Families (Virtue Ethics)

An adolescent’s notion of family expands to include their close friends, while the home family remains a touchstone. This curriculum is designed to include the family and friends of participants as well as your wider faith community. Two features engage these important people in the program’s themes and ideas:

1. Each workshop provides a Taking It Home handout with ideas for youth to lead conversations and activities with their friends and family. Collect the email addresses of participants’ parents/caregivers so you can send them the Taking It Home section after each workshop.

2. Each workshop offers a Faith in Action activity. Most of these engage congregational leaders and/or parents/caregivers to interact with the youth about the topics the youth are exploring.
