SO, ABOUT THIS YEAR . . .
Change takes Courage
PACT is not the same organization we were when the year started😉 Like the rest of the world, we were forced out of our comfort zones. But, we know great things never come from our comfort zones!
For the past several months, we have been playing with online platforms, surveying our young people, adapting our curriculum, and crafting new avenues for offering our people skills to more teenagers and young adults.
This August, we are replacing our "Clubs on Campus" with a virtual conversation series for high school students and a 6-week virtual workshop course for college students. And, we are unveiling a long overdue PACT for adults (ages 25+). We will continue to provide our "Be Bold" Workshop Series for private groups.
It's all about #zoomlife! As everything transitions from face-to-face to virtual, our life skills curriculum is needed now more than ever. It's a privilege for us to be available to young people across the nation and we are honored to serve those that need us the most.
Stay tuned for registration details on upcoming workshops.
We are Zooming.
PACT promises young people ages 16-24 a BOLD lifestyle! Our Youth Leadership Team zooms on Tuesdays at 5pmPST, while our private Be Bold Workshop Series with Coalition for Engaged Education and Harvest Home happens on Wednesdays. If you want to get in on this, email us to join our Youth Leadership Team Zoom meeting, start a new Zoom meeting, and/or be a guest at a Zoom meeting.
Inquiring Minds Want to Know: What does a Be Bold Workshop Series look like, anyway?
PACT creates safe, accepting [Zoom] spaces for humans ages 16-24. A Be Bold Workshop Series ranges from 4 to 10 weeks and curriculum is tailored, accordingly. The first workshop is about building rapport (and trust) among the participants. Every series begins with defining self-worth and identifying personal examples of when we have or have not honored our worth ( i.e. staying in an abusive relationship, setting boundaries with a partner, etc.). Next, participants define and identify personal boundaries, as well as discuss how personal values influence relationships. Most of us find it challenging to align our worth, values, and people. For instance, a common question is, how do you cut off that friend from elementary school that disrespects you, but you've been friends forever? The answer is always rooted in self worth:-) Last, we identify the ingredients of an equal partnership and learn to communicate assertively. The FML portion encourages participants to seek advice for their real life situationships. This is always a favorite:-)
