BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
The Boys & Girls Club training went well despite the challenges. We had 20 kids, 4 AFSC interns & Ahmane’. We came in with a positive attitude. Some of the kids were a bit slow to join in but when they did get into it then it felt like a party! Those kids were so smart. They knew what nonviolence was and ways to be nonviolent. We went through our agenda smoothly and confidently. Our confidence made the kids feel like they could trust the process and roll with us. In the middle of our training we had to readjust to different timing issues. We were flexible and made the adjustments to efficiently end our workshop.
We made sure that the kids understood what they were being taught so that they could teach others. The kid’s energy was great the whole time, they participated in every activity. They had very good attitudes towards us. The kids kept on asking us when we were coming back. They wanted us to come every Friday. It warmed my heart to know that the kids learned a lot and wanted to keep on learning about nonviolence with us. Just when we were about to leave all of the kids ran up to us wanting to gives us huge hugs. I can’t wait until we go back because they were one of our best groups.
