Part of Virtue Ethics

Activity time: 20 minutes

  • Materials produced in the previous workshops

Preparation for Activity

  • Arrange/assign food and beverages, paper goods, and other items you wish to have. Find out about and make all food providers aware of food allergies or restrictions in the group.
  • Optional: Gather and display materials produced by the youth during the program. You may wish to invite youth to bring their anklets for display.

Description of Activity

The group celebrates the end of the program and the work they have done.

Since this is the last workshop, you might want to set aside time for a small celebration. Include food and drink, brought by participants, families, and/or co-leaders.

Invite the participants and any guests (families, your congregation) to see any materials the youth have displayed, including the youth's anklets. Discuss the virtues examined in the program. Invite the youth to share about recent encounters with any of the virtues. Play the games you may have designed in this and previous workshops.
