If giving with intentionality is the destination, then the mission statement is the road map and coming to consensus is the vehicle. Using values exploration, teens are called upon to communicate their personal beliefs with their peers. Throughout the year the mission statement road map will be used, helping the group decide which route will best lead them to their achieve goals. From the start, teens will be challenged with the task to define what matters to them as individuals and how each individual can be represented within the group. As discussions unfold, teens will explore the final items they’d like to “pack” or outline as they discuss and make decisions through consensus. They will build respect, rapport and trust; and while not every item (or value), can fit when packing the car, everyone’s voice has been heard to determine what essentials are needed to reach their collective goal.
