What are the Transformations Awards?
For the first time in 2019, Project PAVE will launch the Transformations Awards at our annual Transformations Luncheon. The Transformations Awards recognize personal transformation, and honor youth attending schools where PAVE does work who are making positive contributions towards ending the cycle of relationship violence by raising awareness and empowering themselves and others in their schools and community. Through the award process, we hope to empower more youth to take a stand against relationship violence, and encourage youth to continue their activist work in post-secondary education and beyond.
What is the project?
Through a creative creation, applicants must show their vision of a community free from relationship violence. The creation should capture what program participants have learned form PAVE and address what role they will play, or are currently playing in achieving a world free from relationship violence. We want to hear about the innovative and positive ways that you are impacting yourself and/or your community! Here are some examples of creative creation mediums:
