Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Young Activists will be organized as extracurricular activity in my school, where students will be informed about bullying and it's consequences. They will attend series of lectures and workshops where they'll be inform of this destruction among peers. The general idea is to increase the empathy by increasing the understanding of the issue.

About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The goal of this mission, which is extinction of discrimination and bullying is hardly reachable. However, the process of reaching the goal will be crucial because in that stage the school community (200 people) will somehow affect the local community (150000 people) and bring the mission closer to its goal.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

The solution aims not only on the erasing term bullying from the local world but also bringing youth together and activating them, therefore showing them how they can make difference themselves.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
