Five of our star QUESTion Student Ambassadors came together last week to facilitate a 3-hour workshop for their peers at Global Kids, a nonprofit organization that provides global education and leadership development programs for NYC-based youth.
This was one of our first student-led workshops, and we are thrilled to say it was a big success. Our Ambassadors,ages 13-18, showed tremendous leadership, vulnerability and creativity as they inspired other high school students and recent graduates to ask big questions and discuss topics of key importance and relevance to their lives.
The afternoon included group exercises, activities and discussions that addressed the theme of the unknown future and life after high school. As the group discussed the challenges they face and their hopes and visions for the future, they shared a realization that they are not alone in questioning who they are and where they are going. Among the big questions that came out of the event, one that resonated strongly with the group was: “How can I go forward with confidence – even though I’m not sure what I want to do or who I want to become?”
