As members of the Volunteer community, we must all work together to end hazing.Icon of speech bubbles

Be proactive in preventing hazing

  1. Know the rules
  2. Clarify expectations of membership
    • Members should be clear and transparent with new members about what they will encounter when they join the group.
  3. Hold yourself and your peers accountable
  4. When planning activities, consider:
    • What are the potential outcomes?
    • How does this activity align with the core values of the group?
    • What do you want members to gain from the experience?
    • What do you want your organizational culture to be? What you permit, you promote. The culture of any organization is shaped by the worst behavior leaders are willing to tolerate.
  5. Provide alternative activities for bonding
