The Friday session is designed for and limited only to kids who have attended at least one of the other days, Monday to Thursday.
This last day of the week-long programme will bring together what each child has experienced and learned over the past four days. Activities are designed to stimulate reflection and discussion about how each participant may continue to take positive action in their communities, do for others and contribute to causes that are important to them in the future and throughout their lives.
To support such lifelong values and behaviours, programme facilitators will introduce topics such as, how to learn about people who are different from you while engaging them with respect and empathy, or how doing for others may be the best way to feel good about yourself.
Each participant will create something about the social or environmental cause that they are most passionate about, including reference to what they hope to do after the programme and in the future. With support from course facilitators, they may write a poem, story or speech; or craft an artwork or another form of expression. We will get together in a group and they may choose to share their creative work and what it means.
Today's course will be facilitated by Phillip Kapeleris of Cause Corps and Simona Turin of GetReal. Phillip coaches teams and executives towards more empathetic ways of working, bringing wholeness and autonomy back into the workplace. Outside of his 9-5 job, as a Director of Cause Corps, he serves his people in eight cities around the world to make doing good a daily habit for close to 5,000 volunteers.
