“The Mirror” – The focus of this workshop will be to unpack the messages that media sends us on a daily basis, understand and combat societal pressures to look and act a certain way, and learn to build and maintain a healthy self-image for ourselves and encourage the same in others.
Sunday, November 3rd – 3:00-5:00 PM
“Choices (online, offline, and out of line!)” – The exercises and stories included in this workshop will emphasis centering our inner compass and managing our time, morals, relationships, and overall life. A spotlight will be placed on digital citizenship, and how we monitor our time and behavior online.
Sunday, November 17th – 3:00-5:00 PM
“Pressure Cooker” – activities aimed to help mothers and daughters identify external pressures to say and do certain things, and define whether these pressures are positive or negative influences, will be the core of this workshop. An emphasis will be placed on recognizing positive people to be a part of one’s “healthy crew”.
