“Power of One” – Training Film

It is with heartfelt gratitude to the Boys & Girls Club members along with South Salem High School students, the Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting Project® developed the “Power of One” Training Film. This ten-minute film is intended for middle and high school students and adult audiences. “The Power of One” is used by schools and professional groups across the nation. It was produced to inspire people of all ages to take the Purple Hands Pledge® to heart and apply it in their daily lives.

This film features unscripted testimonials from students who were impacted by the Purple Hands Pledge®. The “Power of One” training film went from Salem, Oregon to Harvard University’s National Symposium: Children at Risk. All of the students who participated in the making of the “Power of One” received an official certificate from Kimberly M. Thompson, Director, Harvard School of Public Health, in recognition of their national activism.
