Participants (Harvest the Power)

The Harvest the Power program is designed for adult participants of all ages and stages of life, young adult through elder, who currently hold positions of congregational leadership or are considering a congregational leadership position. Possible participants include current and potential board members, committee members, task force members or small group leaders. Workshops can accommodate any number of participants, with six a suggested minimum. If you have more than 12, consider adding a third facilitator to your team.

Integrating All Participants

People of all ages have a range of abilities, disabilities and sensitivities. Be sure to ask individual participants to identify any disability or sensitivity-related accommodations they will need.

Find general guidance for accommodating disabilities and sensitivities in Workshop 1, Leader Resource 1. The Unitarian Universalist Association website and staff can offer guidance for including people with specific disabilities; consult the Acces s ibility section of the Leaders' Library on the UUA website. In addition, some workshop activities suggest specific adaptation under the heading, "Including All Participants."

Participants bring a wide range of learning styles and information processing preferences. With this in mind, the workshops offer a variety of activities. Review each workshop's Alternate Activities. Plan each workshop to best suit your group.
