ReThink Chapters in schools and communities
Take the first step to be an UpStander, and not a silent ByStander
A ReThink chapter is an organized forum to spearhead the ReThink movement in your local school and/or community. We invite nominations from schools, colleges, libraries, community centers, and health centers to start a ReThink Chapter at their institution. Every ReThink chapter is part of the global ReThink movement to stop online hate and promote tolerance and inclusivity. By starting a chapter at your school, college, or community, you have the ability to lead and empower your fellow adolescents to become safe and responsible digital citizens.
Nominated students start a ReThink chapter at their school or college and become leaders to help empower young students to ReThink before posting hurtful messages online. After being nominated by a teacher, counselor, or administrator, nominators and students work with the ReThink Team to formalize their chapter. These student leaders organize activities throughout the school year in conjunction with their school or college’s administration to promote awareness of online and in-person bullying and to create a tolerant, inclusive environment for communities at your school or college.
We invite an educator, counselor, or administration member of a school or college to become a ReThink Advisor by forming a ReThink Executive Committee of interested students for the upcoming school year and nominating these students to head a ReThink Chapter
All Executive Members should spend the summer organizing the launch of their ReThink Chapter with the onset of the academic school year. Organization/preparation may include creating a chapter-specific website, planning activities, or communicating with faculty members regarding anti-hate campaigns/initiatives. Each school will have its own needs, so chapters should focus on what is most important to their academic community. A ReThink advisor must submit provide proof of a minimum amount of time spent preparing via a simple form. This is to ensure that your chapter is as successful as it can be!
ReThink Chapters meet to conquer cyberbullying through specific activity Each Chapter must fulfill the basic requirements of a ReThink Chapter and conduct 6 events in a school year to maintain their status as a ReThink Chapter. Completing additional events will allow Chapters to become eligible to attend exciting ReThink conferences!
