What You Can Expect From Challenge Day Create A Team

Be the Change School Teams are groups of youth and adults who build and sustain the spirit of Challenge Day through events, service projects, mentoring programs, and other activities.

Using Challenge Day's Formula for Change (Notice, Choose, and Act), Be the Change School Teams notice the issues facing students at their school, choose a vision for increasing compassion and respect on campus, and step into action to make their vision a reality.

Each Be the Change School Team sets three goals, creates a clear action plan for achieving their goals, and submits this action plan to Challenge Day. Creating a Be the Change School Team and submitting your Be the Change Action Plan are highly recommended before booking a Challenge Day.

Here are just a few ways Be the Change School Teams are making a difference:

  • Starting peer mentoring programs
  • Organizing campus clean-up days
  • Developing all-school days of kindness
  • Creating positive poster campaigns around schools

You only need three people to start a Be the Change Team:

  • At least one committed and motivated student leader
  • At least one school staff member
  • At least one parent

By forming a Be the Change Team, you'll also join the Be the Change Movement: a growing network of motivated youth and adults who are dedicated to being the change they wish to see in the world.
