The Workshop Staff Team will continue to work on developmental techniques that will enhance this age group’s ability to build friendships, communicate well with peers and family, and assimilate well into new groups or situations. There will be new games and new friendships to build.
The curriculum for Pathfinder is updated constantly in order to meet the needs and address current issues pre-teens are facing. However, there is a core to the curriculum and it follows three main principles:
|Six Pillars of Character||Three Powerful Medicines||Youth Development|
|Power of Genuine Apology
Power of Laughter & Play
Power of Honest Conversation
All three principles are invaluable life skills and assets that teach pre-teens how to effectively deal with everyday situations. If during Pathfinder we receive a great deal of feedback from participants during the workshop on specific topics, we will alter the curriculum to fit their needs. Also, about 80% of the curriculum can be introduced in multiple settings; partner activities, small/large group interactions, games, or skits/presentations. We utilize these settings based on the participants needs.
