Organizing Chapters of Change Vanguard in Secondary Schools across Nigeria and training them on positive attitude.


1. Preamble

• We are aware that bad attitude is the bane of every society.

• Have you noticed the increasing cases of deviant behaviours and bad attitude in our work places, Educational Institutions, Government and even in our homes?

• Do you know that no school or institutions offers a course or subject on attitudinal change?

• Do you know that the current unemployment problem in the country can be solved with a change in attitude?

• And do you know that the much talked about change can only be achieved when you and I make conscious effort to change our bad attitude for the better?

In the light of this, the Institute of Attitudinal Change Managers Social Campaign Division has commenced a process of constituting Change Vanguard in schools, organisation etc that will serve as ‘Change Agents’ as well as endearing both the old and the new generations the virtue of positive attitude in our organisations, schools and society, which is fast being eroded or seen as unrewarding

2. About the Institute

The Institute of Attitudinal Change Managers was duly approved by the Federal Ministry of Education and Federal Ministry of Justice under the company and Allied Matters Act 1990, in February 2014 and commenced operations in May 2014.

The Institute which is currently based in Benin-City is gradually spreading to other states of the federation.

The Institute was established with the aim of making a subject out of Attitude Change and to professionalize Attitudinal Change management.

It seeks to train a crop of Attitudinal Change Managers and Change Vanguards who would serve as professionals and agents respectively in our Educational Institutions, Government and the nation at large
