From Hazing to Health
Leave “hazing” to the legal experts and focus instead on building a healthier organization. From Hazing to Health teaches five simple factors that clear up the confusion about hazing AND help you build a stronger, more successful chapter. Learn new techniques for building brotherhood and sisterhood, educating new members, and establishing a strong culture of honor and respect within your chapter. All without one worry about hazing! Along the way, you’ll also find out how to overcome problems like apathy, accountability and cliques.
About the From Hazing to Health Initiative
H2H is a proactive anti-hazing initiative designed to remove barriers to change and empower fraternity/sorority leaders to create healthier new member experiences. The program simplifies the definition of hazing so leaders are capable of making better decisions. It provides sample program outlines and alternative activities, and equips leaders with the skills to implement changes to their new member experience. After the program, From Hazing to Health participants consistently report a better understanding of hazing issues. Thanks to this success and the program's multi-faceted approach, it was recognized as winner of AFA's 2009 Excellence in Educational Programming Award.
Stronger Leaders + More Involvement = Better Chapter
You can't be a successful chapter without strong leaders. But strong leaders will struggle unless all of his/her members are contributing productively to the common goal. Unfortunately, many fraternities and sororities suffer from apathy, where most members are uninvolved and disengaged from the leadership of their chapter. Part of this dynamic is created during new member education where members role model their apathy, and new members learn that they only have to work hard for a few weeks before they can slack off. If we hope to reverse this dynamic, two specific things need to happen in new member education: the quality of the educational experience must improve, and every member has to be meaningfully involved in the process. From Hazing to Health helps you do more than 'avoid hazing;' it provides you with a road map for building a healthier, more successful chapter through new member education.
This is a larger initiative designed to empower chapter leaders to transform their new member program.
