In this next session of the youth club “Be a Man”, Gerta, our coach, discussed with young people the topic “Labels” from the accredited manual “Program Y”.
Through a friendly conversation, the club members learned about the ways in which name calling affects the process of development, socialization and relationship building.
Girls and boys shared their experiences when they were name-called or used name-calling by analyzing the negative impact of the phenomenon.
The members of the club agreed that labeling is in fact one of the most harmful and painful forms of bullying, although it can often be done unintentionally, without immediately understanding the true impact and damage of our words.
It is the first time that this group of young people systematically addresses such sensitive topics, challenging the mentality of violence and inequality, manifested in various forms, including name-calling.
