1. Make cancer prevention compulsory in UK education

Butterfly Giving is a charity dedicated to fighting teenage cancer.

We believe that every teenager should be entitled to education in cancer prevention. Currently, 6 teenagers are diagnosed with cancer each and every day in the UK. This needs to stop.

Statistically, 1 in 3 people will be affected by cancer during their life time. By introducing cancer prevention into schools, we are leaving our young people a life time legacy.

If you believe that our young people deserve this fundamental knowledge; prove it. Please sign Butterfly Giving’s petition to make cancer prevention a compulsory part of the curriculum for UK schools.

Will you join the fight against teenage cancer?

2. Provide sanitary supplies for teen girls!

The anticipation and reality of transition into teenage years is challenging for girls. Research cites menstruation and its associated symptoms as the principal disadvantage of being a teenage girl.

Without proper sanitary products and care, the challenge is more prevalent and affects schooling and participation in sporting activities. Girls from less fortunate families are at risk of withdrawal and even could face infections.

3. Revisions to Teenage Driving Laws

Vechile accidents have long been to blame for the highest number of teenage deaths in the United States. Statistics show that teenage drivers, under laws now, are still at high risk of getting into accidents that could endanger not only their lives, but the lives of all those on the road.

With revisions to the currents laws teenage drivers would gain more experience, and become more intelligent, safer drivers and the bring the potential for the decreasement of their involvement in roadway accidents and deaths

4. Teenage Driving Limitations Bill

March 23, 2006

This is a bill that would prohibit teenagers with provisional licenses from carrying more than one passenger under the age of 21. Those driving with family members would be exempt.

The bill also would ban them from driving between midnight and 5 a.m. Provisional licenses are what 16- to 18-year-olds hold for a year before they can get their regular driver's licenses.

6. Reduction of High school hours

Teenage years are very difficult, school is a huge part of most teenagers' lives and is very stressful for them. The problems vary from their peers to grades and I feel both could be resolved by reducing school hours.

Most every student I've asks claims that they almost always have about 25-35 minutes of free time after each lesson. If every class period was half as long there would be just as much learned and more of an impact. Rather than have class assignments we could have homework more often. Drivers ed, makeup work, tutoring and other various school activities could be scheduled for after school.

With school not as long, students will not be as hesitant or nervous about attending school. Many students have problems with other kids or are harrassed by them so it makes more of an impact with school being such a big part of their lives. Students wouldnt have enough spare time to harm anyone if school was shorter but a student could have enough time to meet people. Most "bullies" only pick on others when they are bored or feel badly about themselves. I feel there would be less school violence, suicides, and less absences.
