events. The afternoon is spent as a group building a shelter in the woods that can survive the sustained winds of a storm coming in a few days, which has been tracked and rated by another group of students interested in meteorology. After school a group of students meet for group activities that they have planned and organized themselves with the support of parent volunteers. One group is knitting scarves for the upcoming school fundraiser while another is making coloring books for one parent who is a surgeon to deliver to pediatric patients on his trip to Colombia to work on cleft palates. This is a real-life example of a day at Tremont School where kids constantly feel connected to themselves, their community, and their academics in a comprehensive way.

Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

The marketplace for our services is massive and includes essentially every school-age child in the United States. Our direct competitors are the same as our peers--public schools as well as more traditional private/parochial schools. As a non-profit organization with a mission to develop private schools, charter schools, as well as whole-child curriculum for public schools, our closest competition is also our closest potential partners. Where there is a need in the marketplace for a school like the Tremont School, we can build a private school or charter school. If the community has an existing school that could achieve our mission through consulting, curriculum or other types of support, we can provide that expertise and fulfill our mission in partnership with those existing schools.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In only our first year we have fundamentally changed the lives of our students and families. Early parent survey results from Year One demonstrate that our students are happier, more connected to each other, more interested in their school work, and more successful at home as a result of joining the School. Parents report drastic improvements in their attitude toward school work, friendships, and their skills at problem solving. Academically, our students are more actively engaged in their work than at their previous school as a result of our unique curriculum. We have independently measured time on task at the school and found that students are averaging 80 percent time-on-task. Parents report that their children are working at home independently and reading on their own more than at their previous schools. All of our families are returning next year, and several are registering siblings for next year. Students report that they enjoy school more, both socially and academically.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

To increase the number of families served by the Tremont School pilot to 125; to identify a market for developing the first public charter school using the Tremont School model to serve 150 children; to publish a white paper on how public schools can measure social and emotional development and learning within the context of No Child Left Behind; and to develop a coalition model of schools that will replicate and grow the network of Collaborative Learning Project Schools. Finally, we plan on creating leadership and summer institutes where educators, parents, students, and service providers can come and learn about how to implement a more comprehensive approach to education that weaves social and emotional learning across all aspects of school to create a culture of support and caring.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The primary barrier to success is financial sustainability. Tuition dollars, philanthropy, and government support for charter schools could be affected by the economy, politics, and a host of other reasons beyond our control. For the Tremont School, developing a program that is truly inclusive means finding parents who's children aren't in crisis but who see the value in our project-based curriculum that focuses on 21st century skills. Early adopters are often those families who have experienced previous failure. We need to develop a program who's success in reaching and teaching ALL children creates a school and community environment that reflects our society as a whole. Inclusive education requires a broad-based community of students, which is a challenging recruiting environment.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

In 2008, three families shared a dream: to create an alternative independent day school where all of their children could learn and thrive, together. What made this dream unique was the fact that each of the families had at least one child on the autism spectrum.

Inspired by the goal to deeply engage its students socially and emotionally as well as academically, the three families reached out to a group of parents, educators, child advocates, and community leaders who shared their interested in building a new kind of inclusive school. The Collaborative Learning Project was formed in April of 2008, and received its tax-exempt status in August of 2009.

Plans soon emerged for a middle school that would accept both children with autism and their “typical” peers, to create a dynamic and unique learning community where ALL students would be heard, respected, cared for, and supported in an engaging and non-judgmental environment.

The Tremont School opened in September of 2011.

Our team already includes 4 teachers, an academic director, and an unpaid, full-time president of the board. In order to achieve our growth milestones we will need to hire a marketing/development director, a charter school founder as well as an executive director within the next two years. We will also need to hire additional teachers as the Tremont School grows in order to keep the student-teacher ratio at approximately 6-1. We have developed a board and volunteer team of over 30 people and we will continue to provide resources for staff and volunteer development.

Non-profit organizations need to be engaged in everything all the time, constantly evaluating what it needs to grow and what it can provide to others in support of the sector. At its best, a non-profit is both a sponge for resources as well as a fire hose of support for its community of stakeholders. Connecting with others in an exchange of time, talent, and treasure is why I do this work.

help send more children to school.
reduce early death of young people by encouraging a healthy food no smoking or drinking area.
this will also give chance to juvenile offenders to turn their lives around
it will help young people become more independent and less reckless because we will be there to talk to them when they have no one to turn to, and it will be the best seeing that it is a youth led initiative and it can be said that its easier to talk to someone about your age.
it will reduce a lot of tv sessions and more garden sessions, hence more knowledge to empower young people

secondly there are no jobs for youth, even if its a small percentage but this project will create jobs for young people.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Youth will be offered an opportunity to learn and develop entrepreneurial business skills, and become advocates for environmental and health issues amongst their peers and within their community. Participants will grow fresh produce on an urban agricultural site and develop business/marketing skills. Furthermore, this program promotes healthy eating habits, increases awareness around environmental issues and encourages physical activity. Young people will be encouraged to be involved in the planning, researching, decision making, fund-raising and running of the Youth Garden; empowering young people and giving them responsibility to create a sense of ownership and commitment. That’s why the Youth Garden is a very special project.

when i was walking home one very hot day i saw a scrony small girl sitting on the ground under a very big beautiful tree. she was begging for money to buy food. i asked her why she was not in school and she told me that her parents had no money to send her to school. it really touched me that i got to finish school and she didn't, i further asked her what grade she was in and she said she stopped school the previous year in term 2 and that was her last year. it brought tears to my eyes that this well spoken child had only one and a half terms to go before she completed her high school. it then dawned to me that since the tree was her source of protection from the scorching sun while she begged for arms, we needed more trees and more people to give a lending hand so that every child can finish their education and become great leaders of tomorrow then whala THE YOUTH GARDEN PROJECT was born.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

On a daily basis, Montana youth confront intolerance, discrimination and violence. Though youth bullying and violence are often connected to prejudice, many anti-bullying efforts do not adequately address this root cause. Montana’s increasing diversity corresponds with a significant increase in incidents of bigotry and violence, as evidenced by brutal attacks on LGBTIQ people, hazing of youth with disabilities, and racist targeting of people of color. While we know significant prejudice exists in Montana, very little work has been done to combat intolerance in the state.
Due to funding limitations, many schools are unable to implement effective violence prevention efforts. NCBI build safe, empowering, and inclusive learning communities.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

NCBI serves the state of Montana, with a focus on empowering individuals targeted by prejudice and mistreatment. NCBI implements violence prevention programs for youth grades K-12 and trains educators in effective prejudice and violence intervention practices. NCBI recruits diverse groups of participants including students who have been targets of mistreatment, as well as students who act as allies for those who are targeted.

NCBI is a sought-out resource, and provides prejudice reduction, violence prevention and conflict resolution training to individuals, organizations and schools throughout Montana. To date, NCBI only implements ongoing youth programs in 6 Missoula schools - 1 elementary, 3 middle, and 2 high schools. NCBI has received requests to expand within the Missoula County Public School District and to several nearby rural or reservation communities, to reach an increased number of youth and create environments where all students feel safe, included, and engaged.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

High School Train-the-Trainer – 3-day Seminar for High School Youth and Educators: Builds a corps of students, staff, and community members who can facilitate NCBI trainings for the school community. This program teaches effective leadership skills in the areas of prejudice reduction, violence prevention, conflict resolution, and community building, educating up to 60 youth and educators annually. Youth trainers help facilitate the following:
Respect Club – Elementary and Middle School Youth After-school Program: Assists youth to develop the capacity, esteem and skills to achieve a healthy identity, overall wellness, and academic success. Students build relationships across group lines, develop leadership skills, and take action to improve the safety of their own lives and their school environment. Up to 30 students participate in weekly after-school activities.
Youth Forward – High School Youth After-school Program: Decreases isolation and risk behaviors and promotes healthy identity and resilience among youth 13 to 18 that identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer or are questioning their sexuality. Up to 30 youth attend weekly activities.
Youth and School-Based Trainings —Assorted Workshops: Builds a foundational climate of respect and inclusion among students, school staff and administrators, including generalized curriculum designed to prevent bullying and create inclusive learning environments, as well as workshops on specific issues, such as responding to anti-gay harassment. 400 educators and 900 youth participate in training annually.

NCBI is the only Montana organization working to develop young people’s skills to reduce prejudice and prevent violence. Our Respect Club programs are offered through the Flagship Program, a local organization coordinating after-school programs .works closely with the Flagship program at each school to ensure successful recruitment of a diverse student pool. Respect Club consistently engages more students of color than other Flagship programs. Whereas all Flagship programs engage 12% youth of color, Respect Club averaged at least 25% students of color over the past six years, significant in a city that is 94% white. In addition, Flagship coordinators report that many students who participate in Respect Club do not participate in other Flagship activities.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In 2011, NCBI’s school based programs reached over 1500 educators and young people in 24 Montana schools.
Youth participants report: Increased knowledge of safety and respect, increased understanding of roots of prejudice and violence, increased prejudice reduction and violence prevention skills, and increased self-esteem and confidence. Educators report increased violence prevention knowledge and intervention skills.
One example of NCBI’s impact comes from our high school program’s success. After unprecedented levels of violence in the Missoula high schools in 2007, NCBI launched a peer-led Violence Prevention Initiative targeting the freshman classes. Since then, NCBI has coordinated an annual Training of Trainers to prepare youth and adult teams to be workshop facilitators. School disciplinary data indicates that after NCBI began implementation of Violence Prevention Initiative, violence reduced more than 65% over two years at one high school and 54% the first year at a second.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

With support to expand our Youth Development Program staff, NCBI will be able to grow all programs, more than doubling our annual impact after three-years of expansion.
Specific program participation outcomes for each year are as follows:

Year 1: 2130 Participants
-Respect Club: 40
-Youth Forward: 30
-Training of Trainers: 60
-Youth and School-Based Trainings: 2000

Year 2: 4160 Participants
-Respect Club: 60
-Youth Forward: 40
-Training of Trainers: 60
-Youth and School-Based Trainings: 4000

Year 3: 6200 Participants
-Respect Club: 80
-Youth Forward: 50
-Training of Trainers: 70
-Youth and School-Based Trainings: 6000

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Demand for NCBI’s youth programs has outpaced expansion in staff. The Director of Youth Programs is operating far over capacity, managing NCBI’s high school peer-prevention program and statewide profession-development trainings in addition to overseeing the four current Missoula Respect Clubs. Her current work load is not sustainable and, without additional funding for staff and resources, expansion of NCBI Youth Development Programs is not possible. Additional staff is required to meet the current need and to build capacity for future program expansion.
