I am Greater learning resources

Young people in Greater Manchester are choosing to say ‘violence isn’t me … I am greater’….

If you’re a teacher or youth worker, please download and use our ‘I am greater’ learning resources.

These resources will provide a safe space to discuss violence and how young people can work together to be greater than violence.
Find a lesson overview document, PowerPoint presentation and accompanying behaviour and activity sheets to download. You can run the whole session (approximately 1 hour), or just run certain activities.
