While our focus is on awareness and education, we never lose sight of the long-term goal. Our mission and all of the programs we use to support it are designed to empower students to make safer decisions and beyond this - to be better people.
This is why we believe in recognizing and celebrating students for their strong character and compassionate influence. These individuals are leaders in our opinion, students we can all learn valuable lessons from. These individuals inspired us to create CWE's "Change-Makers"
This program not only recognizes students who give back through community service or volunteer work but also individuals who through random acts of kindness, forgiveness, and understanding enrich the lives of people around them, inspiring other students to follow in their footsteps. Change-Makers are students who strive to make their schools and communities better not for personal gain or academic success, but because they truly want to make their world a better place. Some examples of their stories are...
A Student that stands up for a friend or classmate that is being bullied, despite the possible backlash.
A Student who creates a positive cause in their school or community, or gives selflessly to a worthy cause or movement.
A Student, who exemplifies through their action, a desire to connect, understand, or empathize with another individual or group that is very "different" from them.
A Student who contributes emotional support to a family, friend, or stranger in-need.
Students, parents, family-members and friends, as well as school counselors and teachers can send an email to us either through www.cweducation.com or via our Facebook Fan Page, nominating an individual for recognition and briefly telling us, "why they should be considered a Change-Maker."
At least once a quarter, members of CWE's Advisory Board will review these submissions and select one student who will be recognized as the next "Change-Maker."
In September of each year, one "Change-Maker"
"The Change-Maker of the Year," will be awarded the $1,000.00 scholarship and recognized for their accomplishment in all of CWE's marketing efforts during the next year.
All nominees will be invited to become decision-makers for the program in the next year, reviewing and voting for future quarterly and yearly "Change-Makers."
