This workshop focuses on personal missions or sense of purpose. The activities you will lead will help youth identify what might be a mission they already feel motivates their actions. You may have reflected upon lifetime missions, but have you thought about your mission related to leading this program? For what purpose are you working with youth? What do you hope to achieve by leading this program? Your mission might be to help youth appreciate poetry. It might be to examine the feelings that connect us as human beings. Whatever your sense of purpose may be, keeping it in focus while planning and leading the workshops might make the experience even more rewarding for you.
