Workshops

You! Be You!

The students will participate in a few different activities that are relatable to self-image. The goal of this workshop is to educate the students on how the media impacts a person’s self-image. The students will leave our workshop with a better understanding on self-image and hopefully a more positive look at themselves.

Presented by : Brittney Tarkanyi, Lake Orion High School and Aitana Massey, Marion High School.

Hidden Treasures

Hidden Treasures is a topic to break up labels and preconceptions society places on people and to help everyone find the beautiful treasure inside. This workshop will have different activities such as Human Bingo- which shows the unique opportunities each person has been privileged to do or say through a game destroy the biased beliefs of stereotypes- ones categorizing of another by race or religion. The take away message will send a wow factor of breaking an ugly piñata that is going to symbolize judgement and hatred and break it open to see gold coins that say you are amazing in every way and that no one can tell you or judge you from becoming UNSTOPPABLE!

Petal Practice

Our workshop is about self acceptance, and we will have various self accepting ways/words, each represented by a different color petal. Each person is to pick the petal that best resonates with them, and place them on the “big mirror” in the room. These petals will form a flower around the paper cutout mirror that states ways to overcome the obstacle that’s stops people from accepting themselves. The goal of the workshop is for everyone to know that they are not alone and can learn from each other how to overcome obstacles hindering them from realizing their full potential.

Presented by: Saige Schwerin, Holly High School, Annie Bradley Holly High School, and Benjamin Goss, Waterford Mott High School.
