Each activity targets specific personal, social and community matters by drawing on the five primary Social and Emotional Learning domains (Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills and Responsible Decision Making). Each dialogue is conducted in a shared learning environment that encourages participants to express their emotions, listen attentively to the stories of others and develop an appreciation for the diversity that surrounds them. When done properly, the discussion builds upon the thoughts, personal insights and overall group experience, enables participants to recognize the benefits of authentic connection with one another and challenges them to rise above, go the extra mile and use their voice to stand up for what they believe in.
