Schoolchildren, students, teenagers and young people

school-children-small-steps

We train and mentor young people to protect them against the influence of the far right in at-risk areas. Drawing on our own experiences within the far right, we educate young people, students and schoolchildren on the dangers of getting involved with far-right groups and train them to be aware of their recruitment tactics.

Far-right awareness course

  • Who is it for? Students, teenagers and young people over 14.
  • Course length 1 hour

Tailored to the needs of young people, our far-right awareness training is interactive with Q&A sessions, videos and group activities. Our course is designed to encourage debate and understanding among young people about the far right’s divisive narrative. We highlight the harsh reality of getting involved with the far right and how it affects our families, social life and future job prospects.
