• Respect and Confidentiality
  • Risk(stretch past your comfort zone)


  • Openness to new thoughts, ideas and opinions
  • Ouch (speak up if you are uncomfortable or hurt
  • Oops (take responsibility for our mistakes)


  • Participation (you get back what you put in)
  • Pass (active participation or active observation)


  • Education/Exploration (we are all learners and each of us has something to teach one another)


  • Speak for yourself (use I statements)
  • Stay Focused on what you can do to make changes

Again, this is what we have found to be useful as we prepare for workshops.  You might already have your own way of facilitating workshops – that’s great! Our only request is that you remember that these workshops are youth-driven and led and that they are safe spaces for the participants.
