February has been very active for MOT Latvia in broad areas of activity: successfully leaded MOT sessions in schools, new MOT sessions for business people leaded, presentations looking for new MOT schools in the next school year, following up the political situacion in order to pay attention to MOT at political level.
MOT is a youth and society builder. MOT strengthens youth's robustness, quality of life, mental health, awareness and courage. MOT prevents exclusion, bullying, violence, alcohol and drug abuse, crime and mental problems. What makes MOT unique is MOT's brand, the programmes, the enthusiasts and that youth use MOT in their own way. MOT's initiators are the former Norwegian top athletes Atle Vårvik and Johann O. Koss.
The MOT Concept
MOT's life skills concept is founded on the purpose to create a safer society through strengthening youth's robustness, awareness and courage – courage to live, courage to care and courage to say no. The MOT Concept is like a key-card that is lent to schools, municipalities and countries on a partnership premise.More about the concept
A major part of the MOT Concept is the five documented effective and specially designed programmes used by schools and municipalities. MOT's main activity areas are in secondary and upper secondary schools. MOT promotes safe school environments where all are included. A significant part of the MOT Programmes is the recruitment and education of self-moving MOT coaches, school leaders and leaders in municipalities.More about the programmes
MOT Denmarks focus in February has been on following up on schools that are interested in having MOT as their preferred Life Mastery culture building program and philosophy. Most of the schools are from our MOT information gatherings in MOT schools all over the country.
