BREXIT, Donald Trump, fake news, far-right extremism and terrorism are all part of our young peoples’ reality.
Become The Voice CIC uses a combination critical thinking and identity building workshops, alongside tackling the difficult yet pertinent issues of today, to deliver programmes that build resilience to extremism and help to build a more cohesive and tolerant community.
Schools now have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Our programmes are bespoke and ideal for Primary & Secondary schools as well as community groups.
BASICS | Primary Schools
A strong sense of identity, belonging and mutual respect and tolerance builds resilience to extremist narratives. Since 2015 it has become a legal obligation on schools to instill British values and incorporate safeguarding against extremism into their safeguarding processes.
Through the packages, we offer primary schools our specialist in counter-extremism and interfaith youth worker deliver a series of workshops that build in the participants a sense of identity, sense of belonging, critical thinking, awareness of British values and identification with them.
BASICS & EXPERIENCED | Secondary Schools and Community Groups
Our activist programmes equip, enable and empower young people to become the voice that challenges hate online. Schools and community groups can opt for a single-issue (shorter) programme or multi-issue programme.
Our programmes rely on experts in their fields, local
EXPERIENCED | Interfaith
Having the opportunity to ask questions, encounter other beliefs and experience different faith communities whilst being guided by trained dialogue facilitators is a key component of our interfaith programmes.
In 2018 we had the immense privilege to work with the local community in Hebron, Palestine. Have a look at what we achieved and get a feeling for what Become The Voice looks like in action.
