Create Student-Led Assembly Programs
The Beyond Differences Teen Board leads assemblies for 5th-9th grades classes in schools all over the Bay Area, reaching audiences of 20-1,000 students. The technique they use to prepare, under the guidance of Teen Board Director, is to first find their own voice through authentic self-expression in front of their peers on the Board. Each of the Board members must first experience what it is to move beyond his or her own differences before modeling positive leadership to others. The Teen Board actively learns how to listen, support, and create safety for one another. By the time they are standing on stage in front of entire student bodies, they have the courage to delve into issues that are ordinarily difficult to discuss.
The Teen Board aims to provide a safe environment for all students to open up about their middle school experiences: what they feel, what they see in themselves and their classmates, and how they wish their friends would behave with one another. Through a combination of their courage, skills at speaking, listening, and guiding conversation, authentic sharing, and remarkable hearts, our Teen Board is not only inspiring others to imagine a different world, but they are also beginning to create it.
We invite you to bring an assembly to your school or community! For more information about our assembly program, or other ways to get involved contact us.
