One of TAMI Durham’s 5 goals is to provide secondary school students and teachers with the appropriate support and materials to develop school wide, student driven awareness programs. We have learned that Students in Durham are passionate, dedicated and creative!
If you are interested in getting your school involved with Stomping Out Stigma or you want to see what other schools have been doing, here are some examples and resources you can use for your own projects.
