#DROPTHEKNIFE Ambassador Program
During seminars, the idea of becoming an ambassador will be discussed with students and identification of suitable candidates will be completed in conjunction with teachers. Pupils in each school will be identified as ambassadors to work alongside the charity to deliver its message and equally to give feedback and advise the charity on how it can develop a meaningful and effective strategy for the future.
It is important to note at this point that ambassadors will not be selected for academic ability and or history of previous engagement. Focus will be put on identifying students that could most benefit from this scheme and the opportunities it may offer.
Training and Mentoring for Ambassadors
Local Youth workers will be engaged to work with our ambassadors to understand the message and deliver activities within the school. These activities can be in the form of, role play, drama, music, science and any other activities agreed with teachers.
Ambassadors will use activities to encourage their peers to think about the consequences of carrying a knife and the implications that this would have on themselves, their families, other people and their communities. They will also work on encouraging them to think about alternative activities which would divert them from gang culture.
