The Imprint Project is a program that supports student committees in high schools. These committees promote respect for diversity and combat intolerance, discrimination and bullying.

Headed by an ENSEMBLE project leader, the student committees identify an intolerance issue in their school, develop a plan of action and, throughout the school year, initiate awareness and mobilization activities for a positive transformation in their school. Imprint committee students thus act as a springboard by informing and equipping their fellow students and by taking concrete actions to promote living together and respect for diversity in all its forms.

Not only do these activities have highly mobilizing potential, they considerably impact the climate in the participating schools and further promote student commitment and leadership and empower young people to create a more open, safe and inclusive school.

Imprint Projects draw their strength and inspiration from the fact that they are initiated, designed, developed and implemented by and for students. Thus, they achieve their target with greater outreach, and succeed in having considerable impact on the school.
