About This Workshop
The purpose of this workshop is to create awareness about the process of structuring a personal story
and tell (not read!) it to an audience. The focus for the personal stories will be a social theme, so the children reflect on advocating for others through their own personal stories.
The workshop consists of:
– Exercises that serve to create a safe space, where children feel comfortable to take risks without
– Discussing the social theme and how we can advocate for others;
– Listening to a personal story, as an example, from the workshop coach;
– Being introduced to the “Personal Story Plan” form;
– Planning a personal short story;
– Telling the story to the large group (2 to 3 volunteers), and telling it in a small group (everyone);
– Learning to give positive feedback, by focusing on what others do well;
– Reflecting on the whole experience.
