STOP BULLYING 4
Strengths of the Organization
In the evaluation of the organization’s strengths, it is evident that the implementation if the project is not difficult. The company’s main idea is to enhance awareness so that individuals can voice their problems and for other people to listen. Furthermore, the project is not very costly in that it involves simple activities such as spreading the awareness through the word of mouth. Minimal costs will be incurred in advertisements.
Another strength of the company is that the topic addressed by the organization is of interest to many stakeholders such as parents, academic institutions and all those individuals that are concerned with the welfare of the youths or children. Therefore, the organization anticipates numerous support both financially and in all its activities.
Also, there has been increased awareness on the issue due to recent events (Smith, & Brain, 2016). The issue is still fresh in the minds of students and other stakeholders such as teachers and parents. The project is, therefore, timely and it is likely to be received positively especially because most people have prior knowledge of the issue. The team will not have a hard time helping the audience understand why the issue is significant.
The managers of the organization enjoy close relationship with teachers and other stakeholders in the academic institutions. The management will, therefore, hold meetings with them to encourage the creation of a caring environment with minimal or no cases of bullying. The assistance of teachers will prove resourceful especially when it comes to spreading awareness to the students.
Another strength of the organization is that it benefits from bipartisan support for promoting children rights. In today’s world, it is evident that all political parties are against the mistreatment of children (Berlin, & Ruscitti, 2011). Given that bullying counts as mistreatment, the organization will not have opponents that will make its operations difficult.
Furthermore, the organization plans to utilize school-wide universal approach in the schools hence it has a high chance of succeeding. The approach will not only help students develop emotional skills but also social skills to help students manage themselves. Here, the children, as well as adults, will learn how to come up with solutions to problems and how to think critically to make appropriate decisions (Berlin, & Ruscitti, 2011).
In collaboration with the academic institutions, the organization will create and implement a bullying policy. Given that the management has the full support of the schools, it will design a policy that clearly defines the meaning of bullying and a clear statement that bullying cases will not be tolerated. Furthermore, the team will be tasked with the responsibility of encouraging students to report cases and then provide an effective intervention rather than simple punishment. The policy will also outline the negative effects of bullying.
