Building Community

The existing peer culture is one of the most powerful forces that shape a youth program. It can have a big impact on young lives. Instructors can positively affect this culture by putting expectations/routines into place and building community techniques to enable youth to get to know each other and treat each other well.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will explore ways they can build community with youth.
2. Participants will explore ways to provide youth with opportunities to develop a sense of belonging.
3. Participants will understand the difference between icebreakers, energizers, name games and bonding games.
4. Participants will understand how groups form.
