This unit encourages students to think about the people in their lives that help them work through problems. Allies are people who help us when we’re having trouble, whether it’s academic, emotional, social, career-based, or more. They also help keep us accountable to our future goals and aspirations.
In this unit, we’ve pulled together some resources which help young people reflect on who the allies in their lives are, as well as how to be an ally to those around them. We’ve provided some questions to stimulate reflection and thinking, and explained some simple concepts with the aim of expanding their thinking.
