Hazing is pressuring someone to do something to join a group, club or team. It’s still considered hazing whether or not the hazed person takes part.
Hazing is generally a form of bullying or violence, and includes initiation ceremonies that cause, or are likely to cause, harm.
Hazing can involve being made to:
- participate in drinking games or consume large amounts of alcohol
- sit on the floor while others sit on chairs
- wear clothes intended to be embarrassing.
What to do
If the situation becomes threatening or potentially dangerous, call:
