Do the Write Thing

All across America, students are rising to the challenge of doing something to end youth violence.  Montana’s Do the Write Thing Challenge is a violence prevention program that allows middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact on their lives and to communicate in written form what they think should be done to reduce youth violence.  By encouraging students to make personal commitments to do something about the problem, the program ultimately seeks to give them the opportunity to break the cycles of violence in their homes, schools, and neighborhoods.  Do the Write Thing is an initiative of the National Campaign to Stop Violence. 

If you would like to participate in the Do the Write Thing challenge, or would like more information, please email Rachel Gemar at rachel.gemar@mt.gov.
