Intervention: Anne Frank schools and Ambassadors programme
The Anne Frank Trust UK runs a schools-based peer education and volunteering programme that will be delivered in five UK regions, reaching 12 towns/cities across five years. The programme aims to challenge prejudice and prevent a move towards hate-related offending.
At each school the Anne Frank Trust UK will deliver:
- an exhibition, Anne Frank: A History for Today, and train children as peer-educator exhibition guides, developing important social and communication skills
- workshops on themes of identity, diversity and human rights, including a talk from a Holocaust survivor where possible
- recruit six Anne Frank Ambassadors from peer-educators.
Delivery organisation: The Anne Frank Trust UK
The Anne Frank Trust UK draws on the power of Anne Frank’s life and diary to challenge prejudice and reduce hatred, encouraging people to embrace positive attitudes, responsibility and respect for others. The aim is to achieve this through educational projects, operating across the country in schools, prisons and communities.
