Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Families: A Jr. High School Youth Program that Explores the Diversity, Commonality, and Meaning of Families

Activity 1: Project Check

Part of Families

Activity time: 10 minutes

Description of Activity

Allow as much time as you need to check in with individuals and/or groups about their projects. This is especially important if youth are conducting the second meeting with families individually. Be sure to talk about logistics, areas in which they need support, and how they are feeling about the projects. Getting a realistic picture of the status of family photographs and write-backs now will assure that all participants are put on track for completion of the project together. When facilitating, be sure to problem-solve as a group. Link participants to each other for help and support. Make sure that participants are confident about how to proceed with gathering write-backs and strategizing as a group as needed.
