Description of Activity

Youth discuss scenarios involving ethical dilemmas.

Seek a volunteer to read one of the two dilemmas. Open the floor to reactions and answers. For each dilemma, ask participants if this reminds them of another dilemma they have encountered or heard of, real or fictional. Ask, "How could loyalty play a part in this dilemma?"

If time permits, role play the dilemmas.
