Do something

to raise the youth

No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship

Dr. Comer

Be an emotionally available adult

You may want to be a volunteer mentor for young people and be a “champion” for a young person.

This provides them with a “secure base”, someone who can help to regulate their emotions and build a trusting relationship with.

Someone who can model the role of a trusting adult to a child to enable them to understand how to form and maintain trusting relationships with others.

Social Action

Social action is about people coming together to help improve their lives and solve the problems that are important in their communities.

It can include volunteering, giving money, community action or simple neighbourly acts.

Through the commitment and skill of citizens, social action can empower communities, help people in need, and complement public services.

Taking part in social action is also associated with higher levels of wellbeing and can improve people’s confidence and skills.

Heroes are Ordinary People whose social action is Extra-Ordinary / who ACT when others are passive, who give up EGO-centrism for SOCIO-centrism

Philip Zimbardo
