STAND Week is a media safety program for youth ages 11-14. It is a school peer-to-peer program run by student leaders. It is designed to create an atmosphere where youth feel empowered to stand firm and make healthy choices with technology. STAND Week also contains a parent education component and facilitates an open-dialogue on essential issues between students and their parents.

 

The power of STAND Week lies in:

  • promoting the development of youth leadership skills,

  • influencing youth through constructive social proof, 

  • creating a positive unified atmosphere regarding healthy technology (like a media safety spirit week),

  • providing education for parents/guardians,

  • facilitating communication between students and their parents/guardians,

  • and of course, individually empowering youth to make healthy media choices.
