MOT’s mission is to develop robust youth, who include all – by strengthening awareness and courage.
Why is that important?
MOT prevents problems in the society like bullying, violence, alcohol and drug abuse, exclusion and mental problems.
- Lower frequency of bullying.
MOT develops youth’s awareness of their responsibilities and values, which in turn prevents frequent bullying.
- Fewer youth report to have no friends at all.
MOT develops inclusive school environments, which decrease the number of youth who report to have no friends at all.
- Reducing mental health problems.
MOT helps prevent mental health problems by improving youth’s self-confidence, self-respect and sense of mastery.
- Less drug abuse.
MOT strengthens youth’s awareness, courage and positive attitude, which in turn prevents drug abuse.
WHY make a life skills concept?
- Why do some people destroy their lives?
- Why do some people destroy other people’s lives?
- Why do some people destroy the society?
The MOT concept was first and foremost developed to reduce problems in the society and in people’s lives.
However, we have experienced that there are many additional impacts, such as strengthened awareness, courage, go-ahead spirit, learning orientation, optimism, sense of mastery, joy, passion, inspiration, self-confidence, self-esteem, belief in own abilities, ability to make own choices, solidarity, better class culture, culture of safety and culture of thriving. MOT is also used as a tool in culture-building and leader development.
The greatest part of this, is that youth and others use MOT in their own way!
The thoughts and background for the MOT concept is embodied in six elements and based upon the following three factors:
- What MOT is passionate about
- What MOT can be the world’s greatest in doing
- How MOT can be realised
If we implement the MOT concept, it will strengthen the possibility for MOT to succeed even more for all time when it comes to developing robust youth who include all.
