The Rite of Passage is something that should never be endured. Because people aren’t educated, innocent people have lost their lives. Those men and women could have been saved had they and everyone involved been educated on the dangers of initiation.
When it comes to hazing most people, including those in charge, tend to turn a blind eye. It’s sad to think that others wouldn’t want to report an initiation incident. Forcing a newbie is not only wrong, but could lead to accidental death.
If you follow the NMB Foundation Blog, you’ll know that most people surveyed during a study felt that it was something that was always done. Humiliation was the Rite of Passage.
When it Comes to Hazing Education is the Key
Being informed about the dangers of initiation helps those involved make positive and thoughtful decisions.
What would have been kept secret in the past comes out when people are educated about the dangers of hazing. Most people are clueless when it comes to the real statistics on deaths related to initiation.
The NMB Foundation has the tools in place to educate your social club or fraternity or sorority. After a thought provoking presentation, everyone will be better informed on the dangers and how widespread they really are.
Knowing When to Speak Up
Speaking up isn’t an option. If hazing is going on it needs to be reported. Had someone reported it when it was happening that hospital visit or death could have been avoided.
Talking to the authorities is first and foremost, and if you don’t trust them, talk to the head of the facility. It isn’t unusual for a coach or leader to turn a blind eye when it comes to the Rite of Passage.
