Ben McNamee, Inc., is a non-profit educational corporation established under section 501 (c ) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Articles of Incorporation were filed with the Florida Department of State Division of Corporations for a Florida Not for Profit Corporation. Through its Ben’s Been Thru It Just Don’t Do It Movement the corporation provides services to communities within the United States of America. Many students join formal and informal organizations that foster an atmosphere for the unsuspecting and unknowledgeable young adults to become victims of intimate illegal hazing practices. The Movement seeks to bring a heightened awareness and understanding to middle school, high school and college students, and others, about hazing and its unintended consequences.
The Ben’s Been Thru It Just Don’t Do It Movement provides valuable life-enriching lessons that focus on: developing leadership skills by exploring one’s innate qualities; understanding the importance of making sound choices and better decisions while under pressure; and, how not to yield to peer pressure, perhaps the greatest contributor to hazing: the imposition of strenuous or humiliating tasks on others as a part of a program, group, organization, etc.
