Project TRUST was created to empower young people to make their world a better place to live. Through its mission of teaching respect, understanding, and student teamwork, the program aims to change school cultures to become a more positive place for young people to learn and thrive. The program also encourages collaboration between students and staff to end bullying.
So what does this mean for parents? Well, if your child is invited to a Project TRUST retreat, it means they are viewed as an opinion leader and potential agent for change in their school. At the retreat, they will learn skills in leadership and teambuilding, as well as developing a deeper understanding and respect for their fellow students. Ideally, they will take these skills back to their schools and lead classmates in respecting other clique groups and students in the school, which will create the positive culture Project TRUST was designed to instill.
