2. WORKSHOPS

A. LET IT MOVE

(THE DANCE WORKSHOP)

Participants learn leadership through ballroom dance. Positive communication, risk-taking,
teamwork, goal-setting, and
discipline are all covered in a way that will stick in your memory. It’s a fun and educational way to “break the ice” and get youth moving. This workshop can include total crowd participation or select volunteers depending upon request and space availability. (Maximum occupancy contingent upon space and sound equipment)

B. THE “OWN IT”

PERSONALITY TEST

Have you ever wondered why you mesh with certain people and clash with others? In this workshop,
participants complete the “Own It” personality test to help them
increase personal clarity. Exercises and acting out real-life situations will make students laugh and help them make the most of their unique personality while effectively relating and leading others. They also learn to respond to “dark personalities” in a positive way to resolve conflict.

C. LIVE A FUL”FILLED”
LIFE

Participants create moments that matter by filling their “buckets.” There are three buckets. The red bucket is for love, which is building and pouring into relationships. The yellow bucket is for joy, which is finding and pouring into your
purpose(s). The blue bucket it for peace, which is learning to be
content. Filling these three buckets teaches students to live a balanced and fulfilled life.

D. YOUR LIFE STORY

Students watch short clips from popular movies and are challenged with detecting the conflict,
motivation, and resolution of each scene. Movie trivia is also included. Students are asked, “If your life is a movie, what conflict is your
character going through, what’s their motivation, and how would you like to see them resolve or
overcome? What resources or other characters are you possibly
overlooking? This workshop helps students step outside of themselves and examine their past, present, and future in a fun and enlightening way.
