Approach: Week of October 22nd
Last week our 9th grade BYEP groups focused on the topic of Support. Our workshop consisted of a journal on the ideas of empathy and vulnerability, as well as a Raccoon Circles activity aimed at creating a physical metaphor for Support.
The 10th grade groups explored group reflection. We journaled and discussed what our group means to each of us, and how we want to grow moving into Crux this winter. One of the 10th grade groups had their gratitude week and served at the Fork & Spoon pay-what you can restaurant. For adventure the entire BYEP crew participated in the annual Run For Your Life 5K run to support the Help Center and create awareness around suicide.
On Sunday, November 18th kids, mentors and staff will celebrate Thanksgiving and give thanks for another great year at BYEP! Kids are encouraged to bring their favorite side dish to complement our turkey feast.
